MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s federal government will file challenges with the country’s Supreme Court against laws enacted in two states that purport to be anti-corruption but may really intend to protect outgoing governors, officials told the Associated Press.
State congresses in the eastern states of Quintana Roo and Veracruz have in recent weeks passed laws or adjusted existing ones that they say will help combat corruption. But critics have said the changes are intended to protect their outgoing governors from prosecution.
Federal Deputy Attorney General Salvador Sandoval said that the state laws contravene a national anti-corruption system. Critics have said the laws would allow the naming of anti-corruption prosecutors loyal to the outgoing governors.
