AMLO asks DEA to act prudently to the judiciary reform

Mexico City, Jun 19 (Prensa Latina) President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) on Wednesday urged the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to act prudently and respectfully in relation to the judiciary reform in Mexico.

Regarding DEA´s opinion, I do believe its standpoint is being taken into account, but they should act prudently, because Mexico is an independent nation: who are they to decide on matters that correspond to Mexicans,’ AMLO said.

Who authorized them to put its two cent in our internal affairs? AMLO asked in response to a journalist’s question during his usual press briefing from the National Palace.

It’s as if I were giving an opinion about ‘why they don’t report on extension of deadlines to try (Genaro) García Luna (former Mexican Security Secretary from 2006 to 2012 and detained in the United States for drug trafficking) after he has been dragging his feet for so long’.

But it’s not up to me to get involved in that, they have their own procedures’, said the president, calling once again on DEA officials to be more prudent and respectful.
