Due to danger and irregularities César Duarte should not be extradited: defense
The document details that a political adviser stated in his statement that Cesar Duarte he could be assassinated if he is imprisoned in Mexico, it also indicates that other people linked to the ex-governor and accused by the Javier Corral administration have died in prison.
“Organized crime violence in Mexico represents a clear and present danger for Mr. Duarte as a former governor of a northern state. The former governor of Jalisco, Aristóteles Sandoval, was assassinated alone in a fancy restaurant weeks ago, probably by organized crime. Mr. Duarte faces the same fate as Mr. Sandoval if he returns to Mexico, ”the document reads.
Another reason why he allegedly cannot be extradited Cesar Duarte to Mexico, is that the extradition request, by the Mexican authorities, contains contradictory irregularities, and the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) concluded that Duarte had not misappropriated public funds during his tenure.
“This erases the probable cause evidence presented by the government. Furthermore, the government of Mexico has not presented any evidence that Mr. Duarte diverted money from its purpose, a key element of the embezzled charge, ”he adds.
