London court agrees to extradite former wife of Veracruz ex-governor

Mexico City, Mexico — The Westminster Magistrates Court gave the green light for the extradition of Karime Macías to Mexico. Macias, the ex-wife of former governor Javier Duarte, is wanted in Mexico on fraud charges.

London Judge Paul Goldspring said at a court hearing that the evidence is sufficient to warrant the extradition. However, the magistrate indicated that he will refer the case to the Minister of the Interior, Priti Patel, who is ultimately responsible for giving the final approval.

Mexico requested the extradition of Karime Macías, ex-wife of the former governor of Veracruz Javier Duarte, on allegations of fraud committed in the State System for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF).
