Alejandro del Valle, Interjet main shareholder, arrested for fraud

Alejandro del Valle, who was president, shareholder of 90% of Interjet shares and partner of Miguel Alemán Magnani, was arrested this Thursday morning at the Club de Industriales, in Polanco, Mexico City.

The Capital Investigation Police would have captured the businessman for an alleged fraud of 30 million dollars (600 million pesos), derived from the financing that Carlos Cabal Peniche received from Crédito Real to acquire Grupo Radiópolis, in addition to various alleged omissions of the debt to various federal authorities.

During an interview granted on August 17 for a national media, the lawyer of Miguel Alemán Magnani pointed out that it is Alejandro Del Valle’s responsibility to pay the debt that Interjet has with the Tax Administration Service (SAT), since during a meeting held in June 2020 the Alemán family agreed to hand over 90% of the shares of the Mexican airline to Del Valle.

To generate this agreement, Alejandro Del Valle would have to pay 4,300 million pesos that were needed to settle the liabilities with the SAT.

Remember that On July 8, a federal judge issued an arrest warrant for Miguel Alemán Magnani, vice president of Interjet, to the Attorney General’s Office (FGR). In this he is accused of the crime of tax fraud of 66 million 285,000 pesos.

Interjet, one of the four main Mexican airlines, announced in December 2020 the change of president amid five consecutive days of canceled flights for the non-payment of fuel and debts with the Treasury.

The General Assembly of Shareholders appointed businessman Alejandro del Valle as Administration Counsel President, thus displacing the family of former President Miguel Alemán (1946-1952), founder of the airline.

“Mr. Alejandro del Valle, since last July, already served as executive president of the company. Mr. Miguel Alemán Velasco and Mr. Miguel Alemán Magnani will have, as of this date, honorary positions as founders of Interjet”, The company specified in a statement.
