Mexico City's attorney general's office has issued arrest warrants for three IBM executives and 19 former city officials in connection with a $27 million computer system deal.
Samuel Ignacio del Villar, Attorney General, said: "The law calls for a bidding process and there was none. We concluded that there was sufficient evidence to issue arrest warrants."
Last year, IBM installed a network to streamline criminal investigations, but last month the system, dubbed APCOP, was canned because it was allegedly poorly designed and inefficient. IBM said the deal was fair and was simply waiting for clearance from the attorney general's office to fix some technical glitches.
