  1. Pretty boy will have a tough time in prison.

  2. Who can you trust ? LOL

  3. Hopefully, this trend is the beginnings of a precedent that has been long overdue for all politicians who abuse their authority for monetary gain. Added with all those who were in association.
    AMLO is facing many challenges from many high government officials who do not agree to change. Rather, the enriching practices which Mexico is known for.

    Time will tell the direction of the country.


    1. I doubt it. His partner - actual mayor of Cancun - got an Amparo.

  4. He is convicted criminal and they still censor his eyes, Mexico still has primitive laws.
