In the style of the Venezuelan regime, Andrés Manuel López Obrador will expropriate 198 privately owned properties to construct the Mayan Train in Quintana Roo.
(QUINTANA ROO – SEDATU) The Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu) declared of public utility the development of the Mayan Train in the municipalities of Benito Juarez, Solidaridad, and Puerto Morelos in Quintana Roo. Furthermore, to construct such a project, they seek to confiscate 198 privately owned properties, comprising an area of 2,410,107.72 square meters.
“The properties referred to in the preceding paragraphs are appropriate and suitable for the construction and integral operation of the Mayan Train Project. Therefore it is necessary to expropriate the privately owned properties located on the surface of Section 5 North,” SEDATU explained.
According to Article 27 of the Constitution, “the ownership of the lands and waters included within the limits of the national territory corresponds originally to the Nation, which has the right to transfer the domain of the same to individuals, constituting private property and that expropriations may happen for reasons of public utility and through compensation.”
A decree published in the morning edition of the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF) indicated that the topographic plans of the required real estate would be immediately available to all individuals and companies accredited by Sedatu for the development of one of the federal government’s stars projects.
Sedatu itself will have to personally notify the owners of each property of the resolution. If this information is ignored, a second publication must be made in the Official Gazette. The interested parties will have a term of 15 days from the second notification to provide Sedatu with prove of their property rights.
The expropriation in Quintana Roo to comply with Lopez Obrador’s whim is reminiscent of those carried out by Hugo Chávez in Venezuela, who initiated the socialist revolution by confiscating thousands of companies and properties, including assets of multinationals. It is worth remembering that in February 2014, the Venezuelan president threatened businessmen who did not “respect the new Law of Fair Prices” with measures such as the expropriation of their properties.
In Mexico, under AMLO’s government, we are closer to the “Venezuelanization” every day.
