The Court of Tribunal in penal matters of the Tenth Circuit with residence in Morelia, Michoacán, received the proceedings of Amparo that was promoted by the Ex Leader of the Autodefensas of Tierra Caliente, Jose Manuel Mireles Valverde, in order to study the challenge raised by the Public Ministry of the Republic.
The Judges admitted the appeal for review by the Prosecutors office attached to the First Unified Court this past March 31st, which granted the constitutional protection in favor of Mireles and three of his co-defendants, so they may go ahead with the prosecution of Dr Mireles for crimes against health and possession of firearms for exclusive use by the Armed Forces.
The Court filed the appeal under the review number 218/2015 and although a date for the possible resolution of the case was not established, it is estimated that this could take 2 months which is an average.
The three volumes of the criminal case 137/2014 of the Fifth District Court in the State of Michoacán, another volume of the case 438/2014 of the Second Unified Court of the same Circuit, and the indirect Amparo 52/2014 of the First Unified Court, will be turned in for presentation to one of the three Judges so they can formulate a draft ruling.
Jose Manuel Mireles Valverde has been in CEFERESO no.11 in Hermosillo, Sonora; while his co-accused, Javier Reyes Magana, Salvador Mendoza Garcia and Gerardo Lopez Casillas were imprisoned in the CEFERESO no 4, El Rincon, in Nayarit.
All of the mentioned were detained by Military on the 27th of June of 2014, in the Town of Lazaro Cardenas, allegedly carrying weapons and drugs.
