Judges and magistrates lamented a “constant environment of harassment” by the federal government, after the current administration reported that it will proceed criminally against the judge who exonerated those involved in the Ayotzinapa case.
The National Association of Circuit Magistrates and District Judges maintained that there is a public exhibition of federal judges, with partial information and contrary to the division of powers and international treaties.

They maintained that the exhibition and constant harassment are an unfounded attack that exposes the judges and their families.
.@RicardoMeb makes “a special mention” to Judge Samuel Ventura Ramos, who issued an acquittal to 24 people charged in the case #Ayotzinapawhich already adds up to 120. A complaint will be filed with the CJF and a criminal complaint, reports the undersecretary. pic.twitter.com/Q0SGY5eS2j

“The resolutions we issue are public, because that is what the transparency regulations impose on us, so that society can verify their contents; without being responsible for the deficiencies in the actions of other authorities”, they pointed out in reference to the complaint announced this morning by the Undersecretary of Security, Ricardo Mejía Berdeja.
The group of judges even called on the authorities to present their proposals or observations before the competent authorities or to resort to means of challenge.
This Thursday, during the presentation of the Zero Impunity report, Mejía Berdeja questioned the actions of Judge Samuel Ventura Ramos, from the district of federal criminal proceedings in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, and who has been accused of 120 releases in the case of the disappeared students.
“We want to point out that this is not the first time that this judge has committed this type of sentence. In recent days, he acquitted José Luis Abarca for the crime of kidnapping, but he is still in prison for other crimes… A complaint is going to be filed with the Judicial Council, including a criminal complaint, since this judge repeatedly argues that it is for reasons procedural that gives the sentences, but in our opinion they have been a due pretext for not doing justice to the victims of Ayotzinapa for which we will proceed accordingly, “said Ricardo Mejía.
