The campaign team of Jose Antonio Meade, PRI pre-candidate for Mexico’s 2018 presidential election stated that they are considering the possibility to sue ANIMAL POLITICO one of Mexico’s leading journalistic media organizations, because of a news item published as of January 10th, where ANIMAL POLITICO reported that the Federation Supreme Auditor (Auditor Supremo de la Federación in Spanish) had submitted three legal suits at the Republic General Attorney (Procuraduría General de la República PGR) regarding an alleged 540 million pesos embezzlement when Meade was in charge of the Social Development Department (Secretaría de Desarrollo Social: SEDESOL).
Meade’s campaign team sent a letter in response to the journalistic note, which was published by ANIMAL POLITICO on Thursday January 11th, despite the information versions stating that the suit is a fact, there hasn’t been any legal procedure against the website, the freedom of speech defending website ARTICLE 19 has called this action “ . . .an intent to inhibit the press . . .”.
The answer of ANIMAL POLITICO signed by the portal Director goes as follows:
“Summarizing, the letter that Mr. Meade’s legal team sent, we deem it should be sent to the Federation Supreme Auditor. ANIMAL POLITICO only reported that there were ongoing legal procedures and what the audits said”.
