Mexico already has detainees for migrant shelter fire

Mexico City, Mar 29 (Prensa Latina) Mexico's Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard announced today that there are already detainees for the fire in a migrant shelter that caused the death of 38 foreigners and serious injuries to 29 others.

According to the Secretary, who went to Ciudad de Juarez to inspect the establishment of the National Institute of Migration (INM), where occupants set fire to mattresses in a protest, those directly responsible have been presented to the local prosecutor’s office.

Ebrard expressed in social networks that according to what we have been informed by these agencies, those directly responsible for the events appeared before the Attorney General’s Office.

He reported that contact was established with Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Venezuela to inform them of the tragedy that occurred in Ciudad Juarez and to support their consulates to help victims and affected families.

I conveyed Mexico’s deep indignation for what happened and the will of the Government and people to clarify the facts and punish those responsible’, he added.

He said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested the Ministry of the Interior and the INM the necessary information to share it with the aforementioned brother countries and added that what happened is a great sadness.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador returned to the subject on Wednesday in his morning press conference, in which he explained that the investigations are in the hands of the Attorney General’s Office.

He criticized the right-wing press that raises alarms without having all the details of the event and ignores the professional investigations that are being carried out regarding the unfortunate event.

The governor insisted that in the background is the issue of the desperation of the people to leave their countries because the causes of the exodus are not attacked as they should be, which, although it has decreased somewhat, is maintained in many countries of the region.

He said that the Secretary of Security, Icela Rodriguez, will be in charge of informing and that innocent people will not be blamed, he assured.
