Mexico identifies eight alleged perpetrators for the death of migrants in a fire

Sara Irene Herrerías, head of the Special Prosecutor for Human Rights, announced that this Wednesday four arrest warrants will be requested from the judges and explained that the death of the migrants in the fire is being investigated as an alleged homicide

The Attorney General of the Republic of Mexico assured this Wednesday, March 29, that the personnel in charge of a detention center in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, did nothing to evacuate the people who were inside the immigration center.

At a press conference, Sara Irene Herrerías, head of the Special Prosecutor for Human Rights, said that “none of the public servants or the private security police took any action to open the door for the migrants who were already inside with the fire”.

Eight people have been identified as allegedly responsible for this omission during the fire that occurred on Monday night, the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Rosa Icela Rodríguez, said at the same conference. These are two federal agents and a state immigration agent, as well as five members of a private security company.

Herrerías announced that this Wednesday the judges will be asked for four arrest warrants and explained that the death of the migrants is being investigated as an alleged homicide.

“The file for the crime of homicide and damage to the property of others was started, but according to the investigations, other crimes will be analyzed,” said the FGR official.

Affected Venezuelans

Orlando José Maldonado Pérez was 26 years old. He was a native of Tucapé, in the Cárdenas municipality.

He had been in Mexico for a month, with the dream of crossing the border in search of new opportunities in the United States. But his hope was cut short on Monday night, after the fire that broke out in the Provisional Stay in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, in which at least 38 migrants died, including 12 Venezuelans.

According to a relative, Orlando José left a son as an orphan.

Hostel conditions

In an interview with Telemundo, Anthony González, who was deported from the United States a week ago and sent to the center of Ciudad Juárez, said that he was not present at the time of the fire, but that he had been in the center a few days before.

González denounced the overcrowding and the conditions in which they lived in the center, comparing it to a prison. In addition, he explained that he was thoroughly checked before entering, even going so far as to undress him to check his entire body.

“They check everything, they take away your jewelry, chain, bracelet, watch, and they even stripped me naked to check everything,” González said.

The survivor also recounted that they put him in a room with between 500 and 600 people, where he remained for two hours. “It’s crazy, I was like two hours and it’s crazy… they even sell cigarettes, it’s like a jail,” he said.

The Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) has reported that the deceased immigrants were of different nationalities: Colombians, Ecuadorians, Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Hondurans and Venezuelans, all of them men. Likewise, 15 women without injuries were evacuated from the immigration building.
