A Mexico City control judge issued an arrest warrant against Guillermo Héctor “Billy” Álvarez Cuevas, former director of the Cruz Azul Cooperative, over embezzlement.

The judge also issued an arrest warrant against his son, Guillermo Robìn Álvarez, lawyer Ángel MartÍnez JunquÉra Sepúlveda, Raúl Antonio Enríquez López, Jorge Fernández Rodríguez, Ángel Jiménez García, Mario Sánchez Álvarez, Armando García Lugo, Noé Calvo Morales, and Apolinar Ortíz Hernández.

The arrest warrants against all these people stem from the investigation file opened by Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office (FGR) after the Cruz Azul Cooperative’s Administration Board filed a complaint against Billy Álvarez and his inner circle on June 2.

They said the former Cruz Azul director created a trust, without having the powers to do so, through which he committed fraud against the organization worth MXN $257,411,000.

With the trust, Billy Álvarez transferred assets from the cement plants at Oaxaca and Hidalgo to CBL Fiducia, causing the members of the Cooperative and the owners of the facilities to pay rents they were not meant to pay.

This the second arrest warrant against Billy Álvarez for the FGR obtained the first one from a federal judge over organized crime and money laundering.

Moreover, Interpol also issued a red notice against Álvarez who is now wanted in 194 countries.
