A Federal Judge admitted for processing at the end of June the amparo filed by Zerón de Lucio with which he seeks to stop the arrest warrant issued against him for his alleged responsibility in the crimes of alteration and concealment of evidence in the investigation of the Ayotzinapa case.
On March 18, the journalist Álvaro Delgado Gómez confirmed in the Proceso magazine that Tomás Zerón de Lucio, the man who conducted the “investigation” that revealed the “historical truth” about the fate of the 43 normalistas from Ayotzinapa, already had a arrest warrant for a judge at the request of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR).
Zerón de Lucio was a man protected by former President Enrique Peña Nieto. When social pressure led to his dismissal as head of the AIC, he was directly appointed as an adviser to the Presidency. This new commission was taken as an attempt by Peña Nieto to protect him.
The arrest warrant against the former head of the AIC was issued by the FGR on March 10, for which the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) turned a red card for his capture abroad, since the former official would have escaped to Canada.
The accusation against Zerón de Lucio on charges of torture, forced disappearance, altering the crime scene, loss and concealment of evidence, arose after what happened on October 28, 2014 in Río San Juan de Cocula, Guerrero, the day on which Allegedly, Agustín García Reyes, “El Chereje”, one of the allegedly implicated in the discovery of the remains of the 43 normalistas, was allegedly taken away illegally and without the company of his lawyer.
In a report from the General Office of the FGR on June 25, 2019, it is noted that the former official also ordered the experts of the defunct PGR to carry out the search for human remains only in the river, preventing it from being investigated in the whole area.
For this reason, ministerial sources assured that there is sufficient evidence to confirm that Tomás Zerón de Lucio and his AIC team produced the report on “the historical truth” about the disappearance and murder of the Ayotzinapa normalistas.
