translated from Spanish: Court discards complaint from Lozoya’s wife and mother

A federal court dismissed two appeals that had been promoted by the mother and wife of former Pemex director Emilio Lozoya Austin as part of an amparo lawsuit they promote to try to overturn apprehension orders turned against him for his possible complicity in money laundering operations.
According to the data released on Thursday in the lists of agreements of the Council of the Federal Judiciary, the Third Collegiate Tribunal in Criminal Matters based in Mexico City declared the complaints promoted by Mariele Helene Eckes and Gilda Margarita Austin de Solís unfounded.
This follows from the amparo appeals promoted for several months by the two women, and with which they attempt to annul the arrest warrants obtained by the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic (FGR) against them and Emilio Lozoya himself.
As part of those appeals, which have not yet been settled in the background, both Helene Eckes and Margarita Austin attempted to present various evidence that the judge responsible for the protection refused to admit. That is why they lodged a complaint with that court, but that court concluded that the action is unfounded.
This means that the amparo trial promoted by both will have to continue without those elements. This in turn keeps the arrest warrants in force.
It should be remembered that the FGR holds Emilio Lozoya and his relatives responsible for using a network of companies and bank accounts to hide money that presumably came from bribes received by the former pemex director to favor suppliers with contracts, including Odebrecht.
So far both Lozoya and his wife are fugitives from justice and presumably outside Mexico. The one who is linked to prosecution and in house prison is Gilda Margarita. This after being extradited from Germany where she was arrested.
