Panama has approved the extradition of Roberto Borge to Mexico, where he was formerly governor of the state Quintana Roo and is accused of several offences including corruption and involvement in organised crime. Among other things, he is said to have sold state-owned properties at 1% of their value.

Mr Borge was first arrested in June when he tried to board a flight from Panama to Paris, and lost his final appeal against extradition in Panama’s Supreme Court on 11 December.
