Gertz Manero, the porcelain prosecutor

Just as President López Portillo named Javier Coello Trejo, according to his words, from Coello not from López Portillo, the iron prosecutor, I have no other merits than to be up-to-date on my tax returns and payment —which is no small thing— I am going to appoint Alejandro Gertz Manero, “the porcelain prosecutor.” This material is made from, among other things, the most expensive vases in the world.

The name comes to the case first, because this week one of the issues discussed by the media has been the alleged and burdensome assets of the Attorney General of the Republic, which transfigures him into a being of great economic value. Second, because it has become a classic of the 4T, to label those dysfunctional officials whose task within the government is reduced to only decorating as a “vase”.

It has been said that the head of the FGR, acquired in 2014 and 2015, 122 luxury cars with a value of 109 million 775,339.30 million pesos, mostly Mercedes Benz, in addition to a Rolls-Roice – with this vehicle don Alejandro, 82, feels identified because he is perfectly finished.

The same day that the news appeared, there was a denial from the Financial Intelligence Unit in which it was clarified that the agency had not issued any statement regarding the number of cars and the personal fortune of Gertz Manero. The truth is that it seemed ironic to me that the Attorney General of the Republic had more four-wheelers than the cars that he has presented for process binding.

I can’t imagine the space it takes to park 122 cars, let alone wash them, pay for the car and maintain them. Assuming that this were the case, it would be one of the reasons why Don Alejandro, according to what a lawyer friend of mine told me, attends very little or almost never at his offices in the Public Prosecutor’s Office. Imagine that he had so many cars and that every morning, with the intention of leaving for work, he began to choose among the cluster of carriages in which of them he was going to go to his office. When he finished calling the 122 units and had already designated the one in which he was going to travel, he would look at his watch and realize that at that time there should no longer be anyone in the Prosecutor’s Office. “I will go tomorrow after there is no urgent work, most of the characters to whom arrest warrants must be issued are outside of Mexico” —he would say—.

But I do not want to let the occasion pass without saying that the prosecutor who is slow with regard to his obligations to citizenship, is quick to take personal revenge, to that is the answer to the litigation to recover bank accounts and assets of his brother Federico, La complaint del The prosecutor is against Laura Morán, 94, who is on the run, and her daughter Laura Cuevas, currently a prisoner, both accused by Gertz Manero of homicide for not having provided the care that her 85-year-old brother required, which is why which, according to the porcelain prosecutor, his brother died.

I take this opportunity to bring here what was stated by the journalist Anabel Hernández regarding that in the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) with the consent of the prosecutor, seven people close to Genaro García Luna and his gang work, which is why before Mexico were the files prosecuted, to apprehend Luis Cárdenas Palomino and Ramón Pequeno, they received a whistle that made them flee to the United States where, to their surprise, they were caught. It was the gringos who put Cárdenas Palomino and Pequeno in jail, although they should have put the latter in a nursery because of his last name.
