The Baja California Congress entered a lawsuit against 21 assemblymembers of the XXII Legislature, as well as three former mayors of the State. The lawsuit, which was received in the Official Party Office after complying with the healthy distance protocol established for a small group of people to enter the facilities of the Baja California Legislative Power building, is signed by Blanca Terrazas Alcalá, Alma Rocío Magaña Sarabia, Miguel Ángel García Leyva, and Armando Salinas Bravo. Upon receiving the document, the complainants were warned that it will be processed as of June 1, as this is the date on which the Legislative Branch is expected to resume work, due to the restrictions put in place because of the pandemic.
The document establishes the formal complaint against citizens Nereida Fuentes González, Mirna Cecilia Rincón Vargas and Marco Antonio Novelo Osuna, who served as presidents of the XXII City Council of Tecate, Playas de Rosarito and Ensenada, respectively.
Regarding the accused assemblymembers who made up the XXII Legislature, they are the following: Rocío López Gorosave, Iraís Vásquez Aguiar, Victoria Bentley Duarte, Alfa Peñaloza Valdez, Mónica Hernández Álvarez, Trinidad Vaca Chacón, Blanca Ríos López, Claudia Agatón Muñiz, Raúl Castañeda Pomposo, Carlos Torres Torres, Alejandro Arregui Ibarra, Bernardo Padilla Muñoz, Ignacio García Dworak, Marco Corona Bolaños Cacho, Job Montoya Gaxiola, Catalino Zavala Márquez, Víctor Manuel Morán Hernández, José Antonio Casas del Real, José Félix Arango, Sergio Tolento Hernández and Edgar Gómez Macías
The reason for the lawsuit is the approval of the local Constitutional Reform to make possible the extension of the mandate for the Baja California governorship, and for this reason, they request that the aforementioned former officials be disabled, in accordance with the Law on the Responsibilities of Public Servants of the State.
