During the trial in the US against the former Secretary of Security of Mexico, the defense failed to try to link the president to organized crime.
The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, revealed this Thursday that he is evaluating a complaint for moral damages against Cesar de Castrothe lawyer for former Security Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna, who is currently facing trial in a US court for alleged ties to the Sinaloa Cartel.
“I am making a query, because I am seeing Is it possible for me to file a complaint? for moral damages against Garcia Luna’s lawyer and those who are responsible, in the US,” the president announced during his usual morning conference.
In this regard, he explained that he is analyzing whether the lawsuit would be presented as a person subject to law or as president of Mexico, and he announced that he plans to file it through a pro bono attorney.
“Since I don’t have the money to pay for a lawyer, I may be able to find a lawyer who charges a percentage after the trial is over,” he said.

Last Monday, de Castro tried to pressure Jesus ‘El Rey’ Zambada —the “star” witness summoned by the US Attorney’s Office— to declare that he had paid seven million dollars to a former secretary of the Government of Mexico City, when he It was directed by Lopez Obrador. The assumption, however, was denied by the drug trafficker.
Faced with the insinuations against him, Lopez Obrador justified the possible complaint for three reasons. The first because his honesty is in doubt. The second, because he is the president of Mexico and “you cannot govern a country without moral authority“. And the third, because the head of the national Executive cannot become a “hostage” of governments or foreign characters, he considered.
If he wins the lawsuit, Lopez Obrador revealed that the resources would go to families affected by the war against drug trafficking, initiated by former President Felipe Calderon (2006-2012).
