Panama is preparing to extradite former Mexican governor of Quintana Roo Roberto Borge to Mexico, after it approved a request for his extradition on 15 December. Mexico accuses Mr Borge of corruption, money laundering, and fraud, including the sale of state-owned land at a fraction of its value. Mr Borge was arrested on 4 June 2017, and has since unsuccessfully taken a challenge against his extradition to Panama’s Supreme Court.
