On this episode of Mexico This Week, you will hear about this past weekend’s arrest of the fugitive ex-governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte. Duarte was captured in Panajachel, a resort town in Guatemala. Seb tells us about the investigation which led to the arrest and the prospects for extradition. Plus, discussion centers around the resurgence of traditional maize in Mexico for the production of tortillas and chips, and the impact this may have on local farmers who were bankrupted by American subsidized corn.
