Mexico issues arrest warrant for former owner of Mexicana Airlines

MEXICO CITY - An official says Mexico's Attorney General's Office has issued an arrest warrant for the former owner of defunct Mexicana Airlines on charges of misuse of funds.

The official says the office has asked Interpol for help locating Gaston Azcarraga, who is accused of operating with illegal proceeds and is believed to be in the United States.

The official was not authorized to speak by name.

It was not clear when the warrant was issued. The official said Azcarraga is accused of using investor funds without permission but did not provide more details.

Mexicana Airlines, once the country's main commercial airline, ceased to operate in 2010 after filing for bankruptcy. Attempts to restart the airline since then have failed.
