This Thursday, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) reported that it obtained the arrest warrants against Inés Gómez Mont and Víctor Manuel Álvarez Puga for the crimes of organized crime and operations with resources of illicit origin.
Through a statement, the FGR also detailed that the arrest warrants are directed against five more people and seven companies. Three have already been completed and others are pending completion, including that of Gómez Mont and her husband.
“All these people, physical and moral, probably colluded to simulate operations and provide resources to that criminal organization; lowering tax burdens and hiding operations, thus hindering the tracking of those resources,” argued the prosecution.
