In Mexico, former Pemex chief denies allegations
Former Pemex Chief Executive Officer Emilio Lozoya denied media reports that he received $10 million in an alleged bribery scheme involving Brazilian construction company Odebrecht in Mexico.
“I have never participated in acts of corruption. These publications have lied repeatedly on this and other issues, and have never proven their allegations,” Lozoya said in an emailed response to questions. “I categorically deny the charges and the information that refers to alleged acts of request and/or acceptance of bribes directly or indirectly on my part from Odebrecht or its officials.”
