Mexico City.- The National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI) reported that this afternoon it received from the Presidency of the Republic the report on the theft of data from journalists covering the conferences of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Through its X account, the guarantor body indicated that, in accordance with the regulations, it will carry out the corresponding investigation.
“The expert areas of the Institute will analyze the reports received to determine compliance with obligations that include detailed detail on the improper processing of data and the sanctions imposed by law for these cases.
“The INAI will review the information in accordance with the current legal framework and with complete impartiality, and will determine the necessary actions to protect personal data, seeking to mitigate the effects of improper disclosure of personal data,” he said.
Jesús Ramírez, spokesperson for the Presidency, confirmed this January 29 that the case points to a former Government employee.
At the conference, it was explained that, according to the first investigations, there was illicit access to said data using a username and password used by a former official.
The name of said former employee was not revealed nor to what area he was assigned, but Ramírez confirmed that he left the federal Administration “less than two years ago.”
