( – The Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador accused the U.S. State Department of perpetuating “lies” with their claims about Mexico’s human rights record.

In a new State Department report which was released on Monday, Obrador noted that this was just how “they are” and said that it was “not worth getting angry about.” He then proceeded to call out the U.S. for allegedly trying to appear and act as if they are “the government of the world.” He added that they were “lying” about the situation in Mexico.

The U.S. State Department recently warned that the crime rates in Mexico had widely been increasing. They proceeded to note that most of the major violent crimes were committed by gangs and traffickers who were never punished or prosecuted for their crimes.

The report also cited “credible reports” in Mexico which disclose a number of killings made for no reason by the police, military and other officials while also claiming that security forces employed torture methods.

Another key point addressed in the report was the general lack of protection that members of the press got in the country, and even noted that oftentimes journalists were “killed or subjected to physical and cyberattacks, harassment and intimidation (especially by state agents and transnational criminal organizations).”

In other reports cited it also becomes apparent that the levels of corruption in the country are still high, pointing out the probe into a pharmaceutical bid process with the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks which eventually led to 32 officials facing detention.
