Three formally charged for transporting illegal migrants through Quintana Roo

Chetumal, Q.R. — Three men have been formally charged for transporting illegal migrants through the state of Quintana Roo. The three men were arrested November 30 after authorities discovered two buses carrying 173 illegal migrants.

The following day, more people were found hidden on two separate private properties in two different communities in the south of the state.

Since then, the three men who were arrested for their alleged involvement in being responsible for transporting the illegal migrants have been formally charged. On Monday, the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) in Quintana Roo announced the formal charges.

The FGR reported charges against “Luis “C”, Jesús “R” and Rigoberto “R”, for their probable responsibility in the commission of the crime of violation of the Migration Law, in its aspect of transporting migrants.”

The FGR reported the judge imposed preventive detention on them as a precautionary measure. They were transferred to the CERESO of the City of Cancun.
