Plenty of complaints but no action

Published by DD Republished from Mexico New Daily

Chief auditor Portal
The Federal Auditor’s Office (ASF) has filed 270 criminal complaints as a result of its investigations into state government spending, but no one has been held responsible for mismanaging federal funds.

Most of the complaints, 260, were filed between March 2014 and September 2016.

The ASF’s list has the state of Veracruz at the top with 56 complaints, 53 of which correspond to the administration of its governor-on-leave and on-the-run, Javier Duarte.

Don't be too sure of that Senor Duerte


Jalisco followed with 23 complaints, Michoacán with 21, Morelos with 19 and Chihuahua with 17.

The ASF oversees more than just the financial performance of state governors. Since its creation in 2000, it has filed a total of 723 complaints against federal government secretariats, parastatal organizations and decentralized government agencies, as well as individuals who have been allocated federal funds by Congress.

Last week, the head of the ASF was critical of the Attorney General’s office (PGR) for its lack of action regarding financial issues in Veracruz. Chief auditor Juan Manuel Portal complained that his office had revealed the mismanagement of resources in the Duarte administration but the PGR ignored the reports and did nothing.

He told the newspaper Milenio that similar cases occurred with the states of Michoacán, Jalisco and the State of México.

“It was clear what we found in Veracruz, but nothing was done in response. We’ve been filing complaints since 2014 . . . and will continue to do so,” said Portal.

The chief auditor lamented that the number of public prosecutors isn’t enough to deal with the over 8,000 observations and reports his office issues every year.

Portal also said that authorities should go after all public officials accused of committing acts of corruption.


 Durango joins states under the microscope

 Former Durango governor Jorge Herrera Caldera joins Javier Duarte of Veracruz, César Duarte of Chihuahua and Roberto Borge of Quintana Roo, all of whom have been accused of mismanaging public funds, putting the states’ financial records under the microscope of the Federal Auditor’s office (ASF).

The probe into the possible embezzlement of state funds by Herrera’s administration has already resulted in the detection of irregularities involving more than 4 billion pesos (just under US $200 million). Also during the governor’s six-year term the state’s debt increased by 224%, bringing the total owed to more than 15 billion pesos.

The budget allocations affected by Herrera’s alleged mismanagement include key sectors such as health, explained the ASF. Between 2011 and 2014, payments reported as doctors’ salaries were received by people who were not in fact doctors.

Diversion of resources and under-spending were also common practice, along with murky bidding processes, poor control over the purchase of medications and event management, and unexplained delays in transferring resources.

The practices often led to poor medical care because the state’s hospitals often reported shortages in medical supplies and drugs.

Resources allocated to security were also affected: over 7.4 million pesos was spent in 2014 on purchasing weaponry that only exists on paper. An additional 5.7 million was also spent on arms,, but no documents exist to back up the purchase.

The new state comptroller, Rosario Castro, has detected even more irregularities and has summoned over 30 officials of the previous administration, including Herrera.

The governor and those officials have filed for amparos to give them legal protection against any process that could be launched against them.


  1. This fat pig Duarte deserves the death penalty. Execute this motherfucker.

    1. No, plis, nomás que lo cuelguen de los webos y le den un escopetazo en el fundillo, y si vive vive, pero primero que confiese todo el pinchi pedo, y regrese todo el pinchi dinero y propiedades, pero YA!
      "tenemos" como otros 500 pinchis politicos "agarrando cola"...

  2. Kiko vega from Baja California is now also under investigation! 🙌🏼

    1. As so he should be! Finally......lets see what comes of it.
      Next they should go after Corrubias, ex gov of BCS while they are at it.
      Corrupcion puro.

    2. I have never heard of one Mexican state governor who has not embezzled public funds and gotten rich from his term in office. Not surprisingly, the statute of limitations is only 2 or 3 years, which allows them time to enjoy their new riches without anybody bothering them. The only governor that may prove to be honest is Javier Corral, the new Chihuahua governor. Even he is reluctant to go after the former governor of Chihuahua, Duarte, even though the state is broke after he stole everything in sight.

    3. Pancho Villa was a governor of Chihuahua, and did a wonderful job, all the others have been one thick bunch of hijos de la chingada

    4. Peña nieto anda salpicando de cagada a todos sus "buddies" para salvar sus putas nalgas y su "pinchi presidencia".
      "Mexico es Primero" porque es la pinchi bacinilla de donde los priistas tragan su corrupción.

  3. How about this. A small list of officials who are not corrupted, the rest thrown to the dogs. Disgusting.

    1. 6:41 who is the politician who is not corrupt?
      It can't be a priista or panista or pvemista or perredista, porque ya lo hubieran matado o metido al bote por pendejo.

  4. One more "Amparo" and dd and el wachiro should be looking for Refugio.
    --possible embezzlement does not exist in mexico, it is real and true.
    But in mexico, some report that 70% of the imprisoned are there for about $1 000.00 pesos, about ($50.00 dollars usd).
    --While Carmen Aristegui was receiving her Prize her office got broken into, computers were stolen, but that is OK, if she had been in the office she would be gone and disappeared, the plumbers don't give a fack, they even posed for the security cameras, and Salvador cienpedos did not care to disapped the evidence, admire their mugs on youtube...

  5. After losing so badly in the 2016 gubinatorial election the PRI has to be running scared while PAN wants the presidenticy back in 2018, plus more governor positions. I have to hope there is some chance of reform. The trick is limited reform so that the sacrificial lambs dont rat out those throwing them to the wolfs.

  6. Nothing will be done against those puercos.a duarte le va a pasar lo de herodes compas.

    El Arcangel

  8. Sixth District Court in DF accepted an " AMPARO " filed by Javier Duarte:

    1. The latest story in Proceso is that the amparo Duarte was trying to get to keep from being arrested has been denied. The 11th District Amparo court on Criminal Matters has denied the amparo because Duarte no longer has legislative immunity against arrest, which was the basis upon which the 6th District Court had admitted the earlier amparo. Maybe he'll get picked up an put in jail, at least for a few days until he bonds out or until the government botches the investigation. Intentionally.

  9. I think that we are fooling ourselves here at BB, we need to start the revolucion mexicana if we want changes.
    Arriba la revolucion jijos del cocho.

    Lil' Pancho Villa.

    1. You are right...however this is the only thing the government would nip before it would have any chance.

  10. It would be interesting to read "the truth" about how hopeless the normal honest Mexican public are really feeling,
    Pretty much everything that can be wrong in a society is in full effect in Mexico. Like crime going from the president and down is not bad enough but when you cant trust the police you have nobody to "turn to" when you become a victim. Hell if you go to the cops they might just hand you over to some meth head cartel retard to kill you.
