Head of Sedena rejects meeting with deputies; quotes them

The Secretary of National Defense, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, decided not to go to the Chamber of Deputies to the meeting to which the National Defense Commission had summoned him to deal with the hacking that the Guacamaya group made to the military dependency.
Instead, the general summoned the legislators to a meeting in his office on October 18, members of the National Defense Commission confirmed to Animal Político.
The deputies are looking for Sandoval to give explanations about the hack, in which Guacamaya extracted six terabytes of information.

The National Defense Commission is chaired by Ricardo Villarreal, a legislator from the PAN, a party that represents the second political force in San Lázaro after Morena.

Emilio Álvarez Icaza, senator of the so-called Plural Group, published a message on Twitter in which he criticized Sandoval’s position of not going to the Chamber but summoning the deputies in his office. For Álvarez Icaza, this is ours that the military will not be accountable to civilian bodies.

For those who naively believe that the @SEDENAmx will accept accountability to the civil power, deputies summoned @Luis_C_Sandoval to San Lázaro.
The general told them that if they want to talk to him it will be in their offices and summoned them on the 18th at 10:30 a.m.
And they will go. Sandoval rules.

AMLO confirmed hacking of sedena
On Friday, September 30, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador confirmed that the hack had been carried out, although he sought to minimize the fact under the argument that the extracted information is “in the public domain.”

Among the emails and documents obtained by the hacktivist group, which has given access to some media, there are reports on the state of health of López Obrador himself, intelligence reports about possible links of Guerrero politicians with drug traffickers and data from various activities of the Sedena.
Yesterday, Animal Político published that Sedena and the National Intelligence Center (CNI) agreed to promote a reform to include in the Federal Criminal Code a prison sentence for those who access and know national security information without having prior authorization.
Questioned about this hack, President López Obrador has ruled out that there will be an investigation against officials responsible for allowing the cyberattack and has insisted that the disclosure of the Sedena documents does not impact his administration.
