Here is an excerpt from my most recent article on MexiData.info:
"All Mexican elected officials, including the president, legislators, governors and mayors, enjoy the privilege of immunity from having criminal charges brought against them while in office. This is called fuero ("procedural immunity" in this case), although the term is also used for freedom of speech protections granted to members of Congress. However, if an elected official does commit a crime, there is a process in place by which the Mexican Congress can have this immunity removed, and it’s called desafuero. This process is usually quite slow, and can sometimes take years to resolve. Perhaps this is why it’s been so rare—until now."
