    The request has the support of Mexico's foreign ministry and attorney general, she said.
    Prosecutors had previously announced that Roemer, who has Mexican and Israeli dual nationality, was wanted by Interpol at the request of the Mexican government after a court issued an arrest warrant.
    The allegations against him, which number about 60 according to activists, began in February when the Mexican dancer Itzel Schnaas accused him of sexual assault.
    The 57-year-old former Mexican consul in San Francisco and goodwill ambassador to UNESCO "categorically" denied the first accusation.
    But he withdrew from social media in the face of mounting allegations that he had touched women inappropriately after meeting them on a work pretext.
