    Mexico’s agency for curbing money laundering said Friday the governor of the northern border state of Tamaulipas owns a large number of luxury properties that it says don’t match the income from his government jobs over the last 20 years.

    The Financial Intelligence Unit said in a report to Congress that Gov. Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca earned about $ 2 million in wages and $ 1 million in other income since 2000, but acquired properties worth many times that. It also mentioned properties owned by the governor or his relatives in Texas.

    The agency also said front companies used by the Sinaloa drug cartel had passed money through the same company that เกมยิงปลา วิธีเล่น assisted in purchasing one of Garcia Cabeza de Vaca’s luxury apartments. But the agency did not say it has any direct evidence of links between the governor and the cartel.

    In a video, the governor said the agency used “data and speculations that are notoriously false” in drawing up its report. “None of the homes that were shown in the report belong to me,” he said.

    Garcia Cabeza de Vaca also said, “I have no links to organized crime.”

    In February, the Attorney General’s Office filed a request to Congress to remove the governor’s immunity from prosecution, equivalent to a kind of impeachment proceeding. The office accuses Garcia Cabeza De Vaca of organized crime, money laundering and tax evasion.
