They issue a new arrest warrant for Lozoya’s sister – El Financiero

A judge in Mexico City issued a new arrest warrant against Gilda Susana Lozoya Austin, sister of Emilio Lozoya, former director of Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) for the case of the Agronitrogenados plant.

According to Gilda Susana herself, the injunction was issued on April 4 by José Artemio Zúñiga Mendoza, District Judge Specialized in the Accusatory Criminal System of the Federal Criminal Justice Center in Mexico City, based in the Prison North

When processing an amparo trial against the arrest warrant against her, Gilda Susana said that the crimes that are intended to be charged, within criminal case 211/2019, are related to the AgroNitrogenados case.

Said amparo was promoted last Thursday before the Ninth District Court of Amparo in Criminal Matters of the First Circuit, whose head, María Catalina de la Rosa Ortega, declined the jurisdiction.

The judge ordered the case to be turned over to her counterpart at the Eighth District Court, Luz María Ortega Tlapa, who some time ago resolved the amparos promoted by Emilio Lozoya and his relatives.

Gilda Susana considers that the arrest warrant against her violates articles 16, 17, 20 and 21 of the Constitution of the Republic, for which she requested that the injunction be invalidated.

According to the file of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) of the AgroNitrogenados case, Emilio Lozoya received 3.4 million dollars in bribes from Alonso Ancira, owner of Altos Hornos de México (AHMSA).

Said resources were transferred through the company Tochos Holding, which was in the name of Gilda Susana Lozoya Austin, sister of Emilio Lozoya.

The money, according to the complaint, was a bribe to manage with Pemex the purchase of the AgroNitrogenados fertilizer factory, which was in scrap condition.

Said company was acquired by Pemex at a surcharge of more than 200 million dollars. In fact, Ancira reached an agreement to repair the damage, thanks to which he escaped from jail.

The accusations against Lozoya and his sister are still valid to date.
