Friday, 16 August 2019 11:38 PM

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican federal prosecutors said Friday that authorities in Argentina acting at Mexico's request have detained businessman Carlos Ahumada, who was tied to political scandals a decade ago and is sought on tax evasion charges.

The prosecutors' office alleged that Ahumada failed to pay income taxes totaling about $75,000 at today's exchange rate. It said the charges date back to 2016 and were re-opened by the current administration.

Ahumada was caught on video in 2004 handing large amounts of cash to people linked to Mexico's current president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office Dec. 1.
