More scandal in Coahuila: Did Moreira hold back funds for security?

More trouble still: Ex-Governor Humberto Moreira Valdés of Coahuila was now also denounced by the Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública (SESNSP), an organ of the Interior Ministry, to the Superior Auditor for allegedly having held back federal funds for security destined for several Coahuila mayors.

The mayors of Torreón, Acuña and Monclova denied yesterday that they had ever complained of this, though according to SESNSP they had earlier complained of just that.

Esthela Damián, PRD federal deputy and head of the chamber's  Comisión de Vigilancia de la Auditoría Superior de la Federación is demanding an extraordinary audit. The head of PRI's parliamentary group Francisco Rojas said the Moreira's opponents were "putting together a barrage of attacks with half-truths," not exactly a forceful response.

Even the influential Joaquín López-Dóriga, ever close to power and usually well in the know, asks in today's column, entitled "Falsifying Documents," "How will everyone come out of this?"
