MEXICO: Hoping to clear up past corruption

The Mexican government has secured the extradition of a key figure implicated in some of the major investigations into corruption by the previous administration led by Enrique Peña Nieto (2012-2018).

This would allow the incumbent government led by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to claim that progress is being made in the fight against corruption.
