SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Federal agents on Wednesday arrested an accountant in a corruption investigation involving Puerto Rico’s former education secretary.

FBI spokeswoman Limary Cruz identified the man as Aníbal Jover, who once was president of Puerto Rico’s Association of Certified Public Accountants. Cruz told The Associated Press that there’s a gag order in the case and that she could not provide further details.

Jover is the seventh person arrested in a case in which authorities say contracts were fraudulently obtained from Puerto Rico’s Department of Education and its Health Insurance Administration.

He pleaded not guilty and was being held on a $250,000 bond.
