It has been a few months since the Brazilian company accused government officials of former president Enrique Peña Nieto of receiving millionaire bribes, as happened in countries like Brazil or Peru.

However, after having been involved in corruption in Mexico, a complaint filed by Odebrecht with the National Commission of Human Rights (CNDH), points to 12 officials from the past six years, including the PGR and Functionaries. Public, Alberto Elías Beltrán and Arely Gómez, to put together a strategy to hide the investigation of the acts of corruption that was denounced and of which only in Mexico there have been no arrests.

"It is evident that it has been a strategy of members of the federal government, through the SFP, to impose sanctions on those represented, in systematic violation of their rights, as if they were the result of the investigation of corruption that has been reported."

The complaint, presented by Joao Henrique Andrade Araujo Horst, the giant constructor's representative, states that, based on its agreements with the authorities of Brazil and the United States, ir has been willing to cooperate with the investigations initiated by the PGR for the bribes confessed by its directors to Mexican officials.

Along with that, Odebrecht accuses the Mexican authorities of only initiating administrative inquiries and sanctioning the company for issues that are totally unrelated to what really matters: corruption in the Government. Odebrecht assures that this situation, created by the Government, has generated a false impression before the public opinion.

In fact, Odebrecht accusations go further by assuring that Peña Nieto and his government sought the dismissal of Santiago Nieto from the Specialized Prosecutor's Office for Electoral Crimes (Fepade), one of those most interested in resolving the case. The company also claims that the previous government prevented access to public versions of the investigation, despite what was ordered by the INAI.

The construction company also ensures that part of the alleged anomalies attributed to it by the Federal Comptroller's Office are in fact acts authorized by members of Pemex's Board of Directors, to which they have not been investigated.

"Various of the alleged irregularities that are imputed, as well as alleged breaches of contracts called Tula I and II, were expressly authorized by the internal bodies (representatives, members of the Board of Directors of Pemex and / or Pemex Industrial Transformation, Procurement Committee , etc.) of Pemex.
