Morelos prosecutor Uriel “N,” who remains in the maximum security prison in the highlands, has received two protections from federal judges against new arrest warrants.
It was the courts of the Sixth and Eighth Districts in Amparo and federal cases in Edomex that granted interim and full suspensions to prevent new arrest, location, search, summons and production orders from being executed against them.
Judge Enrique Vázquez of the Sixth Court granted the interim stay so that “in the event that the crime for which the requested arrest warrant was issued justifies preventive detention, it will continue to be available to the Amparo Court after the arrest of the applicant.” “in the place where he is detained, as far as his personal freedom is concerned, and is available to the judge of the case for the continuation of the proceedings.”
In the event that the crime does not justify preventive detention, the prosecutor may not be deprived of his personal freedom until the relevant final suspension is decided, but the proceedings against him will not be paralyzed, according to national media.
Although the protection granted by the Eighth Court relates to torture or enforced disappearance, these effects no longer arise if they exist within prison.
“Similarly, those responsible are obliged to ensure that, in the event that Uriel Carmona Gándara has been arrested for the commission of a crime and is at the disposal of the Ministry of State, he clarifies his legal situation within a period of forty eight hours in accordance with Article 16 of our Fundamental Charter or ninety-six hours in organized crime cases, counting from the moment they were made available to you, that is, you dispose of your freedom or hand over authority to the competent court,” the agreement says.
It should be recalled that the prosecutor was arrested for three crimes: delaying justice, cover-up by favoritism and femicide, as an assistant; He was ordered released for the first two crimes, but he remains in preventive detention for the third. In all three cases he was involved in proceedings.
