Just when the Government of Mexico carried out operations against gas stations and companies linked to the theft of gasoline, the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) decided to block the bank accounts of William Jorge Karam Kassab, owner of Hidrosina, the largest gasoline group in Mexico with more of 200 service stations.

Along with the blocking of his accounts, Jorge Karam was included in the Blocked Persons List, which aims to prevent and detect acts, omissions, or operations that could favor various crimes such as money laundering.

After the blockade, the businessman filed an appeal on Monday against the immobilization of his accounts before federal judge Francisco Gorka Migoni, who granted him this Wednesday the provisional suspension, so he can dispose of his money.

Although this was surprising, it is not the first time that Jorge Karam is in trouble. A few months ago he was involved in the money laundering network made by the former governor of Veracruz, Javier Duarte, who is now detained for diverting millions of pesos from the public treasury.
