AMLO asks not to make summary trials or political lynchings of former presidents

Like every day, this Wednesday, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador led his usual morning conference with the media.

This time, the event took place in Querétaro, where the security meeting was also held.

At the beginning of the event, the president gave the floor to Governor Francisco Domínguez, who took the opportunity to distance himself from involvement in the Emilio Lozoya case, stating that it would be the only position he would make in this regard.

López Obrador endorsed what was indicated by the state president and asked the press not to question more about the case of the former director of Pemex related to Domínguez.


On the issue of Lozoya and questioned regarding the possible implications of the former president in this and other cases of corruption, the Mexican president pointed out that summary trials or political lynchings should not be carried out, assuring him that he has the record of the most complaints filed against former presidents by treason, but accused that these were shelved.

At a press conference at the facilities of Military Camp 17-A, the head of the federal Executive said that he presented these complaints against former presidents Carlos Salinas de Gortari, Ernesto Zedillo, Vicente Fox, Felipe Calderón and Enrique Peña Nieto.

“Do not make summary trials, there should be no political lynchings, you have to file a complaint with the competent authority and that authority with the evidence -for that is the rule of law- has to decide whether the person is guilty or not. the only”.

And he added: “You have to be very careful when you report. I have reported for many years, I have the record of having filed more complaints against former presidents, I filed a complaint against Salinas de Gortari, Zedillo, Fox, Calderón, Peña Nieto for treason. There is evidence that I went to the public prosecutor’s office and presented evidence, but their complaints were filed. They should be there, but always with evidence so as not to lose moral authority, credibility is lost. “
