translated from Spanish: Due to lack of attendees, deputies postpone discussion of immunity to Toledo and Saul Huerta

The Investigative Section of the Chamber of Deputies suspended the meeting where the draft opinions were to be discussed and voted on to disapprove legislators Benjamín Saúl Huerta Corona, accused of rape and sexual abuse of minors, and Mauricio Alonso Toledo Gutiérrez, accused of alleged illicit enrichment.
This is due to the lack of the legal quorum scheduled at 5 p.m. on June 30, despite the fact that the modality was remote.
“The Investigative Section is made up of three legislators and the president legislator, so the attendance of at least three members is essential to meet,” the Chamber of Deputies explained in a statement.

The only deputies who attended the meeting were Morena legislators Martha Patricia Ramirez Lucero and Pablo Gomez Alvarez, secretary and president, respectively.
While deputy Claudia Pastor Badillo, of the PRI; and Mary Carmen Bernal Martinez, of the PT, did not attend.
“The president of the Section anticipated that he will again issue a call for a meeting at an upcoming date, in order to resolve the agenda that has remained pending,” the Chamber said.

Last April, the Mexico City Prosecutor’s Office formally asked the Chamber of Deputies to strip benjamín Saúl Huerta, a legislator accused of rape and sexual abuse against two minors, of immunity.
For Toledo, the Prosecutor’s Office applied the same procedure since January 2021, seeking to arrest him for alleged illicit enrichment, since it identified an unjustified and inexplicable increase in his assets.
