Businesses, civil society organizations and politicians have demanded that the money trail be followed until it leads to Humberto Moreira. This demand came after news was released last weekend that Javier Villarreal is being investigated in the United States for money laundering. Villarreal was a main financial operator when Moreira was governor of Coahuila.
Reforma published yesterday that Villarreal is being investigated by the DEA, the Internal Revenue Service and the Texas Attorney General’s Office for having allegedly led a multi-million dollar money laundering network using state resources of Coahuila.
Villarreal served as the main financial operator for Moreira, first as Secretary of Finance and then as Executive Secretary of the Administrative Tributary Service of the state.
