translated from Spanish: Judge denies García Cabeza de Vaca unlocking bank accounts

A federal judge definitively denied the request of The Governor of Tamaulipas, Francisco Javier García Cabeza de Vaca to unlock his bank accounts, ordered by the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF).
The judge of the Seventh District in the state of Tamaulipas, Héctor Gastón Solórzano, said that the blockade imposed last May cannot be removed because it was done at the request of a foreign authority (United States).

The judge added that “allowing access to bank accounts would contravene public order provisions.”
The governor of Tamaulipas, Francisco Javier Cabeza de Vaca, is involved in possible money laundering operations for more than 100 million pesos with resources that would come, allegedly, from possible acts of corruption and even triangulations with money linked to drug trafficking.
At least 37 people and companies close to the governor whose bank accounts were frozen on 19 May are allegedly linked to these laundering operations and possible diversion of resources. Among those blocked are the president’s closest relatives.
