Beatriz Pagés Rebollar, secretary of culture of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), firmly denied that there was a preferential treatment for former Coahuila Gov. Humberto Moreira and his case.
There was no intervention from the PRI regarding Moreira’s case, who was being investigated in Spain for money laundering and connections to organized crime, she added.
“The decision of the Spanish judge was very clear. There isn’t any evidence against Moreira and there was no reason for him to be arrested,” said Pagés Rebollar.
She added that there is a clear politicization of the case, as Moreira has been persecuted and signaled out by the media for years.
