Mexico asks Guatemala to extradite ex-governor

Thursday, June 8, 2017

The Mexican government has formally requested the extradition of a fugitive governor captured in April in Guatemala.

Guatemala’s foreign ministry in a message to reporters said Wednesday the request has been forwarded to justice officials so it could be considered by the court handling Javier Duarte’s case.

Judges will consider evidence produced by Mexico to support its corruption charges.
