Mexican businessman and founder of the budget Interjet airlines Miguel Alemán Magnani, for whom the Federal Attorney General’s Office (FGR) issued an arrest warrant on Thursday, July 8, for alleged tax evasion, apparently left the country in January and has not returned since.

According to a statement from the National Migration Institute (INM), the son of former Mexican President Miguel Alemán Valdés (1946-1952) and son of former Veracruz Governor Miguel Alemán Velasco left the country on Jan. 31 from the International Airport of Toluca in the State of Mexico (Edoméx).

The INM statement did not reveal Alemán Magnani’s destination.

The institute has since issued an immigration alert for Alemán Magnani and the FGR is expected to ask Interpol to issue a red card for an international search.

Last week, a federal judge ordered the arrest of the businessman for an alleged tax fraud of 66.2 million pesos when he served as vice president of the now-grounded Interjet Airline.

The arrest warrant stated that Alemán Magnani omitted tax returns for the month of December 2018.
