MCCI has documented illegal funding of PRI through awarding companies

The Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (ICSI) issued an investigation Wednesday of a presumed deviation of around 650 million pesos to finance PRI campaigns in five countries and territorial demarcation of Mexico through a scheme similar to the Chihuahua case that has collided with the governor Javier Coral and the Enrique Pena's Government.

In their investigation, journalists Raul Olmos, Valerie Duran and Ricardo Alvarado have discovered that the authorities used 12 spiritual companies and the Tax Administration System (SAT) was omitted.

Then the journalistic investigation is reproduced in its entirety:

Authorities in seven countries have diverted around 650 million pesos to 12 spiritual companies linked to an alleged illegal funding scheme for PRI election campaigns.

Of the previous sum, 250 million pesos respond to Chihuahua and another 400 million to deviations that have not yet been revealed in another 6 subjects.

On 21 December 2017, the New York Times revealed in a joint investigation of its correspondent in Mexico and the correspondent of the magazine process in Washington, the mechanism for diverting public funds from Chihuahua for PRI campaigns in 2016 with the alleged collusion between the then PRI leader Manio Fabio Beltroness and the Federal Ministry of Finance at the time of Louis Vidgariy. Questions that have already been rejected by both.

In this revelation, the use of four ghost companies was mentioned.

A study of Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI) found that these four companies and eight other companies received equivalent transfers this year to $ 36 million from the governments of Chihuahua, Durango, Sonora, Colima, and Mexico, and the Morelos Congress and the Milt Alta delegation in Mexico City for "Operation Safiro" (hence "s"), which is the name PRI operators have entrusted to the mechanism of diverting public funds.

According to the ministry statements of former Chihuahu employees, the funds transferred were diverted for election purposes.

Ricardo Janez, a former Chihuahua education secretary who was sentenced to four years in prison for a diversion, told the public ministry that at a PRI meeting in 2016, the party's leaders told him this would not be annoyed because the spirits used were protected by the SAT and that Chihuahua was not the only country in which it had managed to divert funds, which happened in other entities with similar mechanisms. "

In addition, he added that then Chihuahua Governor Sisar Duarte informed him that the money for the simulated contracts had been explicitly cleared by the Ministry of Finance of the Federation in agreement with Manlio Fabio Beltrones to conduct PRI election campaigns. in other countries.

According to the information gathered by MCCI, the biggest deviations made during the same year in the spirits network corresponded to the efforts of the Chihuahua PRI governors, Caesar Duarte (246 million pesos); Durango, Jorge Herrera Caldera (230 million), and Sonora, Claudia Pavlovic (140 million).

The Morelos Congress transferred at least 16.4 million pesos and the government of Colima, led by José Ignacio Peralta, another 15 million. The investigation found operations for a ghost of the network in Mexico during the Eurail Avila, as well as the management of PRI member Jorge Alvarado in the Milpato Alta delegation south of Mexico City, although in both cases the documented sums are minimal .

In the case of Edomex, it was not possible to determine the actual amount of the transfers as the government of that company hid the business information.

According to testimony, the deviant money is of federal origin. A database prepared by MCCI found that the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) multiplied the budget for three of the participating entities in the year in which the deviation occurred.

Forfafin shares, which SHCP manages discretely, increased by more than 500% for Chihuahua in 2016, 22% for Colima, and 12.7% for Durango.

Carla Areli Jurado Baididis, who was also convicted of diverting resources to Chihuahua, agreed in her ministerial statement that two of her ministers at the Ministry of Education had informed her that other governments had been involved in funding PRI election campaigns .

"They said he was pushing him to take that money (246 million euros) to be used for the national PRI, and that several countries also contributed resources and that Chihuahua had to contribute that amount," he said in his certificate.

Witnesses say Alejandro Gutierrez, who is Deputy Secretary General of the National PRI in 2016, is the one who put the names of the companies that would simulate the operations to make the diversion.

Gutierrez was imprisoned for nine months, accused of abuse by the current Chihuahua government led by Javier Coral, although released on September 28, 2018. Since that date, he has been given a protective ascetic as part of a precautionary measure, remain exclusively in the state of Chihuahua, as the process is progressing.

The shareholders of the companies involved in the deviations in 7 countries are in fact pretentious because they are residents of the popular and marginal neighborhoods of the metropolis in Mexico City, screened by MCCI in a tour.

The main stop is José Juan Sialiano Gonzalez, a former CUSAEM agent arrested for robbery in October 2016, along with two other police officers who also appear to be beneficiaries of transfers to the recognized network, reviewed by the reporters.

The ICTY revealed on September 5 the participation of the former policeman in the tour, but the new investigation has shown the involvement of two daughters, his wife and other relatives and neighbors as a renegade.

Spread money into more facade companies

The MCCI investigation found that presidents are shareholders of more companies that were used to disperse part of the money transferred from state governments.

For example, on April 7, 2016, the Chihuahua government transferred 246 million pesos to four Banco Santander accounts on behalf of SINNAX, SAMEX, SISAS, and the Office of Future Professionals, as salaries for services that were never offered.

A few days later, most of the money paid by Chihuahua was transferred to affiliated companies, as well as to individuals, some of whom proved themselves to be pretentious, their relatives and friends. Another part of the diverted funds was to provide an office in Monterrey, which the Tax Administration Office (SAT) released on the black list for simulation of commercial operations.

This means that the money went from hand to hand, in transactions with obvious money laundering or disappearing traces of the final recipient.

To quote one case: On 7 April 2016, César Duarte's government transferred 90 million peso to Santander's account at Despacho de Profesionistas Futura SA de CV for software that had never been delivered.

The next day, the fake supplier of the Chihuahua government transferred 40 million pesos to Recrea, Services and Advising SISAS, the ICON, Pragmatics, and Constructora Franfeca, all companies that share as neighbors neighbors of popular areas in the metropolitan area of ​​the city of Mexico.

Three more days (April 11) transferred 36 million pesos to six related companies: SINEX, Franfeca, Recrea Recreation, Vezcu Comercializadora, ICON Advertising and Constructor Invelco. And two days later, a third round of transfers was made, this time for 7 million pesos of Asesores SAMEX and Constructora Tocap, two other companies in the same network of loan officers.

Futura's shareholder is the wife of a former police officer in Mexico, arrested in October 2016 for a robbery that has his house in the popular area of ​​Azacopalco; the other companies include two of their children, one daughter-in-law and a cousin, and two brothers who live in a marginal colony high on the hill of the Magdalena Contreras delegation south of Mexico City.

In less than a week, from April 8 to April 13, 83 million of the 90 million pesos that the Chihuahua government paid to Futah for non-existent services were scattered through front companies.

Such spreading operations for front companies were made with three other payments of 156 million pesos that César Duarte's government made for services and advised SINNAX, SAMEX and SISAS for courses that were never taught.

They hide the millionaire payments in the Sonora

The financial statements and other documents consulted by MCCI indicate that the Sonora government transferred more than 140 million pesos in 2016 to 7 companies in which the former CUSAEM agent was arrested for robbery and four members of his family as alleged owners.

The PRI administration, Claudia Pavlovich, is hiding information because, in response to requests for information, it only reports that it has made four payments for only 580,000 pesos to two signatures of the recognized network.

According to the documents, Sonora payments were made at the same time as the César Duarte Government's payments in Chihuahua in April 2016.

In addition, Sonora uses three of the four companies that Duarte uses for alleged electoral streets.

For example, on account 012760004481069910 of BBVA Bancomer, the Sonoran government made 7 transfers between 11 and 26 April 2016 for 21 million 544,000 Peso in favor of Banco Santander's account 65505304146 on behalf of the Bureau of Future Specialists.

There was an additional payment to Futura for 5 million 917,000 peso, which the Sonora government made through the Ecological Advisory Commission as shown in two payment orders.

PRI government Claudia Pavlovic transferred a total of 27 million 461,000 Pesos to the Office of Future Specialists, the same company used by Cesar Duarte in the so-called Safiro operation to divert money for PRI campaigns.

Services and consultations SINNAX and SISAS, two other companies to which the Chihuahua government transferred 101 million pesos in the same Safiro operation, also received millionaire payments from Sonora.

The documents consulted by MCCI provided 6 bank transfers from Sonora's Ministry of Finance in favor of SINNAX for 23 million 434 thousand pesos and another 5 deposits for 16 million 100 thousand peso at the expense of SISAS at Banco Santander . All these payments were made in April 2016.

Three other companies in the same network that shared homes and retired received more transfers from the same bank account of BBVA Bancomer to the Sonora government: Comercializadora Fing, with 9 deposits for 28 million 901,000 pesos; Office of Faga Professionals, with 10 transfers for another 28 million 483,000 pesos and Constructora y Abastecedora Cofex, with 7 payments for 15 million 685,000 pesos.

MCCI has requested transparently copies of the contracts provided to this network of companies, but the Sonora government has hidden the information. In his replies, he said that he has only four direct allocations for minimum amounts: three for Comercializadora Fing for 250,000 pesos as a supplier of the Department of Security and one for 330,000 pesos in favor of SAMEX Services and Advising for seminars and conferences.

MCCI consulted in the social communication field of Sonora, which denied any direct contractual relationship with the aforementioned companies.

Sonora's State Treasury has simply added that, as part of its integrity policy, the state government guarantees and observes that the contracted services are provided and that the documentary evidence that the contracts have been fulfilled is fulfilled.

However, with regard to more than 140 million pesos distributed to this group of companies, they denied that such a lease existed.

They close the Durango security fund

Durango is the second country with the biggest deviations associated with the so-called Safiro operation. In 2016 the deviations of five companies from this network amounted to 230 million 400,000 Pesos.

The financial reports consulted by MCCI documented that between 1 March and 25 May 2016 the Executive Secretary of the State Council of Public Safety Board of Durango transferred 94 million 392,000 peso to two Banco Santander accounts in FAGA Professionals and services and advice to SINNAX; This latter company was used in those days by César Duarte's government for allegedly diverting public resources to PRI campaigns.

According to Durango's Prosecutor's Office, deviations from the Security Council add up to 200 million pesos through the same companies used by the former PRI leader Alejandro Gutiérrez in Chihuahua. However, the Agency refuses to provide a copy of the contracts or payment documents so that it was not possible to identify the names of all the participating companies.

What the Prosecutor's Office has confirmed is that, as in Chihuahua, the money diverted to Durango came from the extraordinary federal budget for security projects.

With the tour of these 200 million companies simulating services, the former Durango Security Council secretary Juan Carlos Assencio Perez and his administrator Lilyana Vadzhez Morales were arrested on October 1 last year.

In addition to circumventing the security fund, the administration of former PRI governor Jorge Herrera Caldera assigned between April and May 2016 nine construction contracts for three companies from the same ghost network of 30 million 400,000 Pesos, according to documents submitted to MCCI from the Durango Finance Ministry.

The developers of Abastecedora Casmex, Servicios y Asesorías Pragmatics and Servicios Empresariales 3M received three contracts for analyzes and execution projects.

For example, pragmatics has been commissioned to develop two cost-benefit analyzes of the second stage of the Durango Northern Highway corridor, the second periphery of Gómez Palacio and three rural roads.

Casmex and Servicios Empresariales 3M were responsible for the preparation of the Colosio distributor's execution projects, two cruises on the northern highway corridor and the modernization of part of the Mazatlán exit in the Durango municipality.

The companies did not have the capacity to perform the contracts. Servicios Empresariales 3M registers its fiscal domicile in the house of an insignificant neighborhood of the Magdalena Contreras delegation while Casmex is registered in a house in Colonia El Sol in Neza; Practitioners, on the other hand, occupy a virtual office in Tlanetpanlan. These two last appear in the black list of SAT by simulation of operations.

Deviations from the Morelos Congress

The Congress of Morlos made transfers for 16 million 404,000 Pesos to six spiritual companies, among which three were used by Cesar Duarte in Operation Safiro, according to documents advised by MCCI.

Transfers were made on four Banco Santander and one Banorte accounts on behalf of the SINNAX, SAMEX, Future, FAGA, Constructora and Abastecedora COFEX and Novanight SA de CV companies, whose alleged owners are former state police. Mexico and its relatives.

The first deposit of 3 million 182,000 peso was made on November 20, 2015 at 65505303950 in Santander, on behalf of FAGA. On the same day, the congress in Morelees transferred 1 million 449,000 700 pesos to SINNAX 65505303811 at the same bank.

In December there was a pause and the transfers were resumed on January 19, 2016, this time for 1 million 840,000 Pessos in favor of FAGA.

On February 16, there is a new round of 3 million 590,000 Pesos deposits on the Santander accounts of FAGA and SAMEX, and next month the same amount for the same companies.

The Morelos Congress transferred another 2 million pesos on March 16 to 413881577 in Banorte, in the name of Novanight.

Information provided by MCCI found that there were transfers via a fund set up and run by local MPs for allegedly managed work for them.

For example, on May 22, 2016, the Moreold Development and Municipal Strengthening Fund transferred 479,000 pesos, at 65,505,303,995 to Santander, on behalf of Constructora y Abastecedora COFEX for "Various Materials, Construction and Rehabilitation".

A few days ago from BBVA Bancomer's account 012540001037884827, Morelos Congress's fund transferred another 218,000 pesos to Santander's 65505304146 account, the owner of which was the Office of Future Professionals, one of the spiritual companies that used the same month in the Qihuahua Elections.

This fund has a lifetime since it was created on November 25, 2015 at the beginning of the previous Morelense legislature, with a budget of 81 million pesos, and it was extinguished on August 29, 2018 two days before MPs would sign their mandate.

Local legislators hid information about payments made in the network of awarding companies.

Since August 2018, requests for information have been filed, and after the expiry of the deadline for reply, the Morall Congress's Transparency Unit has not even communicated the requests received.

Colima shares the "ghosts" of Chihuahua

Услуги и консултации SINNAX и SISAS, две от фантомните компании, използвани от Чиуахуа за опериране на отклоняването на средства, за да се предполага, че финансират PRI кампании, също са получили трансфери от правителството на щата Колима, според финансовите отчети, консултирани от MCCI.

На 26 май 2016 г. входящата администрация на PRI José Ignacio Peralta (протестирала през февруари тази година) направи два трансфера за 3 милиона 163 хиляди 896 песос, за сметка на 413881595 Banorte, чийто собственик беше компанията SINNAX.

Същия ден правителството на Колима изпраща 2 милиона 174 хил. Песо на сметка 413881607 на същата банка, на името на SISAS.

Първата компания има като акционер бившата полиция "Едомекс", а втората – дъщеря си, която живее в къща в квартал Сан Педро Xalpa в Azcapotzalco. И двете подписи са били сигнализирани от SAT за симулирани операции.

Имаше трета компания, свързана с предишните, която също получи трансфери от правителството на Колима.

Това е Novanight SA de CV, която през март 2016 г. получи 4 трансфера в сметка 413881577 на Banorte за 9 милиона 803 хиляди песос. Администраторът на това дружество е "Сандибел Галардо", роднина на полицията и пребиваващ в квартал Сан Антонио Xahuento, община Tultepec.

Като цяло Колима прехвърли 15 милиона 142 хиляди песос, въпреки че в исканията за достъп до информация правителството на тази държава отказа да извърши плащания или да подпише договори.

Също така Edomex и Milpa Alta

Мрежата-призми също имаше операции в Мексиканска държава, където шест компании имаха фискален дом.

Предишната администрация, отговаряща за Ерувиел Авила, наела Comercializadora Fing SA de CV, една от компаниите, създадени от бивш полицай, арестуван за грабеж.

Докладът за обществените сметки за 2016 г. показва баланс, който трябва да бъде платен в краткосрочен план за 488 000 900 песос в полза на Comercializadora Fing, от режима за защита на здравето на Edomex, който е органът, който отговаря за включването на Seguro Popular населението, което няма социална сигурност.

MCCI поиска от правителството на Edomex копие от договорите и платежните документи, дадени на компаниите от признатата мрежа, но в отговора си увери, че информацията е несъществуваща, макар че има документи, доказващи, че поне тя е била приета като доставчик до Fing през 2016 г. Действителната сума и концепцията за договора остават скрити.

В кметството на Милпа Алта, разположено на юг от Мексико Сити, две компании от мрежата на призрак са били използвани за симулиране на търгове и поне един от тях е бил възложен на договори.

На 16 септември 2016 г. директорът на придобиването на делегацията Лесли Хернадес Баранко изпрати писма до Constructora Invelco и Constructora y Abastecedora Cofex, за да поискат котировки за участие в покана за подаване на оферта за доставка на асфалтова смес.

Invelco представи предложение за 5 милиона 555 хил. Песо, докато Cofex цитира услугата на 5 милиона 364 хиляди песос. Договорът бе възложен на Ansof Comercializadores, фирма в Мексико Сити, която представи по-евтина позиция.

Същите три дружества бяха поканени за две други търгове и отново Invelco и Cofex загубиха до Ansof, която получи договорите с котировка от 3 милиона 160 хиляди песос.

Тръжните предложения бяха симулация, тъй като и Invelco, и Cofex нямаха съоръжения и инфраструктура. Първият се появява в окончателния списък на духовните компании на САТ, както е посочено в публикацията на Държавен вестник на федерацията от 16 август 2017 г.

Invelco има като акционер съпругата на бивша полицая "Едомекс", арестувана за грабеж, а администраторът на Cofex е роднина, пребиваващ в Tultepec.

В договорните отношения на делегацията Милпа Алта е предоставено пряко възлагане на Invelco на 19 юли 2016 г. за поддръжката на 16 климатични инсталации.

Служителят, поканил фантомните фирми през 2016 г. на симулирани търгове и които след това възлагат договора на един от тях, е снаха на кой тогава беше делегатът на Милпа Алта, членът на PRI Хорхе Алварадо Галиция.

Лесли Хернадес Баранко, който е подписал документите, е приятелката на сина на делегата, който на свой ред е служил като съветник в разграничаването.
