Mexican Supreme Court Overturns AMLO’s Decree on Transparency
By THE PULSE NEWS MEXICO STAFF
Mexico’s Supreme Court late Wednesday, Dec. 14, overturned part of Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s (AMLO) presidential degree making all his administration’s megaprojects immune to public scrutiny.
In response to a legal challenge filed by Mexico’s National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal, a Supreme Court judge ordered the partial suspension of the decree that had declared all projects of the federal government as matters of national security and immune to transparency regulations.
As a result of the ruling, the federal government will not be able hide information that is requested about projects it carries out.
The suspension is effective immediately.
