Mexican Speaker of the House Ruth Zavaleta has called for Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mourino to resign, saying he showed moral and ethical lapses by signing government contracts as an agent of his family’s business. Zavaleta’s opposition Party of the Democratic Revolution has said Mourino violated the law when he signed the contracts with the state oil company from 2000 to 2004 while a lawmaker and later an aide in the Energy Ministry. “Ethically and morally, regardless of whether there is an investigation or not, he should resign,” Zavaleta told reporters.
