In a surprising turn of events, the Mexican Presidency has yet to refute the ongoing investigation of the Spy Army, despite pressure from various organizations. The government seems intent on disqualifying evidence related to the investigation, raising suspicions about the true extent of their involvement in the matter.

Meanwhile, as Mexico City suffers from severe drought, companies have been forced to cede water concessions to the government. This comes as part of a larger effort to address the city's water scarcity issues, which have been exacerbated by climate change.

In a recent statement, President AMLO revealed that the government had conditioned the delivery of the bodies of Jesuits killed in Chihuahua on the army's departure from the region. He also linked the recent surge in violence in Guanajuato to drug consumption, though critics have questioned the validity of this claim.

AMLO has also made headlines for his comments on various other topics, including the alleged link between fentanyl trafficking and dismissals at Cofepris, a recent hacking incident involving a guacamaya ("guacamaya" refers to a hacking incident that allegedly involved the Mexican government hacking into the armies of other countries), and accusations that former electoral institute head Lorenzo Córdova is using public funds to "conspire against the people."

In other news, a swimming teacher was recently arrested for an alleged rape at a school pool, while two individuals were detained for murder in Eje Central and Paseo de la Reforma.

On a more positive note, senators have approved 12 days of vacation for Easter Week, and the Mexico City Government has reached agreements with the Metro Union for labor improvements.

Unfortunately, there have also been some tragic incidents, including a multi-homicide in Guadalajara, in which subjects killed two women and two minors in an attempt to obtain their property, and the killing of a PRD leader in Huatulco, Oaxaca.

Lastly, in a bid to ease tensions, Mexican senators are seeking a meeting with U.S. lawmakers. This comes after a recent lawsuit forced Cuevas to declare sonideros (sound artists) a cultural heritage of Cuauhtémoc, and a judge gave the Senate three days to unblock INAI appointments.

On a medical note, a physician has suggested that metformin could alleviate symptoms of persistent Covid-19, while a nurse tragically died after allegedly performing liposuction on herself in Cuernavaca. As the country continues to grapple with a range of complex issues, one thing is clear: Mexico remains a vibrant and dynamic nation, full of surprises at every turn.
