translated from Spanish: Mauricio Toledo asks Congress for leave; be consistent, says Prosecutor General’s Office

Legislator Mauricio Toledo asked the Chamber of Deputies for an indefinite leave of absence from the post of federal deputy, prior to the vote on his immunity.
In a document addressed to the president of the Board of Directors, Dulce María Sauri Riancho, the deputy says that he believes “in justice, but the conditions imposed on me, with authorities that do not guarantee impartial and fair treatment as established by our laws, I am forced to make this decision.”

I’m not afraid to face justice “I’m innocent.” Today I applied for indefinite leave to remove myself from office as a federal deputy. “The truth always prevails before impartial authorities.”

In accordance with the provisions of Article 13 of the Rules of Procedure of the Chamber of Deputies, he asked Sauri Riancho that his request be submitted to the plenary of Congress for consideration.

“An honest servant does not flee or hide”: Prosecutor’s Office to Toledo
The Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City (FGJCDMX) responded to Deputy Toledo on social networks that “if it is his will to appear before the justice and conduct himself with the truth, we urge him that once the origin of withdrawing his ilaw is declared, he should appear before the judge.”
The agency asked him to be “consistent with what was stated in his license application” and to appear before the authorities to present the arguments and evidence of his innocence.

Be consistent with what is stated in your license application. An honest public servant does not flee or hide, he appears before the judicial authority and exposes the arguments and evidence of his innocence
