In interview for MILLENNIUM Television, Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca’s lawyer first said that he respects the opinion of the governor of Hidalgo, Julio Menchaca, who expressed that the complaint against Santiago Nietocurrent office manager of the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Hidalgo (PGJEH), these are “old personal conflicts.”
“I respect the governor of (Hidalgo), I don’t know him, these complaints are not new, but they are from March of this year, they were filed against Santiago Nieto for collusion, orchestration with other public officials to unseat Governor Francisco García Cabeza of Vaca,” said Javier Coello.
He reiterated that videos and various elements of evidence were provided in a complaint that has already been ratified and said that there are other complaints of money laundering, crimes against the administration of justice and operations with resources of illicit origin.
“It is not a personal matter, it is a matter of justice, because it is proven in the investigation file that Santiago Nieto, as director of the Financial Intelligence Unit, used his position and lied to both the Attorney General of the Republic and the Congress of the Republic. Union and the President of the Republic.”
He recalled that an investigation file was initiated due to a complaint filed by today’s senator Alejandro Díaz Durán and “Santiago Nieto hangs on from there and expands.”
He said that the then head of the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) used a false trade of the North American authority to freeze the accounts of both him and his family and an American official who has nothing to do with it.
“We hired, as the Code of Criminal Procedures authorizes us, a private office in the United States, because Santiago Nieto was being investigated there because the American official filed a complaint. They gave us a series of videos, recordings, documents, sworn statements that it is indeed a political persecution. “That is nothing more than a small piece of what the researchers gave us.”
He indicated that if Santiago Nieto says that this is illegal, he should appear before the Attorney General of the Republic.
“And that he clarify why he has not justified the accusation of the Public Service for 20 million pesos, that he clarify how he bought a million-dollar house, apartments, that he clarify how he pressured governors to give his relatives contracts. It is not only a problem for Cabeza de Vaca, but for many Mexicans.”
