The federal Attorney General’s office said last October it had requested such a notice. This week, the information concerning Duarte, wanted for organized crime and money laundering, appeared on the Interpol website.

Duarte disappeared in October after a growing number of accusations of corruption were made against him. On October 18, a federal judge issued an arrest order.

But his whereabouts have been unknown since October 12 when he took a leave of absence from the governor’s office “to confront the charges against him.”

The Attorney General has offered a 15-million-peso reward for information leading to his arrest.

    Almost funny considering that criminals Carter, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, and Kissinger, are still walking around, and criminals Johnson, Nixon, and Regain died not on the gallows.

    I guess not sharing the loot upline is worse than the killing and looting of millions?!

    An American citizen, not US subject.

      Why, considering the weightier matters of justice in Mexico, are you so nationalistic, narcissistic, fixated on U.S. concerns? Mexico needs encouragement to progress in changing its traditional acceptance of criminality in a country where even a comparatively slight encroachment into the public coffer affects so widespread a constituency. To say, “mostly the poor,” is an insult to common sense.
      We’re discussing Mexico, not the U.S., Mr. “An American citizen, not US subject”? Seems you still carry that sense of U.S. superiority, looking down on Mexicans, considering the concerns of el Pueblo Mexicana to be inferior, second-rate, not worth elevating to those of America’s.
      This article has little, if any, relation to the supposed crimes of the U.S. officials you mentioned.

      Couldn’t agree more, but what do you mean by “an american citizen, not a US subject”?

      • K. Chris C.

        Totalitarian governments and tyrannies always subsume the individual to the state, a legal entity. Americans have been slowly imbued, brainwashed, with identifying themselves with the US state and service to the same–I.e. subjects.

        That’s in contrast to being an American citizen with a sense of loyalty and responsibility to one’s fellow countrymen and the land they reside in–I.e. citizens of the American country.

        An American citizen holds allegiance to his fellow American countrymen and the country, not to the US nation state. A subject of the US nation state holds allegiance to the US state, and only has contempt for his fellow American countrymen. One need only talk to a neo-con and Zionist supporting Christian to understand the difference.

        It is about who and what one serves; Is loyal and responsible to. It has nothing to do with the corporatist view of the US, or “Sovereign American” movement.

        An American citizen, not US subject.

    Why doesn’t the famed CIA get more involved, after all (and grudgingly) they have offices all over Mexico.

    Thanks for the heads up!
