A federal judge of the State of Mexico granted two definitive suspensions, one that prevents the cancellation of the construction of the new airport in Texcoco and the other against the Federal Revenue Law, particularly for fiscal years 2015 to 2018.
The Eighth District Judge based in the State of Mexico issued the resolutions, the details of the scope can not yet be known because the engroses of their rulings have not been published. What it does make clear is that the suspensions prevent the cancellation of the work in Texcoco and against the application of the mentioned statute.
Some of the injunctions presented, are against the use and increase in the airport use tax because this tax was used to finance Texcoco’s project, and now, with the Santa Lucía airport project, they are seeking not to be charged and the resources not to be used for works at Military Air Base number 1, in Santa Lucía, State of Mexico.
The organizations that make up the class action lawsuit #NoMásDerroches promoted 147 demands for protection, of which, up to this moment with the new resolutions, seven suspensions have been granted. In the resolutions, the Collegiate Courts have ordered that the construction of the new airport at the Military Air Base be halted until the environmental impact studies have been completed; the National Institute of Anthropology and History authorize it; and that security studies be delivered.
They also demanded the preservation of the progress of the Texcoco airport works initiated by the administration of former President Enrique Peña Nieto. The lawsuits were filed in eight entities of the country: Mexico City, State of Mexico, Jalisco, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Morelos, Quintana Roo and San Luis Potosi.
The objective of these social and business organizations is to cancel the Santa Lucía project and resume the work of the Texcoco NAIM, because according to the judges, the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador has not proved beyond reasonable doubt that it complies with technical feasibility studies, economic, legal, aeronautical, environmental, among others. In addition, the decision to cancel the airport in Texcoco is not justified and implies a waste of public resources.
Although this decision can be challenged by the Executive or annulled if the documents requested by the judge are presented, it is a partial victory that lays the groundwork to strengthen the rest of the trials, said Gerardo Carrasco, lawyer for “Mexicans against Corruption”.
“If the government moves a brick, they will be committing a crime,” he said.
