Mexico extradites national to Argentina to face money laundering charges

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican national wanted for money laundering has been extradited to Argentina. The man, identified as Isaac “E”, was sent to Argentina to face charges Tuesday from the Mexico City International Airport.

In a statement, the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR), reported that “a person of Mexican nationality required by the National Federal Criminal and Correctional Court number 11 of Argentina for crimes of money laundering of aggravated criminal origin,” was extradited from Mexico.

In 2003, Isaac “E” was allegedly part of a criminal association that organized a fundraising system to receive money in order to enrich himself illegally. Part of those funds were used in the commission of other crimes.

In December 2021, he was located in Monterrey, Nuevo León, and detained, for which the Government of Mexico granted the extradition of the person sought to the Government of the Argentine Republic.
