After the decree that classified the Mayan Train as a work of National securityits legal administration falls to the Presidency of the Republic or the Ministry of the Interior (SG), said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

He pointed out that his administration will deliver said decree to the judge who required it within the process against the project that various sectors of civil society have undertaken, who have been granted amparos that stopped the construction of section 5 (Cancún-Tulum) for a few months, works that were resumed after the declaration of National security.

Questioned yesterday morning at the National Palace about the instance that is now legally in charge of the project –until before the decree it was the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism (Fonatur)–, the president specified:

I think the Presidency of the Republic or the Ministry of the Interior, but you have to see it. It is a matter of national security, it was what we did at the airport (Felipe Ángeles). And the judge has to resolve what is pending (expedite his determination in the legal process), this is another matter, and it takes a long time.

-With the decree all the work is already in the name of the Presidency? –He insisted.

–All the work, yes, while it is being built –said the president. This in order to stop attempts to stop the work.

He pointed out to the head of the first district court residing in Yucatán, Adrián Fernando Novelo Pérez – who requested the decree and granted the amparos – of being linked to the former minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation José Ramón Cossío, who is now the legal adviser of Claudio X. González. We have to fight with that, but there we are moving forward.

He added that it is precisely the organization of that businessman – one of his adversaries – that finances, together with foreign associations, to these groups of the so-called civil society who have opposed the construction of section 5. It is a flagrant violation of our sovereignty, an interventionist attitude (the action of external organizations), that cannot be allowed.

He indicated that this weekend he made a tour of the southeast to verify the progress of the railway project, he was in Tulum and expected demonstrations by the opponents, but “those who are working told me that these pseudo-environmentalists came to protest and said: ‘Let’s go to be here for just two hours because it’s very hot’. Well OK. They are like those from Frenaa, who did not want to come to sleep here in the Zócalo.”

He stressed that the amparos granted by the judge no longer proceed due to the declaration of National security and insisted that they have all the consent of the owners of the properties through which the road will pass and other scopes of the project.

A few days ago, Javier May, head of Fonatur, reported that by circumscribing himself within the framework of the National securitythe project would be in charge of the SG and the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection.

The President explained that the construction of the Mayan Train, in addition to protecting the environment, will generate development and distribution of wealth in the Mexican southeast.

50 years ago, he recalled, there was no development in Cancun, and today it is the second best-known city in the country worldwide, to the extent that this year it is estimated that 29 million visitors will arrive by air to the airport at this point. tourist.

Thus, it is sought that this tourism spread through the five states through which the railway will pass, so that the natural and cultural wealth is known, especially the ancient Mayan cities.
