The plenary session of the Permanent Commission endorsed, this Wednesday, the appointment of Felix Arturo Medina as the new owner of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office.
With 29 votes in favor, seven against and zero abstentions, Félix Medina was ratified in office, and protested at the plenary session of Saint Lazarus.
It was the PAN bench that showed its rejection of the official, who appeared before the legislators the day before, where he assured that he would continue with the frontal combat against the tax evasion Y crimes financial.
PAN member Héctor Israel Castillo considered that although Medina Padilla has an academic and professional background, he pointed out that “there are elements to establish that it is not ratified because various investigations into corruption must be addressed.”
Félix Arturo Medina was proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador as head of the Tax Attorney’s Office, this after it was decided to move Carlos Romero Aranda to the IPAB Governing Board, days after being involved in a tax evasion scandal. .
“We are going against the great tax evaders, those who hide behind tax and corporate structures, behind the paper and who pretend to go unpunished. We are going to fight billers, hydrocarbon theft and outsourcing. In general, to the people and organized groups that systematically dedicate themselves to affecting the public treasury,” he asserted a day earlier.
