After a stopover in Canada, the extradited former PEMEX chief landed in Mexico at 46 minutes after midnight, where there began a media blitz of images and video footage of a convoy traveling to a Mexico City Prison.
However, the Attorney General’s Office transferred Emilio Lozoya to a hospital to be treated for anemia, esophagus problems and “general weakness”.
According to officials from the Federal Government and the Federal JudicialAgencies, the former director of Pemex was not in the convoy that this morning that traveled from the FGR hangar at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) to the North Prison, apparently as a decoy.
Lozoya was never admitted to the prison and rather was transferred directly from the AICM to the hospital. Meaning the press followed the convoy of four trucks assuming they were escorting Lozoya.
Here is the word:
“The FGR medical expert carried out the corresponding physical and medical review of Lozoya and found he had developed anemia and painful esophagus problems, as well as general overall weakness, for which he was admitted to a hospital.” Said the A.G.
“The family was given permission that a private doctor also examined Lozoya, which the same diagnosis was made. Due to these facts, the Federal Public Ministry ordered his transfer to a hospital, where he will remain as detained under strict police surveillance. “
