The residents of Baca, Yucatán are demanding a sanction for the priest Gabriel Gamboa for lying about the INAH permits to make changes to the temple of the Immaculate Conception in that community.

“The priest Gabriel Gamboa Crespo lied when he said that he did have the corresponding permits to close the entrance on the right side; of the two railings of the colonial front, one was detached from its base and the other was damaged”, according to Mrs. Teresa Herrera Vargas, who alerted the inhabitants of this town and the local media by requesting the intervention of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). Staff from this institution went to the municipality to suspend the work, which caused irreversible damage to this historic monument.

The Institute informed that it suspended several works that were being carried out in the atrium of the temple of the Immaculate Conception of the town, because these violated the federal law on Archaeological, Artistic and Historic Monuments and Zones, because the regulation specifies that to carry out any work in a building considered a historic monument or adjacent to it, the express authorization of the institution is required.

The temples, chapels, chapel houses of worship and any historical building within the State are property of the Federal Government.

In view of the above, on Saturday, March 4th, personnel from the Historic Monuments section of INAH proceeded to suspend the construction with official seals, since the temple is a historic monument from the XVII century, protected by federal laws.

Inhabitants ask the state authorities to severely sanction the priest of the municipality for doing work without the corresponding permits, as well as the engineer who was in charge of this work, since they damaged the pilasters that support the structure of the parish temple.
