TULUM, Q.Roo. – Developers continue to destroy a large section of coastal area outside Tulum despite a closure seal put in place by the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa).
Profepa shut down the illegal construction earlier this month due to environmental damage; however, a recent tour of the Tulum-Boca Paila area revealed the closure tape had been moved and construction resumed.
The closure seal, which was put in place on December 7 by Profepa, has been moved, an act that is considered a federal offense. Developers have challenged federal authorities by ignoring the closure seal to bring in heavy machinery which is being used to make large holes to serve as the cement base for a new fence being built around the perimeter of the property.
Upon inspection, Profepa officials also also saw workers continuing to destroy the land by removing plants and vegetation.
Javier Flores Flores, an engineer with Profepa, says that moving the closure seal from the south fence to the far north fence is a federal violation. He says it also demonstrates favors and blatant corruption since the seal was moved without incident. According to Flores, the act was committed by the same federal authorities that put the seal in place.
