MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s federal Attorney General’s Office says it has taken over two corruption investigations involving the outgoing governor of Veracruz state.
Jose Guadalupe Medina Romero is head of the office’s branch for investigating federal crimes. He said in comments published online by the Attorney General’s Office late Wednesday that agents visited Veracruz prosecutors Monday to receive the investigation files.
The probes name Gov. Javier Duarte and others on suspicion of illegal enrichment, embezzlement and breach of duty.
