Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) senators and representatives have backed the Attorney General Office’s (PGR) investigation of Veracruz government Javier Duarte de Ochoa about the 69 properties that belong to Duarte or his associates.

The Senate Vice-President, PRI party member Arturo Zamora Jiménez, said that the the Senate sent a memo to the Supreme Court of the Nation, requesting a speedy resolution to the PGR investigation into activities by the governors of Veracruz, Chihuahua and Quintana Roo that go against the regulations of the National Anti-Corruption System.

Arturo Zamora said that the PRI memo to the National Supreme Court does not intend to start a “witch hunt” against the governors of these three states. Enrique Ochoa was recently named the new president of the PRI, and supported the memo. Zamora said, “The president of the party, when he was sworn in, said very clearly in his speech: we have to take on corruption. The fight against corruption is serious and we should promote transparency and accountability. The president of the party has taken an important step by seeking this memo.”

The Vice-Coordinator of the PRI in the Chamber of Deputies, Jorge Carlos Ramírez Marín, gave his support to the PGR investigation. “Of course we support the PGR investigation, because it is what’s needed. Not declarations or political gestures, but for the responsible authority to take action.”

Marín said that Duarte is in a “delicate situation” due to the charges against him.
