Barbara Botelo, former mayor of León, Guanajuato, was arrested on Thursday for alleged embezzlement for about 1,577,600 pesos.
The apprehension was recorded at his home located at the Club de Golf La Hacienda, around 06:00 hours, according to the newspaper AM.
In June 2018, Botel was disabled for a period of five years to occupy public offices at municipal level for allegedly embezzling public resources.
For the hiring of massages, the United Commissions of government and comptroller determined that the municipality was caused a patrimonial damage by 9503 pesos.
In October 2017, the government of Miguel Márquez Márquez requested the Chamber of Deputies to initiate a trial of disjurisdiction, which did not proceed, against the then Deputy Federal PRI.
The objective was to continue with the preliminary investigation 101/2015 for the alleged crime of embezzlement.
The criminal complaint derived from an investigation of the Superior audit of the state of Guanajuato, which detected that during 2013 and 2014 the former Mayora and other public servants signed six contracts of service delivery with companies, which did not make any work.
It is estimated that the damage to the Treasury for these contracts is about 1,577,600 pesos.
