Former Mexican governor extradited from Guatemala under heavy security

According to BBC, the former governor of the eastern Mexican state of Veracruz has arrived back on home soil, after being extradited from Guatemala.

However, Mr Javier Duarte has been charged with corruption, money laundering and involvement in organised crime.

Mr Duarte resigned his post in October 2016. He has denied the allegations and vowed to clear his name.

But, he went missing a few weeks afterwards and was only arrested six months later in a hotel in Guatemala.

Mr Duarte was detained in the city of Solola in a joint operation between Interpol and Guatemalan police.

He is suspected of having siphoned off at least 645 million Mexican pesos ($35m; £28m) of public money that was put into a series of shell companies.

BBC also report that, during a search of his luxury ranch in Mexico, police also found 17 paintings believed to be by famous artists such as Joan Miró, Fernando Botero and Leonora Carrington.
