Former Pemex director who took refuge in Texas wanted by Interpol

Last week, it was reported that the control judge of the Federal Justice Center of Almoloya de Juarez, State of Mexico, Daniel Ramirez Peña, had authorized the warrant for the arrest of the former executive, at the request of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR).

Judicial authorities consider that Treviño Medina did not appear at the hearing scheduled for September 7, at his trial for criminal association and operations with resources of illicit origin, and this makes him subject to the arrest warrant.

The defendant would have committed these illicit acts during the association that Pemex, then under his administration, established with Odebrecht, to operate a polyethylene plant, which was supplied with ethanol by the State productive company, with an illegal subsidy that left the Brazilian company millions of dollars in profits.

The accusations against Treviño Medina were made by his predecessor in the position, Emilio Lozoya Austin, who assured that he received in exchange 4,390,000 pesos (215,000 dollars) in bribes.
