Jesús Murillo Karam under investigation over millionaire fund diversion


Mexico’s Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) is working on several complaints against Jesús Murillo Karam, former Attorney General, and several former officers of the General Office over illegal use of power stemmed from a possible diversion of over MXN $ 102 million.

Federal sources informed that the UIF, led by Santiago Nieto, is investigating the origin and destination of the federal resources Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office spent between 2013 and 2014 but that did not account for and whose destination is unknown to date.

Part of the money whose destination is unknown was distributed among 189 informants who received over MXN $ 8 million and for extraordinary bonuses, among which stands out the payment of over MXN $ 1 million to a former colleague of the former Veracruz governor Javier Duarte de Ochoa.

This is due to the money investigated being part of the National and Public Security Expenditures items to which a total of MXN $ 144,586,662.11 were allocated between 2013 and 2014, which should have been expended by the General Office and of which MXN $ 102,519,297 have not been accounted for .
