In a statement, the Ministry of Welfare highlighted that its owner explained that with the management of Fonden there was corruption, consisting of money leakage, millionaire deviations and electoral use of resources, without making direct accusations.

The head of the main social programs of the Government of Mexico added that, by presidential instructions, the resources to support the victims of Tabasco were given under other conditions.

Promptly, without intermediaries, honestly, without allowing anyone to try to profit from the needs of the people and all with the best transparency that exists, which is to act in front of the eyes of the people, “said the official.

May Rodríguez added that the fact that Fonden does not exist does not imply that there are no resources to attend to emergencies.

What disappears is corruption, negligence, the political use of the misfortune of others ”, he asserted.
