A new accusation of alleged diversions of more than 46 million pesos falls on Morena’s candidate for governor of Yucatán, Joaquín Díaz Mena. The Superior Audit of the Federation (ASF) would have discovered that these deviations occurred during Díaz Mena’s management as a federal official during 2020-2023 with resources that should have been allocated to the poorest population of Yucatán, but that, through four companies, said funds would have been diverted.

According to reports, the ASF would have detected the issuance of 380 contracts awarded directly, many of them to four companies owned by businessmen who previously financed Joaquín Díaz Mena’s campaigns.

Díaz Mena, then delegate of the Ministry of Welfare in Yucatán, would have awarded more than 46 million pesos to companies whose partners have been identified by the Tax Administration Service (SAT) for carrying out simulated operations.

These companies would have invoiced more than 13.6 million pesos, between 2020 and 2023, to the agency headed by Huacho Díaz, for the rental of tents, chairs, and tables used in different municipalities of Yucatán for social programs, such as providing pensions for people with different abilities. , as well as brochures and formats for senior programs, as established in the invoices themselves.

It should be noted that in 2023, another alleged deviation was revealed during Joaquín Díaz Mena’s management as a federal official. On that occasion, contracts from the federal Sembrando Vida program for more than 738 million pesos were delivered directly to the Realza company. In 2019, said the company had already been identified by the SAT as having links to a company listed as a “ghost”, called Edificadora Líder Mexyuc.

This statement is added to the one made recently by Bayardo Ojeda Marrufo, candidate for local deputy for the Green Ecologist Party of Mexico, before the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office in the Fight against Corruption of Yucatán and before the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) of the Government of Mexico, against Díaz Mena.

The complaint is to investigate the exorbitant and inexplicable growth that his assets have had in the last 12 years, since from having a social interest house in Mérida, valued at less than a million pesos, today Díaz Mena owns houses, lands, and ranches whose combined value exceeds 46 million pesos, and which would have been impossible to acquire with the salary he had as a public servant.
