President Andrés Manuel López Obrador criticized the work of the Judiciary, noting that it protects the elites.
This, when questioned about the work of the federal judge who permanently suspended the arrest warrant issued against the governor of Tamaulipas, Francisco Javier Cabeza de Vaca, for the crimes of money laundering and organized crime.
In his morning conference this Thursday, the president regretted this decision but said that they will respect it.
“It is not possible for the Legislative Power to decide that the lawlessness proceeds and that the investigation against the governor of Tamaulipas should be carried out, that the competent authorities do their job, and suddenly the judge protects,” he said.
López Obrador said that judges do not act the same in all cases and that people with limited resources are usually the most affected.
“That is the problem that the Judiciary has, which protects and protects only the elites, the potentates, or the representatives of the so-called political class, or the owners of large corporations, it is an elite justice, in quotation marks. “Only those who do not have handles are punished, those who do not have to buy their innocence, that is wrong, but the judge’s decision must be respected,” he said.
