MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican police have arrested a former state prosecutor in the forced disappearance of over a dozen people.
The arrest of former Veracruz state prosecutor Luis Angel Bravo is the latest in a string of arrests targeting the top law enforcement officials under former Gov. Javier Duarte.
Duarte was governor from 2010 to 2016 and is himself in jail on corruption charges.
Veracruz Gov. Miguel Angel Yunes said Monday that Bravo helped cover up and hide the bodies of about a dozen people. Yunes called it “a tale of terror.”
