Three Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) deputies filed a lawsuit to bring former Morelos Governor Graco Ramírez Garrido to trial over the sinkhole that occurred in the Paso Exprés in Cuernavaca, Morelos in which two people lost their lives.
Deputies Matías Nazario Morales, Rosalina Mazari Espín and Manuel Vallejo Barragán submitted evidence to the General Secretary of the lower chamber of deputies.
Nazario Morales said that there is evidence that Ramírez Garrido acted with negligence.
“We provided certified tweets that prove that Graco Ramírez was was involved in political activities in the state of Nuevo León within hours after the accident took place,” said Nazario Morales.
Mazari Espín said that when civil protection services showed up to the scene of the accident, they didn’t have the appropriate equipment, which shows negligence by Ramírez Garrido. According to Vallejo Barragán, civil protection services should have acted immediately and that falls under Ramírez Garrido’s responsibilities.
The deputies warned Ramírez Garrido that he will be held responsible if they or their families should fall victims to any sort of intimidation.
