Who is Lozoya?

Emilio Lozoya Austin was arrested in Spain today on a Mexican warrant.  For those of you not familiar with  Lozoya, or what he is being accused of:

Lozoya is the former CEO/Diector of  PEMEX Petroleos Mexicanos.  He was arrested on February 12 in Costa de Sol, in Malaga, Spain .

Lozoya Austin faces multiple charges including criminal association, money laundering.

The former official's sister, mother and wife also face charges of money laundering. 

When he was arrested in Spain he was flagrantly living the high life in a mansion estate valued at 27M USD.

Pemex

In the 2012 campaign of Enrique Pena Nieto, Lozoya was the International Link Coordinator.

At the beginning of the six - year term,  he was appointed director of Pemex, until he was dismissed by the President in 2016 ,  when he was involved in bribes involving  the  construction company Odebrecht. 

He accepted bribes from construction companies such as Odebrecht and OHL, to obtain public works bids. 

Also in his capacity as director, he charged 50 thousand to one million pesos for serving businessmen and politicians. He is also charged with the purchase of the Agronitrogenados scrap-processing plant in 2013, at an inflated  price of  57% more of its real value. It was 30 years old and 14 not working, so in 2017 the Superior Audit of the Federation (ASF) revealed that its value was inflated 57 percent.

Pemex also authorized in 2015 the purchase of the Fertinal plant with a value 14 times inflated and absorbed a debt that the fertilizer company maintained.

The Attorney General's Office (FGR) presumes that the purchase of the property could be a bribe, since it was acquired 12 days after a Pemex subsidiary endorsed the purchase of Agro Nitrogenados to AHMSA.



At the request of the FGR , on May 29, 2019, Interpol red flagged  Emilio Lozoya to locate the fugitive in 190 countries.

Nine months later, on February 12, Lozoya was arrested by the Spanish Police and Interpol when he was leaving a residential complex on the Costa del Sol, a rich and tourist neighborhood of Malaga, Spain.

In the next few hours he will be transferred to Madrid to appear before Judge Ismael Moreno at the National Court on Thursday morning.

  8. Wonder how much oil this prick stole and sold to huachilacaros of which he was perhaps the true kingpin. Driving up prices for ordinary citizens, trying to get around to work and elsewhere. Bribes are of course the only crime mentioned that he stands accused of, but that’s a whole lot of plata. Put him in a cell next to some real gangsters and see how he makes out

  9. Too flagrant and obvious not to give a semblance of doing something to hold them accountable, only to gradually fade out to nothing.

  10. Maybe I'm misunderstanding but how does overpaying for a company yield a criminal charge??

    It seems like just a bad business decision.

    Is there proof that he knowingly and purposefully purchased this company for an inflated price and recieved some form of kickback?

    The subsequent audit for the purchase of Agronitrogenados showed it was not in operation for 14 years. However, that doesnt mean the company could have found value or the potential for increased market value later on by investing in the purchase of this company.

  11. Espana, still feeding off the mexican colony after 200 years of independence, all through corruption of public officials, no wonder since Lopez Portillo all have been running to spain to hide their stolen loot, part of Spain's price for their complicity in many international crimes against humanity, sometimes while appearing to be defending human rights like in the case against Pinochet in England or in the Nicaragua case siding with the Sandinistas for a price, and still Spain is broke with foreign and domestic prostitutes walking naked on the streets for their foreign and domestic pimps...

  13. Would have loved to see his face along with others who milked its political powers for enrichment.
    Glad to see the efforts made by the Mexico's government clean house.
    Too bad that we cannot obtain that photo moment when they are left with only their undergarment.

    1. Obrador and Durazno are busy milking the system of bribes from cartels, while in office, when they retire, they will move out of Mexico with thier Ill gotten gains and laugh it out.

      Delete
    2. @ 10:30
      Then why the recent spike in extraditions?
      Would like to still believe in Obrador as a good man. Mexicos issues will not be resolved overnight. Decades of corruption has led to a tiresome feat ahead. Along with turmoil on many sides.

  14. If the Spanish judges get a good bribe, just like in Mexico, I am sure he can be set free. Spain did a better capture than the taking of Chapos son, which US has an aresst warrant for him, and the Mexican government botched it big time.

  18. Mexican authorities should confiscate everything in his immediate families names and make them prove how said properties were purchased. Lozoya needs to receive 100 tablazos por mañoso and them sent to break boulders in hard labor, un buen escarmiento para el y otros lacras que aspiran a robarle al pueblo mexicano.

    1. Arrests have also been issued for his sister and wife. Along with his mother being implicated and under house arrest.
      Curious to see how money and political powers will determine the outcome. This individual clearly has more to say about the involvement of others.
      Finally someone who is making the effort to hold corrupt government officials accountable.

      Must admit the efforts now compared to previous presidents are noted. And not discarded.

      Exactly, if AMLO only accomplishes to crack down on the prior corruption during his presidency, it will hopefully bring about change in the políticos the citizens elect and hold them accountable in their actions or lack thereof. These lacras cause a lot of damage to civil society by stealing the funds and then running off to other countries. They need to be beaten within an inch of death when refusing to turn in all monies embezzled, a little softening will help them.

    3. Corruption and inequality will always exist. Despite its continuous restructuring process to accommodate all. Nevertheless, his efforts for repayment to its citizens are honorable.
      Moreover, not dismissed.

      Peace
