A fugitive former governor of Mexico’s Veracruz state suspected of embezzling hundreds of millions of dollars has been detained in Guatemala after six months on the run, officials said on Saturday.

Javier Duarte “was located and detained for the purpose of extradition in the municipality of Panajachel”, in Guatemala’s Solola department, Mexico’s attorney general said in a statement.

“That’s why his capture is really important for Mexico’s federal government because until now it seemed that they just let him slip through their fingers despite all these allegations swirling around him.”
