The General Prosecutor of the Republic (FGR) filed before the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) a constitutional controversy against the resolution of the Electoral Court of the Judicial Power of the Federation (TEPJF) that ordered it to deliver to the National Electoral Institute (INE) information on the investigation it initiated against Pío López Obrador, David Leon Romero Y Brunette.

The matter was registered in constitutional controversy 6/2022, and in which an act of suspension is requested to prevent the delivery of the aforementioned information.

On December 22, the plenary session of the Electoral Court of the Judicial Power of the Federation (TEPJF) ordered the Special Prosecutor for Electoral Crimes (Fede) of the FGR, deliver to OTHER the file of the investigation folder due to the appearance of a video where Pío López Obrador, brother of the President of the Republic, was observed receiving in 2015 bundles of money from David Leon, former national coordinator of Civil Protection.

In this sense, by majority vote of the magistrates, the plenary session of the Superior Chamber of the TEPJF declared the claim of the INE to order the agent of the Public Ministry of the Federation to deliver said documentation.

The Court determined that the Head of the Technical Inspection Unit (UTF) del OTHER requested a simple copy of an investigation folder, and validated that the information is necessary for the substantiation of various inspection procedures.

Given the requests, the General Director of Legal Affairs and the Agent of the Public Ministry of the Federation of the Fede, had refused to grant a copy of the aforementioned documentation, for which the Executive Secretary of the General Council of the OTHER promoted two electoral judgments.

It should be noted that already last October, the TEPJF had denied the request Pio Lopez Obrador for the National Electoral Institute to conclude the investigation against him, for which he validated that the electoral body continue the investigations.

Last year, a media outlet released a video in which it was observed Pio Lopez Obrador receive bundles of money in an envelope from David Leon. The event allegedly occurred in 2015 when federal political campaigns were underway. Opposition parties to Morena filed a complaint with the INE, for which the Supervisory Commission of the national electoral body initiated an investigation.

On Thursday, October 7, 2021, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador ruled that his brother, Pío López Obrador, be investigated by the competent authorities and, if there are elements, be punished.

“What happened to my brother has already become very clear that I do not protect anyone. I came here to lead a transformation, to do it with all the people, that’s why millions of Mexicans gave me their trust and I’m not going to betray them. If my brother is responsible, let him be punished. I do not establish relationships of complicity with anyone, nor with members of my family, I no longer belong to myself, “he said that day.
