Karime Macías in secret camera footage filmed in London

The wife of disgraced former Veracruz governor Javier Duarte has been filmed living the high life in London as she too is investigated for embezzlement.

Karim Macías is now the subject of an Interpol red notice after current Veracruz governor Miguel Ángel Lunes Linares issued an arrest warrant for her.

Macías’s husband Javier Duarte is in custody in Mexico facing accusations he and his associates looted $3.2 billion US from the state which he ran between 2010 and 2016.

She herself is accused of embezzling 112 million pesos of public funds during that period – around $5.65 million at today’s exchange rate.

It does not seem Macías will be hard to find. In a press conference yesterday (May 29), Linares played an eight-minute video to reporters appearing to show her going about a life of luxury in Belgravia in West London.
