The Secretariat of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) specified that among the investigations that the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) against the health sector in the past administration, they are not against former health secretary José Narro.
Through a Twitter post, the SHCP specified that unlike the other cases, which were opened to investigate specific individuals, the FIU is not investigating Narro Robles, former head of the Ministry of Health (SSa) and former rector of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
“The Treasury, through the FIU and its owner Santiago Nieto Castillo, investigates alleged cases of corruption in the health system during the previous administration. These investigations do not include José Narro Robles, former rector of UNAM“Reads in the publication of the federal secretariat.
Santiago Nieto, head of the FIU, said that the agency he directs investigates an alleged tax fraud in the SSa during the administration of Enrique Peña Nieto in which they highlight 83,000 million pesos payments to pharmaceutical companies.
“We have found pharmaceutical companies that received payments from the Mexican government of 83,000 million pesos and that present tax losses for 416 million, which we think is a tax fraud scheme, “said the director of the unit dependent on the SHCP on April 22.
During a morning press conference held at the National Palace, Nieto Castillo explained that the UIF investigates a scheme of “illegal hiring”, particularly in the now defunct Seguro Popular.
This adds to the investigations against Rosario Robles, former Secretary of Social Development (Sedesol) and Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu), against the former director of Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Emilio Lozoya and the former owner of Sedesol, Luis Miranda, which remain open and will continue in accordance with the law.
“In fact, what we have done is maintain a series of investigations into cases of high corruption in the previous administration. Complaints have been filed as has been made public, four about Mr. Lozoya, one related to Mrs. Rosario Robles, against OHL in general, “he explained during the” morning. “
Regarding the health sector, the head of the unit had already reported since Monday, April 6, that cases of alleged ant robbery of medical material inside warehouses of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) and Institute of Security and Social Services for State Workers (ISSSTE), and to manufacturers of supplies that increased the costs of medical protection supplies.
“We have an ant theft problem, Zoé Robledo has made it known to us and investigations have been carried out for cases in which the IMSS or ISSSTE wineries themselves begin to carry material, this is something that must obviously be shared because what we need at the moment is a higher level of solidarity in society and to avoid this type of practice, ”he declared.
It is worth mentioning that the appendix of the Treasury will continue investigating Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, despite his recent death, as the investigations around him point to a circle of closed people related to OHL. “And there is an investigation into Luis Miranda related to alleged acts of corruption. We are going to continue with this process in order to present it to the corresponding instances. “
The arrests, seizures and freezing of accounts are the product of a joint work and coordinated with other agencies such as the Ministry of Public Function (SFP), directed by Irma Eréndira Sandoval and the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) directed by Alejandro Gertz Manero. Likewise, Nieto Castillo said that the Tax Administration Service (SAT) He gave them a view of two cases, which they are already investigating to find out if there is money laundering. “We need to review if there are money laundering operations, file the complaints and, where appropriate, freeze the accounts, we are in that process,” he said, but cannot provide more details.
