The Mexican Senate requests Galván and García Luna to answer to the massacre in Juarez.
The senators also call the Attorney General of the Republic, Arturo Chavez to explain what is the strategy for fighting organized crime after the massacre that occurred in Ciudad Juárez over the weekend.
In response to the recent massacre in Ciudad Juárez and the deaths in Torreon, the Senate requested the immediate appearance before the committees of the Secretary of Defense General Guillermo Galván Galván, Navy Adm. Francisco Mariano Saynez Mendoza, the head of the PGR Arturo Chavez and Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna, to explain the strategy in the fight against organized crime and to provide an assessment of their results.
The points of agreement that were approved but rejected by the political party PAN, were made by Senator Arturo Escobar, of the PVEM and the coordinator of the PT Ricardo Monreal.
As part of the points of agreement, the Senate condemned the massacre in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, and the deaths in Torreon, Coahuila, and called on the federal, state and municipal governments to carry out complete investigations to solve these crimes, as well as to implement preventive programs.
And right before the adoption of the points if agreement, they opened a round of discussion for each fraction to provide their own position.
Ramon Galindo regretted the resignation of former Secretary of Public Safety of Chihuahua, Victor Valencia de los Santos, who resigned to run for mayor of Ciudad Juarez, without giving any news or alternative strategy to fight the violence from organized crime.
The coordinator of the PVEM, Escobar, reminded everyone that his party had proposed the death penalty.
Plan Merida is merely "atole" with the finger of the U.S.
Senator Guillermo Tamborrel (PAN) argued that Plan Merida (Merida Initiative) is a slow and weak process from the U.S. government against organized crime, which has tints of being a joke.
The U.S. must take its responsibility for the fight against organized crime, one which Mexico is fighting a decisive war, said the congressman from the ruling party.
Guillermo Tamborrel, interviewed in the Legislative Palace, where he was attending the closing session of the Standing Committee of which he is a member, noted that in the steps of Plan Mérida "I do not see America's conviction in fighting crime."
The support of this initiative to Mexico is minimal, in respect to the capacity that could be realized, said Panista Tamborrel.
