Methodology is a lie: AMLO once again defends his son Andy for alleged acts of corruption

In a recent morning conference, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador came to the defense of his son, Andrés Manuel López Beltrán, known as Andy, amid allegations of corruption against him.

Mexican president assured that there is no evidence to prove his son’s participation in improper acts, qualifying the methodology used by the journalists behind the accusations as a lie.

The report in question was presented by journalist Carlos Loret de Mola, who stated that López Beltrán had obtained millionaire contracts together with some friends. According to the investigation, it is estimated that they would have received more than 100 million pesos through agreements with Mexican companies, including the National Water Commission (Conagua) and the Health Institute for Welfare (Insabi) in Quintana Roo.

AMLO’s defense against the accusations

In the face of these accusations, López Obrador vehemently defended his son, arguing that there is no evidence to support the accusations against him. During the morning conference, the president declared that the methodology used by the journalists is false, since they have not presented any concrete evidence.

“The methodology is simply that it is a lie, because they have not shown any evidence,” stated López Obrador. In addition, the president pointed out that journalist Carlos Loret de Mola is against him and affirmed that he has proof that he is indeed corrupt.

On repeated occasions, López Obrador has insisted that he and his family have nothing to hide and that there is no complicity with anyone. On this occasion, he reiterated his request to Loret de Mola to reveal his salary and assets, questioning the journalist’s transparency.

Relevant details of the investigation

Report presented by Carlos Loret de Mola states that Andrés Manuel López Beltrán would have woven a network of corruption together with some of his friends. These millionaire contracts would have been obtained through agreements with Mexican companies, among them, the aforementioned Conagua and Insabi in Quintana Roo.

One of the businessmen linked to this corruption network is Jorge Amílcar Olán Aparicio, who allegedly received resources from Insabi in Quintana Roo. According to the report, López Beltrán allegedly facilitated Olán to obtain millionaire contracts with the Mexican government.

In addition, the transparency of the bidding processes and allocation of public resources in the health sector has been called into question, as it is suspected that there was a preferential awarding of contracts due to the relationship between López Beltrán and government officials.

Importance of Vigilance and Accountability

This case highlights the importance of oversight and accountability in public administration. It is essential to ensure transparency in the processes of contracting and allocation of public resources, especially in the health sector, where the management of funds is crucial to address the challenges of the pandemic and meet the demands of the population.

The complaint and investigations related to this corruption scandal continue to unfold, and it is expected that administrative or legal action will be taken if the allegations are confirmed. It is essential that thorough investigations be conducted and appropriate sanctions applied if wrongdoing is proven.
