President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured that there are already witnesses to the theft of oncological drugs that occurred in the warehouse of a pharmaceutical company located in the Iztapalapa mayor’s office in Mexico City.
At a press conference, the president was asked if the almost 38 thousand medicines for cancer they were insured, which he does not know.
“They were able to buy medicines, I don’t know if they were assured, today we are going to report on this. What I can tell you is that it was difficult for us to get it, they were brought from Argentina, and the medicines were stolen, “he said in his morning lecture.
According to the president “There are already witnesses”, who saw that the robbery was even with trailers.

The theft, which occurred at dawn on Sunday, October 4, was denounced by the guard of the place on the 5th, a day later.
According to the investigation initiated by the Public Ministry attached to the Territorial Investigation Prosecutor’s Office in Iztapalapa, several men with their faces covered would have arrived at the warehouse where the medicines were kept, located in the Santa Isabel Industrial neighborhood, Iztapalapa mayor’s office, where they threatened employees to carry out the theft.
López Obrador criticized the publications that indicate a delay in issuing the theft alert.
“All these conservative newspapers and opponents of us are even questioning whether or not the drugs were stolen, implying that the best we invented this … they are very bad people,” he accused.
