A new arrest warrant against Karime Macías Tubilla, the ex-wife of former Veracruz Governor Javier Duarte, has been issued for tax fraud.

According to official information, the arrest warrant was the result of an investigation launched in 2018.

Karime Macías, who currently lives in London, failed to disclose her income tax in 2011 and 2012 when she was the first lady of Veracruz.

The investigation shows that authorities were able to determine Macías Tubilla incurred in tax fraud for MXN $2.4 million, as a result of the inconsistencies found between her income and her credit card record.

The Attorney General’s Office issued the arrest warrant on January 28.

Besides tax fraud, Karime Macías is accused of embezzlement against the Veracruz DIF for MXN $112 million.
