New charges presented against former governor Borge

Chetumal, Q.R. — During a recent video conference, the former governor of Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge Angulo, was presented with a new charge against him for irregular performance of the public function.

Borge Angulo, who remains in a Morelos prison on federal charges, heard through a video conference the new accusation against him for allegedly improperly granting five concessions to companies in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. The new charge was delivered to him by a judge from the Oral Criminal Court of Chetumal.

“The accusation is based on the fact that the former official, having the power to grant these permits, ordered the discretionary delivery of said concessions and it is presumed that he violated different laws and regulations, classified as a criminal act, as established by the Criminal Code for the State Free and Sovereign of Quintana Roo,” said the Special Prosecutor’s Office Against Corruption, in a statement.

The former governor requested an extension of time for his defense. The Judge granted the deadline and ordered the interested parties to appear on November 12 at 10:00 a.m. to present corresponding debates and evidence.
