The Superior Audit Office is working on a report on corruption

We’ve been told that the Superior Audit Office returns to work tomorrow and that its employees will have a lot of work to do so everything is ready to present a report in October; this is the first report regarding President López Obrador’s administration. We’ve been reminded that the report should have been presented in the lower chamber last week but the audit office wasn’t able to complete the job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we’ve been told that the government department is facing another issue: other government departments have provided the necessary documents by arguing they are under lockdown. As we previously said, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the report on corruption registered during this administration until October.

Last Thursday, Morena announced a call to elect its new leader in August. Now, contender Alejandro Rojas Díaz Durán asked the electoral tribunal to contest the call for the internal election. Therefore, it seems like Yeidckol Polevnsky wasn’t the reason behind division inside the party. We’ll see if the ruling party put up a united front during the 2021 elections.

We’ve been told that the issue is not inside the building, but the fact that lawmakers and senators will come from all over the country. Many other workers would also have to attend, even when the COVID-19 pandemic is not over.

Santiago Nieto promised to read the Bible

We’ve been told that Santiago Nieto, the head of the Financial Intelligence Unit, is working from home; however, it has nothing to do with corruption or money laundering. Last week, Nieto Castillo was invested in a virtual meeting with religious leaders, human trafficking activists, and singer Yuri. By the end of the meeting, Santiago Nieto promised to read the Bible they gifted him.
