Carlos Romero Deschamps, former leader of the Sindicato de Trabajadores Petroleros de la República Mexicana (STPRM) and one of the most controversial political figures of the PRI in the last six years, died last night at the age of 79 at his home in Mexico City.

The PRI member died a little more than four years after he left his position as leader of the STPRPM, although he made his resignation official in 2021, after being criticized for continuing to receive payments from the union and in the midst of multiple accusations for alleged acts of corruption.

What did Carlos Romero Deschamps die of?

According to the first reports, the former official died last night due to a heart attack, despite the fact that, according to some versions, his family stated that they were unaware that he had any heart condition.

Carlos Romero Deschamps was originally from Tampico, Tamaulipas, and was an accountant, although he worked mainly as leader of the STPRM, senator, and federal deputy.

He was a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) since 1961, where he began his career as a campaign coordinator in his home state in 1969 he joined Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), where two years later he began his activities within the union.

The former union leader was involved in several corruption scandals, among them Pemexgate in 2001, when he was accused of diverting millions of pesos of Pemex workers’ resources to the presidential campaign of Francisco Labastida, PRI candidate in the 2000 elections, after a journalistic investigation.

According to the investigation, the then director of Pemex, Rogelio Montemayor, by order of the then president Ernesto Zedillo, agreed with Romero Deschamps that the union would deliver 1,100 million pesos to the PRI to finance Labastida, for which he was accused and taken to criminal proceedings, but the investigation was suspended in 2006 and concluded in 2011.
