After 23 hours of hearing, a judge of Control of the North Prison determined not to link the lawyer, Juan Collado Mocelo, to the trial for the crime of tax fraud for 36 million pesos.

For the judge, Juan Carlos Ramírez Benítez, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) did not provide sufficient evidence to demonstrate that Collado Mocelo, a prisoner in the North Prison, evaded the payment of income tax.

Collado’s lawyer, Javier López García, affirmed that they proved that the amounts and transfers made for said amount were not taxable.

At an imputation hearing, held on August 30, Juan Collado’s lawyer requested the duplication of the term to define the legal situation of his client.

The foregoing, to review your client’s accounting and verify if there was any omission in the payment of Income Tax.

There are charges against Collado Mocelo for the crimes of money laundering, organized crime and fraud.

He has been held in the North Prison since July 9, 2019.
