The Mexico City Attorney General’s Office on Sunday 7 June 2020 reported that, a result of the investigations carried out after the attacks against a minor perpetrated by capital police officers, the Public Ministry requested the respective arrest warrants against two public servants.
Through a statement published on its official website this Saturday, June 6, 2020, the CDMX Prosecutor’s Office revealed that these arrest warrants had already been completed by agents of the Investigative Police (PDI).
The authorities revealed that their investigation indicated that after monitoring on social networks, two elements of the Ministry of Citizen Security (SSC) were identified “by their managers by the type of uniforms they wore, the vests they wore and their respective complexions.”
“Both agents were placed at the disposal of the Central Strategic Investigation Prosecutor’s Office as presented while the agent of the Public Ministry collected enough evidence data to request a control judge for judicial orders,” they indicated.
It is expected that in the next few hours a hearing will be held to complete the arrest warrant , where the judge will define the legal situation of the alleged participants in the assaults of a minor during the protests in Polanco, Mexico City.
