Lopez Obrador denounces fraud by energy companies in Mexico
30 de junio de 2020, 19:33Mexico, Jun 30 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Tuesday denounced again a colossal fraud by energy companies, particularly from Spain and the United States, which sell energy to the State.
During his regular morning press conference at the National Palace, Lopez Obrador answered a question about a ruling by the Supreme Court of Justice in favor of those companies, and said that the Government will defend its rights.
I warn you to avoid confusions in other parts like Spain and the United States when we denounce the fraud to the nation through purchases of so-called 'clean energies' and the corruption surrounding them.
The president said that officials are involved in the fraud and, of course, those who signed the agreements on the tariffs.
He explained that there was an annex that had nothing to do with the public bid procedure, with a tariff that is different in order to charge much more than what was agreed upon in the contracts.
Lopez Obrador added that his government is not against clean renewable energy because it is modifying the procedure of contracts that was also a fraud, to supply energy to the national network, which in practice excludes the state companies.
The plan implemented so far, he said, was to ruin the public enterprises and privatize the entire sector. That is the matter that is in the Court, the fraud, the excessive charge and that is why, the public price of electricity does not decrease.
