Merida denied allegations that the case was political, claiming that corruption must be fought wherever it comes from.

“We are dealing with a corruption network and as long as it exists we are not talking about political undertones. Any political deal can hold up (to the lawsuit) and that won’t change the nature of the investigation, ”he said.
