The Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in the senate asked  (INE) and the Attorney General’s Office (PGR), to investigate an alleged diversion of resources from the Mexican Union of Electrical Workers (SME) to fund political and proselytizing activities of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, president of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena).

The senators from the PRI sought to remind that there exist criminal complaints presented by liquidated and retired employees from the extinct Luz y Fuerza del Centro (Central Light and Power), pointing to a supposed diversion of 122 million pesos from the SME to finance the structure of Morena and the protest on Reforma avenue that López Obrador carried out in 2006.

The representatives from the PRI asked the INE that, within its attributions, it investigate the complaints from the liquidated and retired workers from Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) on the alleged diversion of 56 million pesos by the SME from 2006 on, used to fund various political activities of López Obrador.

They also called upon the PGR to investigate complaints against SME secretary general Martín Esparza López, for alleged crimes of illicit enrichment and misappropriation of funds.

Finally, the PRI representatives outlined that in 2013 the PGR opened the preliminary investigation  PGR/DDF/SPE-XXIV/4005/2013-07 against Esparza López for these alleged crimes.
