"Greg" Sánchez case: PRD wants political trial against Gómez Mont and Chávez Chávez

Given the freeing of PRD's ex-gubernatorial candidate in Quintana Roo, Gregorio "Greg" Sánchez, after charges of collusion with drug trafficking were dropped, the PRD will push for a political trial of then-interior secretary Fernando Gómez Mont, and then-Attorney General  Arturo Chávez Chávez, accusing them of having launched the operation against Sánchez for political reasons.

As PRD president Jesús Zambrano pointed out that in 15 months, the attorney general's (PGR) office was unable to find any evidence for the charges. Sánchez was, however, immediately rearrested, yet now on money laundering charges. Zambrano called for the current attorney general, Marisela Morales Ibáñez, to "not fall in the same factious attitude" as her predecessors.

It seems to me quite remarkable that in 15 months, the PGR has nothing on Greg for what he was originally arrested for. Will this end as yet another Michoacanazo?
