Emilio Lozoya used his wife and sister to hide money from bribes: UIF

Everything seems to indicate that Emilio Lozoya Austin, former director of Petróleos de México (Pemex) used his wife and sister to hide the money from the bribes from the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht and Altos Hornos de México (AHMSA), at least that is what the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Ministry of Finance (UIF) believes.

Informed AmericanPost.News that the FIU has documented that Lozoya channeled more than 7 million 369 thousand 657 pesos to the accounts of Marielle Helene Eckes and Gilda Susana Lozoya Austin, wife and sister respectively. In addition, he would also have sent millionaire sums to companies related to both.

The FIU was able to identify a total of 51 interbank transfers made between 2013 and 2019 through accounts located in Mexico, the United States and Germany. The agency considers that these operations were carried out with the objective of “stratifying resources that come from illegal activities” which coincides with the operation of resources of illicit origin, especially with acts of corruption and diversion of resources for which Lozoya is already accused.

The people involved in these operations aimed to hide the source, ownership and destination of resources, so now they must face justice. It should be noted that both Lozoya’s wife and sister have pending arrest warrants since 2019, after being accused of the commission of criminal association and operations with resources of illicit origin.
