President of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) Enrique Ochoa Reza confirmed that the National Commission on Party Justice will take place next Monday, which could lead to the governors of Veracruz, Quintana Roo, Chihuahua and Nuevo León being suspended from the PRI.

With Fernando Elías Calles heading the team, the investigative body will analyze the case of Veracruz Governor Javier Duarte de Ochoa, who has been charged with corruption.

“As president of the PRI, two months ago I assured that priistas would be the first in line to guarantee transparency and accountability of the governors of our party,” said Ochoa Reza. “And this is how we are acting inside of the PRI, as responsible actors, following the investigations of the Mexican state to offer citizens responses to their demands against corruption and impunity.”

Ochoa Reza added that the PRI will uphold the necessary processes for just proceedings.

Last July, National Advisor of the PRI Armando Barajas requested the removal of Javier Duarte for “suspected fraud.”

As an example he cited the investigation that the Tax Administration Service (SAT) was conducting regarding supposed government acquisition of “ghost” companies. Previously, 26 investigations had been initiated by the Federal Public Prosecutor due to suspicions from the Federal Auditing Agency.

In agreement with Ochoa Reza, Barajas added that they will continue investigating with punctuality the “other cases” that were pointed out by various institutions of the Mexican goverment. These include Quintana Roo Governor Roberto Borge and Chihuahua Governor César Duarte, in addition to ex-governor of Nuevo León Rodrigo Medina.
