Parents of children with cancer report drug theft to the FGR

Parents of children with cancer went to the headquarters of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) to denounce the theft of cancer drugs reported last Friday.

They considered that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has not complied with its obligation to guarantee the supply of medicines for cancer patients and has not made transparent the evidence of the alleged theft reported by the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris).

Therefore, they pointed out that the President of Mexico, the Secretary of Health, Jorge Alcocer and the head of the Cofepris, José Alonso Novelo could incur in the crimes of abuse of authority and coalition of public servants.

Andrea Rocha, lawyer for the complaining parents, explained that this is because So far, the acquisition of the drugs or how the theft occurred has not been proven, which is why they consider that the FGR should investigate and give access to the investigation folder that it initiates on the case.

They also pointed to the pharmaceutical company Novag, from which a batch of 37,956 oncological drugs was allegedly stolen, so that it can be investigated for its probable responsibility in the disappearance of the drugs. Well, one of the possibilities is that it is a self-theft.

“There is no evidence that the drug was purchased and we question how it is possible that such a large batch is stolen from a company and it seems that they did not realizeThat is why we refer that it could have been a self-theft, “he said.

The lawyer went to the FGR accompanied by the president of the PRD, Jesús Zambrano, who held the federal government responsible for the shortage of medicines and for the possible omissions that allowed their theft.



AMLO says he does not know if stolen cancer medicine was insured

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) assured that there are already witnesses to the theft of cancer drugs, which occurred last week in Mexico City, and when questioned if the more than 37 thousand medicines were insured, he acknowledged that he did not know it.

In his morning press conference, the President stated that to carry out this theft trailers were used And thanks to the progress in the investigation, he believes that there will be results soon.

“I can tell you that It was hard for us to get it, they were brought from Argentina and the medicines were stolen (…) We already have witnesses, there were trailers, we have witnesses and the investigation is being carried out by the government of Mexico City. I believe that soon we will have the results, “he said.

The chief executive reiterated that the federal government has had to face “a kind of blockade” by the “mafia” that had monopolized the sale of these cancer drugs.

In addition, López Obrador He assured that there was influence and corruption on the part of the companies that sold the medicines.

“I told you yesterday that there has been a kind of blockade, it has cost us a lot. There is a shortage of these drugs in the world, but we have also had problems, because they were drugs controlled by those who sold to the government, at the time that They are no longer bought because they monopolized all the purchase of medicines, there was influence and corruption.

“Then we began to have difficulties, because it is a mafia,” he said.



Disappeared students in Mexico: investigation becomes a top priority

The new president is investigating the federal police and the military. That gives hope. But there are still over 73,000 people missing.

Angry protest: The disappearance of the 43 students has been unsolved for six years Photo: dpa

Shortly after the disappearance of 43 Mexican students six years ago, their relatives demanded that the crime be investigated against federal police officers and the military. Too much argued against the fact that the attack on the young men at Ayotzinapa Teachers University six years ago was only carried out by local politicians, police officers and criminals. An international commission of experts founded for the case demanded access to the military barracks. Vain.

The fact that arrest warrants have now been issued against soldiers and federal officials shows how unscrupulous the then government of President Enrique Peña Nieto and his prosecutors lied. Just a few months after the fact, they presented a “historical truth” for which there was no suitable evidence. They blocked any attempt to clarify the background. They treated relatives with cynical arrogance and ignorance.

Wonder why. Why did Peña Nieto and his henchmen try with all their might to prevent the truth from coming out? To this day it is unclear what is behind the attack. There is some evidence that the students got in the way of a heroin shipment. Consequently, the investigators wanted to prevent the extent of the cooperation between federal forces and the drug mafia from coming to light. This is about structures in which high-ranking politicians and officials are involved. The current discussion about whether former presidents such as Peña Nieto should be prosecuted for their corrupt dealings indicates the criminal energy of these people.

Peña Nieto’s successor Andrés Manuel López Obrador has declared war on these corrupt machinations. And he has made the Aotzinapa case a top priority. Relatives confirm that he is actually acting accordingly. That’s a good thing, but it shouldn’t hide the fact that over 73,000 people have disappeared in Mexico. It is not without good reason that their mothers, fathers and sisters fear that they will be forgotten next to the sensational case of the 43 kidnapped students.


Missing students Mexico: arrest warrants against soldiers

SSix years after the alleged murder of 43 students, the Mexican judiciary has issued arrest warrants for soldiers allegedly involved in the disappearance of the young people. Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced the court order to arrest the military on Saturday when a report on the state of the investigation was presented. Parents of the students also took part, who had suspected that soldiers were involved for years.

Exactly six years ago, on the night of September 26-27, 2014, near the city of Iguala in the state of Guerrero, the 43 students of a left-wing teachers’ seminar in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, disappeared when they wanted to travel to a demonstration in the capital Mexico City .

Doubts about the official version

According to the Mexican judiciary, the group was abducted by corrupt police officers and extradited to the Guerreros Unidos drug gang. Gang members are said to have mistaken them for members of a warring cartel, murdered them in a garbage dump and burned them.

The students’ families and independent experts from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights questioned the official results of the investigation. The government of then President Enrique Peña Nieto was criticized internationally for the slow processing of the case.

New investigations

The controversy surrounding the case prompted his successor, López Obrador, to found a truth commission that was supposed to “start from scratch” with the investigation. Truth Commission President Alejandro Encinas said Saturday that the Defense Ministry has now released information on a military unit stationed in the region six years ago.

“When will you arrest the soldiers?” Asked a spokeswoman for the victims’ families, María Martínez Zeferino. “We had hoped for something different today. It’s been six years and we have nothing. “


Ask AMLO that Afores give some savings

Faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) said that Your Government is studying the possibility that workers have access to a percentage of their savings from the Retirement Fund Administrators (Afore).

“We are going to analyze it; An initiative that has to do with the Afores must already be in the Senate, and this possibility must be reviewed so that it is established in the Law ”.

The President recalled that last July, with the president of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE), Carlos Salazar, the announcement was made to reform the pension system.

“This because in the period neoliberal A reform was made in 1997 against the workers, to the extent that if they retire at the end of 2027, not even 50% of their salary as a pension. I don’t know how some defend these governments, look at the size of the injustice, the worker saves and when he retires he will receive 30% or 40%.

Fortunately, this damage is being repaired and, at the initiative of the employers who are going to increase their participation, so that at least the worker who retires receives his full salary ”.

He pointed out that it will be guaranteed that the commissions charged by the Afores will go down.

“The initiative that I am sending is to standardize the collection of Afores commissions to what is charged, on average, in the world. Colombia, Chile and the United States, and I want this to be by law, because this way there will be more savings ”.


From blind loyalty to complicit blindness

Loyalty in a political project is one of the most difficult things to define. It is perfectly understood that a leader asks his collaborators to share the vision of the country or the state behind his exercise of government; it is not only plausible but desirable. The problem is to define that subtle border between loyalty and complicity, the moment in which the blind obedience requested by the president turns into complicit blindness, closing one’s eyes to something that may be incorrect, illegal or simply considered by an official as not correct ethically.

What Jaime Cárdenas says with all elegance in his resignation letter is not that he does not agree with the project of the López Obrador government, but that he was asked to do illegal things or with incorrect procedures. The public administration is not for everyone, the president is right in that, because unlike ordinary mortals, those who work in government can only do what the law expressly allows them, everything else implies a fault. Cárdenas left because he was asked to make decisions not contemplated in the law that would have implied that he, as a public official, incurred in administrative offenses if not in the commission of crimes.

There is no better loyalty than that of someone who anticipates problems, but that loyalty is not blind, on the contrary, it is uncomfortable and revealing.

When the government project is crossed every day by the occurrence of the moment, loyalty is no longer the vision of a group headed by the president – a vision that would allow the public official to establish a work route – but a submission. What they asked Jaime Cárdenas was an urgent action and outside the law to hide the failure of the plane raffle. His disloyalty was not having lent himself to the game and that cost him public revulsion, being accused by urbi et orbi of being disloyal, lacking in commitment and even lazy.

Little by little the cob is shelled in the government and the dissonant and discordant voices are getting off the ship. The captain does not want officers who look far, anticipate storms or propose adjustments in the course, none who question his decisions or have their own opinion regarding the handling of the ship, he only wants obedient sailors, who carry out the orders and sing praises.

There is no better loyalty than that of someone who anticipates problems, but that loyalty is not blind, on the contrary, it is uncomfortable and revealing. There is no worse help than that of the blind accomplice, the one who prefers not to see so as not to disturb the tlatoani. The most convinced public officials can close their eyes and get carried away, have blind faith in their leader and believe from the bottom of their soul that the president knows better than anyone what the people want and what Mexico needs. What they cannot do is close their eyes to what is illegal because future problems will not be for the president, they will be for the obedient official.
