During the days in which the hearings were held to determine if Elena Ríos’ attacker was released, the governor of Oaxaca, as well as other officials, not even the handyman got involved… this, despite the calls for help from the saxophonist.
Now what Juan Antonio Vera Carrizales already got the benefit of going home and, from there, to continue his process, the Oaxacan governor, Salomón Jara, already shows signs of life. Can you reverse the judge’s decision? He says yesalthough Elena Ríos views the situation with skepticism.
Through a video broadcast on their networks, Governor Salomón Jara assures that Vera Carrizales will not be allowed to leave prison. For this, he advanced, the judge will be asked to review the modification of the precautionary measure that, until a few days ago, had the alleged mastermind of the attempted femicide in the Tanivet prison.
For the judge to reverse his controversial (and criticized) decision, Salomón Jara indicated that he will be told that The material conditions do not exist to comply with the change in precautionary measure.
“The home does not have the minimum security conditions and the state government does not have the necessary personnel to guarantee that the defendant will not evade the action of justice”Salomon Jara explains…
And why didn’t he say that before? That doesn’t explain it, what it does say (just the same, too late) is that the judge who released Elena Ríos’ assailant did not comply with the requirement to take into account the gender perspective and the rights of the victim. Seeeeeeeeeeee, the same thing that the saxophonist was warning during the days that the hearing lasted.
In his message, Salomón Jara acknowledges that, by releasing Elena Ríos’ assailant, the judge sends a not good message: “encourages the impunity of a State that historically has high rates of femicide violence”.
Regarding a possible sanction against Judge Teódulo Pacheco (who decided to release Vera Carrizales), Jara reported that will request that the president of the Superior Court of Justice and president of the Council of the Judiciary of Oaxaca check that the aforementioned acted in accordance with the law. If after the evaluation it is determined that it is not, then it will ask to apply the corresponding sanction and render its resolutions without effect.
