Mexican authorities have requested that a federal judge in Mexico jail 31 prominent Mexican scientists. They are facing charges of money laundering and organized crime as part of an ongoing dispute between the government of the left and top universities and academics of the country.

The judge rejected twice the request to imprison the scientists because the attorney general’s Office hasn’t provided enough evidence. The government announced Wednesday that it will resubmit the request to arrest.
