The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has shown this Friday its indignation at the suspension granted to the minister of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) Yasmin Esquivel, who demands that the university institution not disclose information until the power Court resolves the amparo. “UNAM regrets and cannot agree with the court order that seeks to silence it,” she said in a statement.
The resolution of a court in Mexico City issued last Thursday stated that, although the UNAM may continue the procedure against the minister, it will not be able to issue a final resolution. The measure was imposed on the grounds that a finding could affect Esquivel’s presumption of innocence. “This house of studies is respectful of the law and will abide by the provisions of the aforementioned provisional suspension agreement,” UNAM added in its letter.
The sentence indicates that the decision does not seek to silence the workers of the center, but that they must exercise their freedom of expression with modesty. “All State bodies have the obligation not to informally condemn a person or pass judgment before society until their responsibility is proven,” he explains.
The Supreme Court has begun a series of consultations this Friday to determine if it has the necessary powers to initiate a liability procedure against Esquivel, as a member of the SCJN. All this after the controversy led several citizens to file complaints against her for not enjoying the good reputation required by the Constitution to be in the position of minister.
The official refused to resign from her position despite criticism and accusations, stating that she had “nothing to be ashamed of.” “I will participate in today’s session and in all subsequent ones. And today, more than ever, for the safety of the people, ”she assured in mid-January.
