On August 11th, the former director of PEMEX, Emilio Lozoya, filed a formal complaint in which he declared that the previous government of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party), specifically former President, Enrique Peña Nieto, and former Secretary of the Treasury, Luis Videgaray, ordered the delivery of bribes.

In a video aimed at the public, the prosecutor Alejandro Gertz published the complaint that was presented in the framework of the investigations in the Odebrecht case, a company that would have injected resources into the PRI campaign and for which Lozoya faces accusations of corruption.

The Prosecutor reported that Emilio Lozoya pointed out that there were several series of bribes and vote buying during the 2012 electoral campaign and the structural reforms in 2013 and 2014 for an amount that exceeds hundreds of millions of pesos. He also declared that it was the former President (Enrique Peña Nieto) and his secretary of the Treasury (Luis Videgaray) who ordered that this money be delivered to the indicated persons.

“Regarding these statements that he makes, he has indicated four witnesses, has delivered receipts and a video. As of this moment, the Attorney General’s Office has opened the corresponding investigation file and we are going to begin to carry out all the procedures ”, the Prosecutor Gertz announced.

The current President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said during the morning of August 12th: “What should be clear is that what Mr. Lozoya presents implies that they be called to appear, that the two former Presidents, among other public servants, declare, that is, former Presidents Calderon, Peña, the deputy mentioned, the senators, all those named, the one who was Secretary of the Treasury, Videgaray, all have to declare.”
