Tudor and two members of his group to remain in prison

Mexico City, Mexico — The alleged leader of the Romanian mafia will remain under preventive detention in the Altiplano Prison in the State of Mexico after a judge found reason to keep Florian Tudor under lock and key.

During his arraignment, prosecutors were successful in presenting evidence to a Federal Criminal Justice Center judge showing that Florian Tudor, alleged leader of the Romanian mafia, and two other members of his group are likely responsible for ATM banking schemes, among other illicit activities.

According to the investigation of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), Florian T, Cosmin A and Alin G carried out more than 5,500 cash disposition operations in Mexico City, State of Mexico, Quintana Roo, Yucatán and Hidalgo.

They are charged with criminal association as well as crimes under the Credit Institutions Law.

During the hearing, the judge ordered all three to remain in preventative detention as a precautionary measure. Tudor will remain in prison in Mexico despite the outstanding arrest warrant against him in Bucharest, Romania for the crimes of attempted murder, blackmail and the creation of a criminal group.

In late May, Tudor was taken into police custody. He had been living in Cancun. Earlier this month, Tudor was successful in obtaining an Amparo that would see his extradition to Romania avoided.
