Mexico City, Mexico — The Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) has released a notice of its intentions to follow through with a criminal investigation against Enrique P.
In their press release, the federal agency reported that “based on complaints filed by treasury authorities, an investigation for money laundering and illegal international transfers is being put together, all of which requires expert tax and treasury opinions which have already been requested, while various essential evidence is obtained to the prosecution of the case.”
The FGR says they are developing investigation procedures for various federal crimes against Enrique “P”, the first of which includes various complaints in which the company OHL is involved, both in crimes of an electoral nature, as well as patrimonial.
They are also investigating Enrique P for illicit enrichment, in which tax and property reports are being released through the corresponding institutions and specialized experts in the matter.
“As procedural results are obtained, in which the public versions authorized by law can be given, this will be done immediately,” they said.
The announcement by the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) regarding the investigations it undertook against former President Enrique Peña Nieto, takes place just one year after the popular consultation promoted by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador with which it was sought to put former presidents on trial.
On Tuesday morning, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador made mention of the new investigation. “I don’t think the FGR has any problem reporting how many complaints there are against former presidents and the status of these complaints,” he said.
Hours later, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), headed by Alejandro Gertz Manero, reported the three investigations against former President Enrique Peña Nieto for electoral crimes, property crimes, money laundering and illicit enrichment related to various cases.
