Ricardo Anaya alleges surveillance is part of pattern of espionage against opponents of current president Enrique Peña Nieto
A Mexican presidential candidate has accused the country’s intelligence service of surveilling his campaign – part of a pattern of alleged espionage against opponents of the current president Enrique Peña Nieto and his embattled administration.
Ricardo Anaya, the likely candidate for a right-left coalition, posted a tweet on Tuesday showing him confronting a person following him in a Jeep. After an awkward handshake, the driver readily identified himself as working for “Cisen”, Mexican intelligence. He said he was following Anaya “so that there’s no problem”.
