|Former Michoacán governor Fausto Vallejo says his son will fight the charges like a man|
and that there are no criminals in their family, that this issue is media generated against his son
A federal court denied an injunction to Rodrigo Vallejo Mora and confirmed the detention order issued against him for the crime of concealment.
Judge Herlinda Velasco Villavicencio of The Fifth Tribunal Unitary Criminal court of DF considered that there are sufficient grounds to continue the process against Vallejo for allegedly concealment with respect to Servando Gómez alias “La Tuta", the leader of Caballeros Templarios.
The judicial authority, (court) ruled that the pictures taken from the videos and transcripts of the audible parts, are sufficient to establish Vallejo’s meetings with the criminal leader.
On August 1, 2014, Vallejo was retained after he attended a meeting with SEIDO to give his declaration. Vallejo was retained by the ministerial authority because he refused to give information about the locations where he met with "La Tuta".
Days later he was imprisoned in the state prison of Santiaguito, in the State of Mexico, where he was imprisoned until April 11th, when the Eighth Collegiate Criminal Court of the Federal District ordered bail because the crime of concealment is not serious crime.
PGR has yet to announce any additional charges of “serious” crimes, such as organized crime conspiracy.
