KMPH News Investigation: Bribes and Extortion in Mexico
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
If you're planning a vacation to Mexico, there's a dirty little secret you need to know.
You might want to pray you don't get sick or hurt. Not because of the quality of medical care, but the tens of thousands of dollars in bribes you may have to pay to get treatment.
This happened to my in-laws.
This is a story very close to my heart. My mother and father-in-law found out about the bribery business the hard way.
They were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta.
My father-in-law needed emergency brain surgery, after he fell inside his room. Before he could get treatment, they had to come up with more than $50,000 in bribes.
