The Veracruz state government filed a lawsuit February 19, 2018 against Inaki Negrete and others in Miami to recover “no less than $25,000,000” that Javier Duarte allegedly stole and converted to Florida real estate. Veracruz is represented in Miami by its recently-hired Houston attorneys and a Florida lawyer.

The defendants are:

  • Ace Realty Holdings LLC
  • Javier Duarte
  • Ana Maria Velasquez
  • Nexxos Realty LLC
  • Inaki Negrete
  • Vulcan Dynamic Realty Fund LP

The lawsuit seeks $25 million in damages plus an unspecified amount of “exemplary damages” that may be allowed as a punishment.

Veracruz is also seeking the defendants’ interests in 41 separate properties: a mansion Ace Realty Holdings LLC paid $7.7 million for, along with 40 homes in middle-class areas in and around Miami owned by Vulcan Dynamic Realty Fund LP.
