Macías has been summoned by the local court of Veracruz to face charges for the embezzlement of over MXN$ 100 million (roughly USD$ 5 million*) while she was the head of the Comprehensive Family Development System (DIF) of the state.

According to current Veracruz Governor Miguel Ángel Yunes, Macías is currently living in one of the most exclusive areas in London and spread images of her in the capital city of England.

“Karime Macías is key in the corruption network [of Duarte's administration]; She isn't just the wife of the Governor, she is a key player in the corruption network. Her arrest and trial will invite a brutal scandal but it's the door to gain access to the thousands and millions of pesos outside of Mexico,” said the Governor, who added they have information Macías is living a life of luxuries in London.
