César Duarte, silent kleptomaniac – Arsenal


By. Jose C. Serrano

Cesar Horacio Duarte Jaquez, a 59-year-old male is originally from Parral, Chihuahua. A former member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), he was a federal deputy twice and governor of Chihuahua (2010-2016).

At the height of power as a local ruler, César Duarte loved helicopters. He used to use these official devices to travel on weekends to his ranch, a vast property equivalent to 600 soccer fields.

Such was the frequency of visits to the El Saucito ranch, that he set up a personal heliport and a dirt track almost a kilometer long. The property was outfitted with homes totaling 1,600 square meters, a pond, a lagoon, and barnyards for Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses.

In public records appear up to 36 properties in his name: eight thousand hectares with an approximate value of 100 million pesos. César Horacio carried out real estate operations as controversial as the construction of a dam with a capacity for 3 million cubic meters of water within his own ranch. The Parralense remained in the systematic refusal to publish his heritage.

His government period ended and helicopter trips are over. Javier Corral Jurado, a member of the National Action Party (PAN), would be the new head of the Government Palace. Accusations of corruption began to rain down on the deposed César Duarte.

The former governor fled after concluding his administration. The new state president was informed that his predecessor had chosen the city of Houston, Texas, United States, to establish his residence. In March 2017, César Duarte was already considered a fugitive from Mexican justice and 21 arrest warrants weighed on him.

In July 2019, the Eighth District Judge based in the state of Morelos determined that Duarte Jáquez will no longer be able to avail himself of the amparo figure to evade criminal action, both from the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) and from the authorities. courts of Chihuahua.

On July 8, 2020, he was arrested in the city of Miami, Florida, United States by the US Marshals Service. His arrest coincided with the visit that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) made to his American counterpart Joe Biden at the White House in Washington, DC

The former governor of Chihuahua, César Duarte, was extradited to Mexico from the neighboring country to the north to be prosecuted by the crimes of criminal association and embezzlement for 96.6 million pesosboth with an aggravated penalty (modifying circumstance of the responsibility that determines an increase in the corresponding sentence for assuming a greater danger to the subject or a greater illegality of his conduct), according to Mexican authorities. The extradited Parralense arrived in the country on the afternoon of Thursday, June 2 last.

That chubby, chubby-cheeked and ruddy, northern cumbias dancer, always accompanied by prominent tafalario ladies, currently dances prison rock in the Cereso Aquiles Serdán. Soon he will learn new survival codes: extortion, threats, harassment of various kinds… The mouse got the cheese he was looking for. same luck run Roberto Borge Angulo and Javier Duarte de Ochoa, former governors that Enrique Peña Nieto publicly put as an example of renewal within the old PRI machinery.
