Due to "health challenges" Ester Gordillo will face trial in the comfort of her home

Posted by Lucio republished from TelSur

“They won’t permit Nestora Salgado speak with her attorney, but Gordillo will face trial from home.” It paid off forcing union members to vote for  President Enrique Peña.


Esther Gordillo was once considered the most powerful woman in Mexico, known for buying political support with stolen union money.
 
Former teachers' union leader Elba Esther Gordillo, arrested on charges of tax fraud, money laundering and organized crime two years ago, will face the trial from the comfort of her own home, a federal court judge ruled Tuesday.
Gordillo was the leader of the National Education Workers' Union (SNTE) – Latin America's largest labor union – since 1989, before she was arrested in February 2013. She is accused of embezzling about US$200 million from the teacher’s guild.

The former leader had also been considered the most powerful woman in Mexico and is known for going on luxurious spending sprees and giving lavish gifts to regional union leaders to buy their support. She was also known for supporting the election of various past presidents, including Enrique Peña Nieto, by obligating union members to vote for them.

Alejandro Caballero Vertiz, the sixth district judge in federal criminal proceedings, ruled that due to Gordillo's age she qualifies for the Law on the Rights of Older Persons. Under the law, people who are above the age of 60 and face debilitating health issues are allowed special privileges in their criminal proceedings. Among those privileges, Gordillo could face trial from home and house arrest, according to Reforma.

 “The judge, in an agreement, has recognized [her] as an elderly person with diseases,  according to the Law on the Rights of Older Persons,” said Marco Antonio del Toro, Gordillo's defense attorney. “There is jurisprudence of the Supreme Court that says that an older adult may be eligible for house arrest when a condition of disease is given, as is the case.”
Gordillo is due to turn 70 on Feb. 6, but her attorney did not elaborate on the health challenges that she faces. [residual issues with plastic surgery perhaps?]
The following tweet sums up corruption in Mexico and the privileges influential “leaders” have in a country that has proven it has no will to eradicate impunity. 

The text reads that, “They won’t permit Nestora Salgado speak with her attorney, but Gordillo will face trial from home.” Salgado is an activist whose only crime was defending the rights of communities in the southern state of Guerrero.

Her altered face, after botched plastic surgeries, earned her the nickname "la Chucky", and triggered an onslaught of memes.

  1. Ridiculous. Didn't she own (or still owns) homes in Texas and/or California that she bought with all the embezzled funds? Were these assets seized or is she at one of her luxury homes awaiting trial ?

  4. Fcking stupid retarded criminal 'justice' of mx. Perra vieja using the flaws in the justice 'system' to get away with crimes. Rules made by their same crooked legislator of 'congress' in case one of them or an asociate gets snatched like in this case. That old btch. How much did she paid that 'judge' seems like she still has the millions she stole from the students.

  10. I'm surprised she was ever charged in the first place. Wonder what happened in back rooms the led to the loss of her protection/power? They didn't just decide after over 20 years of looking the other way to enforce the law.

  13. The only thing I don't like about BB (and honestly the ONLY thing) is that sometimes we get sidetracked by things like this that make us angry but aren't really that important. This DOES show corruption to some extent, especially by comparison to Nestora Salgado, but I don't personally care where the trial is held as long as the trial is FAIR. Let's focus on the corruption that happens in the actual trial, and has happened in trials of other rich people, rather than nitpicking details that don't in themselves affect the outcome of the trial.

  14. Well dear feynman, The comparison fails to see that others are in prison waiting for their trial, and will be sentenced after a long time, CRIME OR NO CRIME, while this fucking bitch is 100% a criminal, sheges to while the while away at home, and will probably die at home and leave all the money to her ''politician''daughter, i hope some pimp takes her motherfucking ass to the cleaners, ALL THE WAY, just like la chuky got her position after bending over for all the teachers union leaders that got her on board after being a fucking teibolera showing her ass for tips, at least we get to drag her ass on the coals here...
