a federal judge issued an opening order for the trial against the former director of Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Emilio Lozoya Austin, for the Odebrecht case. It will be a trial court that, in the coming days, announces the date on which the process will begin.

According to what was announced, the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) requested 46 years in prison for the former official, in addition to appealing that some evidence against the former member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) that they considered “key” to the process have been dismissed.

This is based on the fact that, during the days of the appearance, Lozoya’s legal defense, headed by the lawyer Miguel Ontiveros, asked to cancel 48 of the 67 data and evidence presented by the Prosecutor’s Office. Of the total, 21 were excluded and classified as illegal12 were only partially discarded and 12 were admitted.

On the other hand, the FGR had requested that 28 of the 38 tests presented by the former official be discarded, but the control judge Gerardo Alarcón López rejected this and all requests from the agency, according to the first reports.

After eight hours of hearing, it was indicated that the acts that would accuse the official for his alleged actions in the crimes of bribery, criminal association and use of resources of illegal origin will be investigated. It also transpired that for his mother Gilda Margarita Austin they have requested 21 years and three months.
