Mexico: Ex-Pemex official detained over 27-million-peso bribe

The federal Attorney General’s Office (FGR) arrested a former Pemex manager accused of having embezzled 27 million pesos (US $1.1 million) after three fuel companies gave him the money for tankers that were never delivered.

The former deputy director of operations at Pemex Logistics, Luis Alberto Núñez Santander, promised the companies a total of 700 tankers of gasoline in exchange for a 30% advance, but allegedly never came through with his side of the deal.

The FGR said its special corruption division executed an arrest warrant for Núñez for his probable role in crimes of the misuse of his office, powers and faculties.
