This Tuesday, November 30, it transpired that a federal judge Yazmín Eréndira Ruiz ordered to suspend all arrest warrants that may exist against the former director of the Metro Line 12 Project, Enrique Horcasitas Manjarez.
According to what was determined by the judge of the Tenth District of Amparo in Criminal Matters, the provisional suspension was granted; However, the former collaborator of the Government of Mexico City must cover a 135,000 pesos guarantee to prevent the precautionary measure from losing effect.
Will be up next Monday, December 6 when the incidental hearing is held, at which point it will be decided whether to grant the final suspension to the arrest warrant.
Likewise, it was detailed that in the coming days that the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City (FGJCDMX) will proceed to initiate an impeachment trial, for the former civil servant and nine other people, for the crimes derived from the collapse of the Golden Line on May 3.
The judge’s determination came after the hearing took place where the capital’s prosecutor’s office tried to charge the former public official and nine other people for their alleged participation in the crimes of culpable homicide of 96 people, guilty injuries against 98 people, as well as property damage.
However, days later the defense of Horcasitas Manjarrez reported that he requested the protection of justice before any arrest warrant issued by a control judge of the Superior Court of Justice of CDMX.
However, on October 25, it was reported that the hearing was postponed until next Friday, December 3 Due to the fact that a copy of the investigation folder was not granted to the victims’ families and because Horcasitas did not attend due to symptoms of Covid-19.
It should be remembered that the alleged perpetrators indicated by the FGJCDMX are Enrique Horcasitas Manjarrez; Juan Antonio Giral and Mazón, former head of Civil Works Design; Moses Guerrero Ponce, former head of Civil Works Construction; Hector Rosas Troncoso, former deputy director of Civil Works “C”; Enrique Baker Diaz, former deputy director of structures; Guillermo Leonardo Alcazar Pancardo, former director responsible for works; Ricardo Perez Ruiz, former structural safety officer; Juan Carlos Ramos Alvarado, Resident of Work in Olivos-Tezonco section; Fernando Amezcua Ordaz, former general director of construction supervision; and Fernando Ramiro Lana, former director of work supervision coordination.
The name of Enrique Horcasitas Manjarrez has been highly named since the tragedy occurred at the Olivos and Tezonco stations, since during the Headquarters of the Government of the Federal District of Marcelo Ebrard, when the new route of the public transport system was inaugurated, the accused served as the general director of the Federal District Metro Project and of the Line 12.
However, his name already had a history within Mexican public opinion, since from 2002 to 2004 he served as deputy director of Development of the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism. While, from 2005 to 2007, he was director of New Project Development at Grupo Plance y Hoteleros.
However, in 2014, already in the government of Miguel Angel Mancera, the engineer by profession was removed from office because he was accused of being responsible for the first failures that were reported on the line that runs from Mixcoac to Tláhuac.
