“Honorable Minister: Speedy and speedy justice”, he repeatedly shouted outside the Supreme Court of the Nation (SCJN), Ana Paula, Alonso and Gonzalo Castillo Cuevaso, the three children of Alejandra Cuevas (68 years old, Mexico City), who has been in prison for more than a year for the murder of the brother of Alejandro Gertz Manero, Attorney General of the Republic.

On November 11, three magistrates were about to pronounce the verdict on his case, giving high chances of the accused‘s release. But on Monday night the 9th, things changed: The Federal Judicial Council informed Alejandra’s family that on the instructions of the Mexican prosecutor, her case had been sent to court to be resolved there.

Alonso Castillo then commented infobae The reason they gave him is that the prosecutor”Alejandro Gertz Manero requests the power of attraction of justice to the Supreme Court of the nation, which would delay the process of my mother in prison, risking her own life, as well as that of my entire family”.

Alejandra herself sent a message to Minister Zaldivar in which she explains that she experienced for the first time the extinction of laws and rights “,”Since it is not only the Attorney General of the Republic who committed crimes against me, but also the police, public ministries, who lied to the judges to obtain fraudulent offers.“Begging the Court” to put an end to this legal, moral and ethical tyranny.

Since the end of October 2020, Alejandra Cuevas has been lodged in the Santa Martha Acetitla prison Accused of murder due to lapse in care of Federico Gertz, The sentimental partner of his mother Laura Moran, who is 94 years old. He was sentenced with a formal prison order, as confirmed last February by the Fourth Criminal Chamber of Mexico City’s Superior Court of Justice. The arguments with which the said sentence was issued referred to Alejandra as Federico’s guarantor, that is, the one who was in charge of their care. But the only one to play that role was his mother, Laura.,

This was considered by the Fifth District Judge of Amparo in Criminal Cases in what is now Mexico City, Patricia Díaz, noting that the arguments of the Fourth Chamber considered Alejandra Cuevas to be Federico Gertz Manero’s guarantor, were inconsistent with the testimony and evidence that was presented to justice, Then, roughly mid-September, he was granted an injunction that rescinded the arrest warrants against him and his mother. However, in late September, the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), headed by Alejandro Gertz Manero, challenged the appeal.

And it was this protection that Juan José Olvera López, Horacio Armando Hernández Orozco and Francisco Javier Sarabia Asencio, magistrates of the First Collegiate Court of Criminal Cases of the First Circuit of Mexico City, would discuss on November 11, which was attracted by SCJN.

Alejandra Cuevas’s defense claimed that this change of course in the case was unacceptable, stating that Alejandro Gertz Manero is the party to accuse as an individual, that is, without the character of the prosecutor. Further, the protection provided to the accused is of an indirect nature. And finally, they point out, since it is a condition of a special nature, it is not of any importance to be treated in court.

The brother of the Mexican prosecutor died in September 2015. The autopsy practically pointed to the deterioration of his health as the cause of death., But Alejandro Gertz Manero accused Laura Moran – a partner of her brother for nearly five decades and then 88 years old – and his daughter Alejandra of murder because of a lapse of care for Federico.

The complaint was filed twice by the Justice of Mexico City. On both occasions it was concluded that there were no elements to evidence the responsibility of Laura Moran and Alejandra Cuevas in the death of Federico. But in 2020, after Alejandro Gertz Manero was appointed in charge of the Attorney General’s office, the case took a radical turn: The trial went ahead and charges were re-opened. Criminal action was taken on 25 September and arrest warrants were issued against both of them on 2 October., Alejandra Cuevas was arrested on October 16, 2020.

practically, Alejandra has been indicted for not attending Federico Gertz Manero while her health is deteriorating, However, for a person to be convicted of murder by omission, it must be proved that he was the guarantor of the victim, that is, in charge of his care. in this matter, that role was played only by Laura Morano Joe, within his capabilities and with the help of the health workers he had hired, took Federico for consultation and bought the prescribed medicines according to the statements of him and the witnesses.

It is important to note that, in order to charge the guarantor, the possibility of rescue must be taken into account. It refers to the physical possibility to act in the moment of danger. Laura Moran was 88 at the time,

Federal Judge Patricia Marcella Diaz, who granted Alejandra the emparo, The allegation against him is believed to be full of discrepancies., noting that there are no elements that identify him as the guarantor of the late Federico; There is evidence that, on the contrary, they provided him with the care he deserved; Only the prosecution’s charges were taken into account for sentencing, ignoring the defense’s attempts to present their contradictory evidence.

The SCJN indicated that once the presiding minister, Arturo Zaldivar, supported the above appeal request, it was submitted for the consideration of other ministers, who are members of the full court, to bring the case to review the emparoos of the accused. agreed to.
