Former governor of the state of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge, rejected his extradition to Mexico.

Before the High Court of Appeal in the capital of Panama, after being questioned by Judge Yiles Pitti over his acceptance to be extradited to Mexico, he responded: “I do not agree, honorable judge,” in the hearing which had a recess at 15:11 hours.

The Panamanian lawyer Carlos Carrillo, Borge's attorney, remarked a series of alleged irregularities in the detention process of the former governor, occurred last Sunday at the Tocumen International Airport, in Panama, before boarding a plane to Paris, France.

Borge attended this afternoon to the High Court of Appeal, comprised of 3 judges, to the hearing requested by the Panama Attorney General's Office for International Affairs.

The Attorney General of Panama confirmed that the lawyers Carlos Carrillo and Arturo González Baso were hired by the former governor's family to assume his defense.
