PGR Arrests Elba Esther Gordillo

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 |

Elba Esther Gordillo
 
The Attorney General’s Office, Jesus Murillo Karam, said that the leader of the SNTE (Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación) (National Education Workers' Union) Elba Esther Gordillo, was arrested for allegedly misappropriating and diverging funds from the SNTE to personal bank accounts.

Murillo Karam reported that Elba Esther is now detained at the airport in Toluca located in the State of Mexico.

At a press conference, Murillo Karam said that the SHCP (Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público) (Mexico's Secretariat of Finance and Public Credit), filed a formal complaint with the PGR (Attorney General) when they detected an irregular operation totaling around 2 billion pesos ($156 million) in two accounts of the SNTE.

The official explained that from 2008 to 2012 there were funds that were diverted from SNTE worker’s accounts to mainly three individual accounts in foreign banks.  This money, according to Murillo Karam, was subsequently withdrawn by these people in foreign banks through checks and cash transfers.

The two accounts of the SNTE from where the money was withdrawn from had around $156 million and also had an output to 4 people in particular and a corporation— a real estate company.

The deviations of resources from the SNTE include: shopping malls, payments to cosmetic surgery clinics, art galleries, and buying property abroad.  He also goes on to say that Gordillo allegedly used the funds to pay for her plastic surgery, her credit card bill from Neiman Marcus, the purchase of a private airplane, and to buy a house in San Diego valued at around $1.7 million dollars which she claims belongs to her mother and other family members.
Alfredo Castillo Cervantes

We will have to analyze the other accounts of the SNTE, said the attorney for the Regional Control (Control Regional, Procedimientos Penales y Amparo de la PGR), Alfredo Castillo.

It could be true what you're saying but let me tell you something the fact that the mexican government seems to be doing something about her and also carlos slim is not because they want to do it it is because the OCDE is putting pressure on mexican government to do it the OCDE want mexico to have an education reform and this bich is a big obstacle to do it, they want mexico to brake the telecomunications monopoly , they want mexico to have a fiscal reform tax everybody and everything in mexico, they want mexico to have a energy reform privitize pemex and cfe well that's about it

Chivis- You always make the the darkest funny comments. Love it. 156 million and she couldn't find a better plastic surgeon? I'd demand my money back. What a b**ch. As if México does not have enough problems! We all know there's a special place in Hell for people like her. Thank God they got her. And,thanks for the story and laugh. Texas Grandma. Peace to all innocents.

Jajajaja! I love it when I can predict a Chivis remark. I thought you'd mention something about her little butchered eye problem. Money didn't buy the best plastic surgeon there. Or he did it on purpose. Disgusting, dishonest, greedy disgrace to humanity. No one should be that blatantly criminal without facing unbearably painful and long lasting consequences.

Anonymous said...

$156MM and NO ONE person or institution not even Banks ever raised a red flag.

EPN administration should show her and her accomplices in jail uniforms in front of live cameras.

Its hard to believe people have no conscience, in this case stealing from Mexican children.

Calderon made it to the Pinos because of her and that wicked and corrupt teachers union she leads. She has been a very powerful and ruthless bitch. More is on the way...including those psychopaths that call themselves narcos will come down.

Elba, got robbed by Her Plastic Surgeon..! If she Paid for that mess of a face then her plastic surgeon should be taken outside and placed against the nearest wall and shot like a common criminal. My God is she homely. Typical Mexican Government corruption, politicions stealing millions while the common man woman and children can't even afford corn bread..! The problem with Mexicans is that they know who and what the politicos are doing and still don't complain!

This fat cat is why the educational system in Mexico is fubar. She should have flown to Spain with the money. Why she stuck around to get arrested is pure arrogance. She thought she was invincible.

Anonymous said...

Note the mention of $1.7 million San Diego mansion. This is just a pattern of money laundering by corrupt Mexican officials, business folks, sundry criminal linked to narco-cartels, and other criminal enterprises.

She is just one "rat" of many in the USA...

The Mexican educational system is notorious for corruption ... mostly because of the education union in league with corrupt politicians.

You people are idiots!

She did not take all of the money for herself. She gave a big chunk of the money to her political cronies and she forgot that they wanted more and more of her ill gotten gains so she fell out of favor. Now they will put another appointed thief in her position and the gravy train will continue for PRI and Enrique Peña Nieto. All of the political corruption in Mexico allows the cartels business to flourish day after day even when they change names of the participants.

Man I didn't think there were schools in Mexico, guess she's the reason why, took all the $$....Stealing from kids pretty much, something is really wrong with Mexican culture when even an old lady involved in helping those who educate is corrupt...

Killing cartel members will never solve the problems in Mx. But, while that is important, improving society by trying to diminish poverty is a key ingredient in improving society.
Last year, slightly more than half of high school students flunked the math portion of standardized tests, while more than a third flunked Spanish. Mexican students scored the lowest reading levels of developed countries in the most recent survey by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Meanwhile, in 2010, 75% of teachers-in-training failed the exam that would have placed them in a job, and last year only 1% of working teachers passed a test that would have raised their salaries.

Thanks to the union's clout, teachers are allowed to bequeath their
posts to descendants,

Sadly, she is considered the most powerful woman in Mexico.

Much of the failure of the education system in Mx. is due to her iron fisted control of that system. Calderon described the teachers union as a cross between the Soviet Union and Chicago in the 20's.

ok....I have cut down the comments about her looks, we had our fun. but you guys made me laugh hard and loud, too too funny.

and I got a kick out of the comments sent in to my reference of cucuyish. Most people know of the chupacabra, but Mexicans kids grew up fearing the cucuy in the closet. at least in our family that is where he lived and no one dared open a closet door at night in fear of his escape into the home. but I never had a visual to the faceless monster...until this monster. and this monster ugly inside and out, and she is the wall between good and corrupt decisions which directly affected children of Mexico :(


Here is a link to poster 777 of BB forum's post on the subject

in it there is a great video interview with "La Chucky" (as Mex calls her) and tho it is in Spanish, use the caption tool and you can set it on English which gives you subtitles.

You can see she looks better now.

Don't be distracted,,,, even as the judiciary condemns it (((i say it cause her face has no resemblance to any human evolved species))) to years in prison, the prison system is controlled by EPN, ( remember Raul Salinas ? many witnesses spotted Raul at Private beaches during his sentencing while He was in jail cause el PRI would sneak him out),,, EPN owes so much to this creature cause she turned her back to Cuadri, it was EPN's party that she supported, I will not be satisfied until they dismantle the SNTE (like the EMS).

Anonymous said...

I was really hoping she would have received a bullet to the head by a well trained sniper years ago. This piece of human excrement doesn't deserve to live not even in jail is good enough for her. She is the reason why Mexico's education system is the way it is. In 25 years that she was the head of the teachers union all she did was fill her pockets with education money destined to help the teachers and students.. I cringed every time I saw her in public with president Calderon, I think one of Calderon's biggest mistakes was keeping her as the head of the union, but I think he was scared to act against her......... I'm still no fan of E.P.N but he made the right call on this bitch..
