Former Chihuahua Governor César Duarte has been arrested in the United States after years on the run.

In 2017, Chihuahua authorities issued an arrest warrant against him after discovering public debt has reached MXN 48,000 million, embezzlement for MXN 6,000 million, and the diversion of MXN 250 million for the PRI’s electoral campaign in 2015.

Back in 2017, the Federal Prosecutors’ Office asked the Interpol to search for Duarte in 190 countries after Chihuahua authorities asked federal authorities for help to find the former Governor.

In September 2019, César Duarte was spotted in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In May 2019, the PRI official kicked him out of the political party.
