Pemex granted two week postponement in Emilio case

Mexico City, Mexico — A federal judge has postponed the hearing of Emilio L, the former director of Pemex. The hearing was postponed after Pemex asked for more time to to analyze the proposal for a reparation agreement made by the defense.

The reparation agreement would mean that the former director would commit to payments in excess of $10 million for the Odebrech and Agronitrogenados case. The repayment would also include the return of at least five properties.

In January of this year, the Attorney General’s Office requested a prison term of 39 years for Emilo L. They asked for 15 years for money laundering, 14 years for bribery and another 10 for criminal association.

The request for conviction came after three high-ranking Odebrecht officials declared that Emilio L received millions in bribes when he headed Pemex to assign contracts to the Brazilian company at the Tula refinery, Hidalgo.

The judge granted Pemex a 15-day extension.
