The factual use of the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Treasury also affects institutions, as seen in its attempt to involve INE officials in imaginary illegal operations.
It is about undermining confidence in the authority in charge of the stupid consultation that the lopezobradorismo wants to impose as a “trial of former presidents” and who knows if it will attract the 37 million 411 thousand citizens required at least to be binding (in June 16.7 million voted for Morena and with its allies it reached just over 25).
Peniley Ramírez discovered that the FIU was investigating counselor Ciro Murayama, his wife, artist Lila Downs and others for the sale of a two-bedroom apartment to buy a house whose seller was also “vetted.”
The columnist published that the National Banking Commission sent two requests from the FIU to the banks to deliver the “financial movements, credits and transactions of all of them and of Farah Munayer, Murayama’s advisor” and wife of René Miranda, director of the Federal Register Electors, and that among those investigated was his sister, his mother, a collaborator and a graphic designer who bought a piece of land from them in 2019.
For the author of Linotipia, “the origin of the investigation seems to be, formally, in that at some point in the last seven years they sold or bought a property.”
Murayama told him that it looked like “political persecution” (he and Lorenzo Córdova have been crucified in the morning).
The head of the FIU, Santiago Nieto, tweeted: False that he has instructed an investigation vs. Murayama or Downs. There was a requirement as part of the PEPs risk model that applies to all authorities that has been canceled but, Peniley pointed out, “some readers felt that the positioning belied the story and others believed that it confirmed it, as is often the case with strangers. confirmatory denials that are published almost every day from official sources of the obradorismo… ”.
Nieto confirmed the investigations but denied that Downs was included.
This Saturday, the journalist reported that the FIU considers the investigation canceled: a note “arrived at the banks on Tuesday, June 29, dated the day before (…). It had the same format as the request for financial investigation (…), but it instructed: It is requested to leave without effect and cancel the official letter (…) dated June 24, 2021, so the requested information should not be sent to this authority . The FIU thus withdrew from an investigation that, in response to my article, said that it did not exist (…). Again: no but yes, but not anymore… ”, comments Peniley, who concludes:
“I don’t know why the FIU started the investigation, why it said it hadn’t done it or why it canceled it. But I believe that the inquiry to a counselor of it is a matter of public interest… ”.
No wonder the FIU is seen as the goat horn of Q4. _
