Although the name of the defense is not specified, it should be remembered that in June 2020 the lawyer Javier Coello Trejo reported that due to differences over the defense strategy, he would stop representing Emilio Lozoya Austin.
Through a statement, the lawyer affirmed that the decision was made in agreement with the former director of Pemex, after the latter presented a letter to the Spanish Court in which he agreed to be extradited to Mexico to be tried by the Agronitrogenados case and by Odebrecht.
Did Lozoya request an injunction to get out of prison?
At the end of May this year, a federal court admitted for processing a new amparo lawsuit from the former director of Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), Emilio Lozoya Austin, against the preventive detention imposed on him for the Odebrecht case.
However, although the appeal was admitted for processing, the Unitary Court did not grant Lozoya Austin the suspension, because his defense argued that he did not request it, in addition to the fact that it is not appropriate to order it informally.
It should be remembered that at the end of April it emerged that Lozoya Austin, a prisoner in the North Recluseresorted to the protection of justice against the judgment of April 6 of the Third Unitary Court in Criminal Matters, which confirmed the precautionary measure of justified preventive detention issued by Judge José Artemio Zúñiga Mendoza, in his resolution of January 26, 2022 .
