MEXICO CITY—A high-ranking Mexican official at the state-run
national electric utility received a Ferrari, a luxury yacht and as much as
several million dollars in exchange for lucrative contracts for two U.S.
companies, U.S. federal prosecutors allege.
The official, Néstor Moreno, is the head of operations for Mexico's national
electric monopoly, the Federal Electricity Commission, called the CFE.
* $1.8 million yacht purchased in Chula Vista, Calif
* 2005 Ferrari Spider, costing $297,000, purchased from a Beverly Hills, Calif., dealer

* Payment of $164,791 in charges on Mr. Moreno's American Express card
Efforts to reach Mrs. Gomez Aguilar's lawyer were unsuccessful.
The whereabouts of her husband is unknown.
