Extortion Attempt on Ex-Minister in Chetumal

A report in the Por Esto, a Mexican news outlet, says that an ex-minister of government was threatened with extortion and Mexican police stepped in to prevent the crime. The unnamed politician was reportedly staying at the Fiesta Inn in neighbouring Chetumal where he received calls at about two on Monday morning demanding a large sum of money. The ex-government official, however, promptly reported the matter to police officials who headed over to the hotel, surrounded it while others made direct contact with the would-be victim who they placed under protection. The matter is under investigation.
