Sedena Official Denial

The Social Communication Office of the National Defense reported that General Luis Cresencio Sandoval closed his social media accounts in 2023 and currently does not have profiles in socio-digital media.

This clarification was made through Infodemia, an initiative of the Public Broadcasting System of the Mexican State, which published the official denial in X.

La Sedena highlighted that the account is apocryphal and that the messages do not reflect the institutional position of General Sandoval.

Details of Fake Messages

The fake messages, posted on an X account under the name @Luis_C_Sandoval, began with a message that highlighted the importance of the elections on June 2 as a “crucial moment in the history of Mexico.”

These messages urged citizens to act in defense of democracy and the Constitution, falsely attributing them to General Sandoval.

Background of the Fake Account

In February 2023, the newspaper La Jornada reported that General Luis Cresencio Sandoval had decided to close his account at X for no apparent reason.

This account, which used to be authentic, had been used by the general to communicate relevant information, such as his infection with COVID-19 in February 2021.

However, the account was closed and any recent activity on it is attributed to impersonation.

Legal actions

Sedena has announced that it will take legal action against those responsible for the apocryphal account and the comments published in it.

The institution stressed that these messages seek to “generate confusion and controversy in public opinion” and completely distanced itself from them.

Impact on the Electoral Context

This incident occurs at a delicate time, a few days before the June 2 elections. The spread of false messages attributed to senior military commanders has the potential to affect public perception and confidence in the electoral process.

Sedena and other authorities are taking measures to ensure that misinformation does not interfere with the conduct of free and fair elections.
