In his morning press conference, the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador reiterated his defense of the Mexican Army by pointing out that those involved in the Ayotzinapa case are already in prison and all the information requested from the Sedena and Navy has been provided.

When asked if years ago he imagined defending the Army, the president answered “Yes” and that not only he does it, but also the people, as it is the institution that is most trusted by citizens.

“Yes, yes I imagined because as I know the history (…) I defend the Army and I defend the Armed Forces and do you know who also defends the Army? The majority of the people of Mexico and as the liberal Necromancer Ignacio Ramírez said on religious issues, he was anticlerical, but he said: I kneel where the people kneel,” he declared.

“I told them about the case of the soldier, the latter who was arrested, who is a general because he is accused of alleged links to organized crime, but not in the disappearance of the young people from Ayotzinapa. The direct accusation was because a month or two months before, according to this DEA recording, it appears that a criminal says that they had the support of this colonel and if so, then he has to be punished for that and he is in jail. But from there to say it was the Army, he is quite reckless, that is, and I have the obligation and everyone to take care of the prestige of the Army,” he explained.

The first president assured that the participation of the Mexican Army in the disappearance of the normalistas was limited to the link of “some soldiers” with organized crime and their omission to prevent the kidnapping of the students.

“What happened in Ayotzinapa had more to do with decisions by local authorities and with crime, with criminal association between local authorities, municipal police and the crime that dominated that region”he declared.

Finally, pointing out that it was a state crime, López Obrador said that neither former President Enrique Peña Nieto nor former Secretary of Defense Salvador Cienfuegos gave orders in this case, as it had more to do with decisions by local authorities.

  • In this framework, he accused both the special prosecutor Omar Trejo and the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) of delaying the arrest process and administering the pain of the parents of the 43 missing normal students.

“I spoke with them (the group of experts) and they never gave me anything to prove their statements. ¡Enough of managing people's pain! "You should not use the people's pain, you cannot be deceiving, you must act and tell the truth," he claimed.

If they have proof, to present themlet them be known because everything that the Ministry of Defense has has been delivered. Nothing else has been found, it's all pure conjecture. “We are never going to hide the facts, we are not going to allow impunity,” he added.

  • The president announced that Morena's virtual candidate, Caludia Sheinbaum, has already accepted the protection of the Secretariat of National Defense; Meanwhile, Xóchitl Gálvez will hold a meeting today with the secretary of the Sedena to provide him with details about surveillance.

“It was already raised to both Mrs. Xóchitl and Claudia, it was raised to them that we have the obligation to offer them protection and surveillance. He is talking to them. I understand that one of them has already accepted protection from surveillance. And today there is a meeting,” she said.

“Claudia (Sheinbaum) accepted, and today (…) also so that it is not misunderstood, she (Xóchitl Gálvez) has not rejected it, but she just wants to know the conditions,” he pointed out.

  • López Obrador described the INAI as an “administrative, bureaucratic, good-for-nothing apparatus,” which costs citizens more than a billion pesos, after the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) ordered the Senate to name the three missing commissioners of this institute.

“The only thing we regret is that they created that commission, that office, supposedly for transparency, which was created during the time of (Vicente) Fox to pretend that they were going to fight corruption and it became a cover,” declared.

"Because one of his first decisions was to declare the Odebrecht file as secret, one of the first things, and another decision was to keep secret from the large taxpayers who during the Fox Government had their taxes forgiven and have never done anything in favor of the people and corruption, never and it is a device that costs the people, because the advisors earn more than the president, it costs a billion pesos a year," he indicated.

“This administrative, bureaucratic apparatus, good for nothing, costs a billion, but it is a matter of powers, the external one because it is in the public domain,” he stressed.

  • After the distancing that the Executive Branch has taken with the Judicial Branch and the legal advisor of the Presidency, María Estela Ríosla, was captured, going to the SCJN, the president indicated that he came to present evidence so that they resolve the issue of protection against textbooks.

“They are harming the Judiciary, in a special, direct way, the governor of Coahuila, Miguel Ángel Riquelme and the governor of Chihuahua, Maru Campos, and the Minister of the Court, Luis María Aguilar, are harming many boys, girls, "They don't have their textbooks," he stressed.

“The governor and the governor presented protection and Minister Aguilar granted them protection and the children of these two states do not have their books for political reasons, for being against us (…) Time is passing and they do not have the books of the children,” he said.

  • The Secretary of the Interior, Luisa María Alcalde, accused the Morelos prosecutor, Uriel Carmona Gándara, of having a network of complicities within the Judiciary and the state Congress that have protected him.

When recounting irregularities regarding the judicial processes being followed, the official pointed out that “it is evident that the Morelos prosecutor has a network of complicities within the Judiciary and the Congress of the state of Morelos.”

Among the irregularities presented by Mayor Luján are the murder of activist Samir “N”, in 2019; the murder of two union members in the context of a protest, in 2020; the feminicide of Ariana Fernanda “N”, in 2022; as well as the murder of two workers from the National Institute of Public Health (INSP), which occurred last April.

Likewise, the head of the Interior highlighted that the Morelos prosecutor “did not present the confidence exams to exercise the position (…) he carried them out almost three years after assuming office, in September 2021, the date on which he failed them…Taking office without passing the confidence control exams constitutes a crime.”

  • President López Obrador reaffirmed that the Government of Mexico serves young people as a priority through job opportunities and actions that guarantee the right to education, which ensures that they are not recruited by organized crime.

“Many young people are having opportunities to study and work – which was not done before – and it is no longer easy for criminals to strengthen their ranks, there is no longer this reserve army that they had previously when young people were not taken into account. ”, he stressed.

He explained that the Universal Scholarship for Well-being Benito Juárez for Higher Secondary Education benefits 4 million students.

“What has been achieved with this? Reduce school dropouts, so that young people do not abandon school. “That is a very important piece of information within the framework of our strategy to address the causes that lead to violence,” he noted.

Furthermore, the program Young People Building the Future In five years he has benefited from a minimum monthly salary of 6 thousand 310 pesos to 2 million 600 thousand women and men apprentices. Of this universe, he said, 60 percent obtained permanent work in the places where they received job training.
