Tudor remains in Mexico City’s North Prison while awaiting extradition to Romania

Mexico City, Mexico — The Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) says that the extradition of Florian Tudor back to Romania will be “very fast”. Marcelo Ebrard, head of SRE explained “I could not say exactly if it will be today or this weekend, but they did tell me that it will be very fast.”

Tudor, who was a resident of Cancun, remains in a Mexico City prison while his extradition papers are put in order. In Mexico, Tudor has been accused of leading an ATM bank card cloning operation in the tourist areas of the state, in particular, the Cancun and Riviera Maya regions.

He was arrested Thursday while in an office of the Attorney General of the Republic in Mexico City. He was taken into custody on an outstanding arrest warrant in Romania on charges of organized crime, extortion and attempted aggravated murder.

Early Friday, Florian Tudor was admitted to the North Prison in Mexico City after a judge found his capture legal based on an arrest warrant for extradition purposes, judicial sources reported.
