The following is a translation of a post from the NotiColima Facebook page which was published on April 13, 2019 and circulated widely on social media at the time. The post appears to be a transcript of a formal complaint purportedly from a Naval officer and is addressed to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. It isn't clear if the information is credible, but some of the allegations may provide some context to recent events. The allegations in the complaint are very serious and include systemic corruption within the Mexican navy and former federal police (PGR), torture, extrajudicial executions, illegal detentions, planting evidence, deception, and cooperation with drug trafficking organizations. There are also allegations of unlawful and covert cooperation and actions by the U.S. Coast Guard and Drug Enforcement Administration. Again, these allegations are unconfirmed, but the accusations should be taken very seriously. For some reason, the supposed complaint is abridged on the NotiColima Facebook page. The unabridged version can be found on Valor Tamaulipeco or here.
By order of Admiral Romel Eduardo Ledezma Abaroa, I am sending this complaint to your email that was provided by that news outlet on April 5, 2019, for this purpose an attachment is attached in acrobat format (PDF) a writing which narrates the arbitrariness that was committed during his term of office as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region (SEMAR) in Acapulco, Guerrero, with which he accounts and reports the status of the actions and degree of corruption as protocol military practices that It is customary and carried out in the Secretary of the Navy of Mexico, this being an unprecedented fact since this denounces the formula mentioned Admiral before C. Lic. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Constitutional President of the United Mexican States and Commander Supreme of the Mexican Armed Forces.
Publicity is requested as an undisclosed event without historical precedent that a High-ranking Admiral makes such a complaint of that nature before his Supreme Command.
HERE I SEND YOU THE FULL TEXT OF THE COMPLAINT IN EDITABLE FORM:
C. Lic. Andrés Manuel López Obrador
Constitutional President of the United Mexican States and
Supreme Commander of the Mexican Armed Forces.
The one who subscribes in my capacity as a Mexican Citizen with all the prerogatives of the law, Admiral Romel Eduardo Ledezma Abaroa, I indicate as official address the one located inside the facilities of the Eighth Naval Region, (SEMAR) specifically in house number four, Avenida Costera Miguel Alemán number 3351, Colonia Icacos, Postal Code 39860, Acapulco, Guerrero, allow me to address this inauguration in your capacity as Constitutional President of the United Mexican States and Supreme Commander of the Mexican Armed Forces, in order to present a formal complaint in order to keep you well informed of the status kept by the Secretariat of the Navy, the Mexican Navy, since in my opinion they are acts presumably constituting serious crimes against Mexican society, as well as acts of corruption, committed by public servants of the Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico, for the participation of said agency in the forced disappearance of persons as in the States of Guerrero, Durango, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Colima, Michoacán, Baja California, Veracruz, among others, states of the Mexican Republic; as well as great excess of using human, material and financial resources (Property of the Mexican Nation) for the personal benefit of all Admirals and Captains graduated from the Heroic Military Naval School who are in Active Service of the Mexican Navy, as well as the who are in a retirement situation synonymous with retirees, as well as for the benefit of the wives and children and other relatives of each of the aforementioned public servants, among other facts that due to their seriousness are violations against humanity, for which I allow myself to at your disposal the information that I narrate under the following:
Crimes of forced disappearance of persons and against humanity, serious human rights violations and those that result:
In the first months when Admiral Vidal Francisco Soberon Sanz, Secretary of the Navy, during the Administration of Lic. Enrique Peña Nieto, who appointed his Compadre Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, as Undersecretary of the Navy, position of which was ratified in said Federal Public Administration by Lic. Enrique Peña Nieto, I received a telephone call from Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, in his capacity as Undersecretary of the Navy, in said conversation by telephone he invited me to work under his exclusive service, who ordered me to go to see him personally in Mexico City, so that he could tell me the specifics and details of the great mission that he was going to assign me in his administration as Under Secretary of the Navy, without remembering the exact date In compliance with what was ordered, I went to his call, that is, I moved to Mexico City, where I met privately with said public official in the offices occupied by the S. Subsecretariat of the Navy, located at Avenida Heroica Escuela Naval Militar No. 861, Colonia Los Cipreses, Coyoacan Delegation, Postal Code 04830, Mexico City, proposed a work plan to root out the crime unleashed in the State of Guerrero and me He said that he would appoint me Commander of the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco, Guerrero, as of January two thousand and eighteen (2018), I commented in a very respectful way that he did not have the power to make this appointment effective in my favor, in that act he told me that the Secretary of the Navy, C. Admiral Vidal Francisco Soberon Sanz, currently a former Secretary of the Navy, is his compadre and that he does everything he recommends and that he handles it at will to take advantage of the benefit of his person, and even told me that it was he who told his compadre, the current former Secretary of the Navy, to appoint him as Undersecretary of the Navy, which he did so immediately, a position which was ratified without any obstacle, He also entrusted me with top-secret information; that in the first months of his tenure as Undersecretary of the Navy, he managed to gather in Mexico City all the Jefes de Plazas of the Drug Cartels, which operate in various states of the Mexican Republic, among which they operate in the transfer and drug trafficking in the States of Durango, Sinaloa, Guerrero, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Colima, Michoacán, Baja California, Veracruz, among other States of the Mexican Republic, at that meeting he was escorted by highly trained Marine Infantry personnel, who formed a convoy of many heavily armed official units and that the meeting site was guarded with said naval personnel mounting a large personal physical security device to protect the physical integrity of the Under Secretary of the Navy, Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, at that meeting the Under Secretary of the Navy, offered to the Jefes de Plazas of the Drug Cartels who were meeting with him, that he would provide them with absolute protection during his tenure as Undersecretary of the Navy, in exchange for a large amount of dollars that he would receive monthly; At that meeting, one of the members of the Drug Cartel told the Undersecretary of the Navy, Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, that if said agency were to detain his people, that it would release them all and that they would only keep the confiscation, to which the Undersecretary of the Navy Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, stated that he promised to release the Jefe de la Plaza or leader of those who came to arrest and that the others, both those who serve as estacas [mobile fire teams], tanks, hitmen, escorts, etc., would consign them to the competent authority and promised to respect their human rights, that is, they would not pass through the protocol ordeal of physical and psychological torture, to which the majority did not think that nothing else would release the leader or chief of the group of those who came to arrest, since they, the Jefes de Plazas or leaders of the Drug Cartels, asked to release all those that the Secretary of the Navy of Mexico, came to arrest, they finally reached an agreement that the Undersecretary of the Navy, Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, would provide them with absolute protection and that the mission that I would specifically entrust myself as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco, Guerrero, it consisted of cleaning the plaza in Chilpancingo, Acapulco, Coyuca de Benites, Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo de Azueta, all of the State of Guerrero, as well as other municipalities with a higher rate of criminal activity in said federative entity, through covert operations, that is, deploying naval personnel in the form of civilians to act under similar circumstances as hitmen act executing adversarial groups that operate in said places, as well as conducting tours and night surveillance patrols onboard official units of the Secretary of the Navy in exchange for that I would receive a large amount of money in cash and that would be disguised under the concept of risk insurance which would not be part of the normal salary, nor would it be an extraordinary income since it would not configure nominal route, for which I accepted the position that would appoint me as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco, Guerrero, telling me that in the other states he has already appointed other Admirals who have already agreed to work under his direct orders under the premise that they will receive a very juicy monetary amount in exchange for the mission entrusted to them as well as the assigned, that is, they would carry out the same mission as the assigned each in the states already mentioned, in a literal sense it is to clean the plaza where organized crime of drug traffickers operate so that the plaza is openly in favor of the drug cartels provided by Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, Undersecretary of the Navy.
For which I told the Undersecretary of the Navy, Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, that in order for the undersigned to be able to fulfill said mission, he needed to have highly qualified naval personnel of my entire confidence, so I asked him to appoint as Commander of the Infantry Battalion of Navy number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero, to my compadre C. Captain of the Navy of the Marine Corps Diploma of General Staff Paratrooper Gerardo Rosas Azamar, as well as four other captains, and all the trusted naval personnel that my compadre Rosas Azamar, required, also asked him that I needed to have under my absolute service the Mobile Unit of the Naval Intelligence Unit of the Secretariat of the Navy, who told me that he would take care of everything I needed and that as for the trusted personnel of my compadre Rosas Azamar, that nothing else will pass the names to him to order his movement and if he needed to change all Naval personnel of the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two, which my compadre Rosas Azamar would command, only to make it official to make it available to all naval personnel under my entire confidence, as well as the naval personnel of my compadre Rosas Azamar's trust, is say all the naval personnel of the twenty-second Marine Infantry Battalion in Acapulco, Guerrero.
Therefore, in the first months of this year (2018), I was informed of the appointment to assume the position of Commander of the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco, Guerrero, replacing Admiral Juan Guillermo Fierro Rocha, as soon as I assumed the position of Commander of the Eighth Naval Region, through the Senior Officials Office of the Secretary of the Navy, began to communicate the appointments and movements requested, that is, the appointment of my compadre was communicated, C. Captain of the Navy of the Marine Corps Graduated from the Paratrooper General Staff Gerardo Rosas Azamar, as Commander of the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero, depending Organically, Operatively, Tactically and Administratively under my Command in an absolute way, as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region, serving as my armed detachment at all times, in order to fulfill the mission entrusted.
Upon assuming this position, my compadre Rosas Azamar, gave me the list of all the naval personnel of his entire confidence, from which he requested to manage the movement of the same who belonged in different Battalions of Marine Infantry located strategically in other states of the Mexican Republic , for which the massive movements of said naval personnel began to be carried out and they were discharged in the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero, under the command of my compadre Rosas Azamar and the personnel who were assigned to said Battalion They were transferred into different battalions from where the trusted personnel came from, that is, all the naval personnel who belonged to the Twenty-two Marine Infantry Battalion, were replaced and changed their assignment by trusted personnel of the Captain of the Navy Infantry Corps. Navy Diploma of General Staff Paratrooper Gerardo Rosas Azamar, as Commander of the Battalion of and Marine Infantry number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero, once my compadre Rosas Azamar already had naval personnel of his entire confidence, and that I already had under my personal service the Mobile Unit of the Naval Intelligence Unit of the Secretariat of the Navy, order my compadre C. Captain of the Navy of the Marine Corps Diploma of General Staff Paratrooper Gerardo Rosas Azamar, Commander of the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two, to carry out covert operations, that is deploy naval personnel under their command dressed in civilian clothes and heavily armed, to act under similar circumstances as hitmen do, executing adversary groups that operate in the places specified below, as well as to carry out tours and night-time patrols aboard Official units of the Secretary of the Navy in all the colonies of Acapulco, Guerrero, to support the naval personnel who that they are dressed in civilian clothes carrying out extrajudicial executions of organized crime people who operate in said plaza, and that according to information from Naval Intelligence, the colonies with the highest rate of violence in Acapulco, Guerrero, which began to patrol nights and carry out extrajudicial executions of civilians are: in the Colonias La Garita, Las Cruces, La Zapata, El Coco, Ciudad Renacimiento, El Quemado, Las Plazuelas, La Sabana, Crucero del Cayaco, La Venta, Llano Largo, Coloso, Colosio, Icacos, Costa Azul, Caleta, Pie de la Cuesta, among other colonies, in which the naval personnel of said battalion number twenty-two made many arbitrary arrests of people and detained and / or picked up many people who were presumed with suspicion of being a hawk [lookout], dealer or drug dealer, as well as several illegal searches of various real estate that were presumed to be used as drug dealers or laboratories of drug, psychotropic and chemical precursor prosecutions, said people were taken to the safe houses established in advance in each neighborhood where the tours and surveillance patrols were carried out during the nights, the safe houses are abandoned buildings without any person inhabit, place where the detained people were and are physically taken to be subjected to torture of all kinds by naval personnel of the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two, under the command of my compadre Rosas Azamar, so that intelligence information could be obtained under confession of said people who confessed their criminal activities and who confessed the locations of the safe houses of their bosses, all that information obtained under physical and psychological torture the Mexican Navy Secretary denominates site exploitation and intelligence information gathering, or, inter-institutional information obtained in coordination or collaboration with local authorities that made it possible to locate, detain, dismantle, kill, etc., people who are engaged in organized crime; Once the tortured people confessed their crimes and all their criminal activities, in the safe houses where they are physically taken to be tortured by public servants of the Secretariat of the Navy (Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero), they are kept in said safe houses since it is prohibited to take and transfer detained persons to the military naval installations because there is a recommendation issued by the National Human Rights Commission, that when detaining people in flagrante delicto, they are not taken to the military barracks, which are immediately placed at the disposal of the competent authority, however military custom is followed in the Secretariat of the Navy, when naval personnel of said agency carry out the detention of people, in a forced manner by illegal and arbitrary protocol they have to pass through the ordeal of the exploitation of information obtained through physical and psychological torture, on some of the occasions they even get a hand in the torture that detainees are subjected to and even die from the blows and injuries received by the detainees, for the Secretary of the Navy it is considered vital importance for said agency in order to find the whereabouts of the leaders or heads of plazas of criminal or delinquent organizations; Once all the information was obtained under torture, it was chosen and continues to be done for the good of Mexican society to eradicate at its roots this scourge that afflicts society, that is, once all the information was obtained under physical and psychological torture with which they count the people detained and tortured in different real estate called safe houses, the extrajudicial execution of the same is carried out and the dead bodies are thrown on public roads with a narco message, some are dismembered and human remains are thrown on public roads with narcomensajes, so that they were published in the nota roja of the local media, that said people were executed by the antagonistic group, that is, the criminal adversary groups that dispute the Plaza de Acapulco, Guerrero, for the transfer, sale and distribution of drugs, thus in that way a lot of intelligence information was obtained and it was possible to clean the plaza in Acapulco, Guerrero, by seventy percent, implementing the same procedure in the Region of the Costa Grande of the State of Guerrero, where it was also possible to clean the square so that it could be taken over by the drug cartels under the protection of C. Almirante Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, Undersecretary of the Navy and even in these acts public servants of the Specialized Office of Investigation in Organized Crime of the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic also participated, who are aware of all these arbitrary acts that were committed in conjunction with public servants of the Secretariat of Marina, both agencies had good results adjusting the detention times of some people who were tortured and who were not extrajudicially executed, so that the temporality of the detention was adjusted within the legal framework of the protocol of action of the first respondent and the established protocols were respected, therefore, the public servants of said PGR unit can act as protected witnesses to reinforce the present complaint and information, it was also decided to illegally obtain evidence or material evidence, which were planted on different people that according to the intelligence information obtained under torture of the detained and extrajudicially executed persons who indicated under torture that said persons who were consigned participated in illicit activities or that it was presumed that they were engaged in illicit activities due to their way of living and not being able to prove the legal obtaining of their assets and resources with which they possessed and they had and thus be able to legally prosecute said evidence or material evidence which had been planted and recorded on said persons, and the events were narrated as a settled legal truth, inventing facts based on flagrant arrests, since the really true facts are different to those narrated in formulating the Approved Police Report (IPH) and its corresponding formats, actions that work in the actions of the investigation folders that the PGR instructs in Acapulco, Guerrero.
All this bad performance to the detriment of the Mexican society with which the Secretary of the Navy, the Mexican Navy, it is customary to implement all the people who detain said public servants, it is strengthened by what Lic. Alfonso Navarrete Prida, Secretary of the Interior, of the past Administration, which has publicly recognized that both the military and the police forces and investigative bodies such as the PGR and prosecutors of each federal entity, unfortunately use physical and psychological torture as one of the methods of investigation in Mexico, as well as the The National Human Rights Commission has publicly recognized that in Mexico physical and psychological torture to which detained or investigated persons are subjected is a common method of investigation, as has occurred in the investigation of the Iguala case, Guerrero, in the disappearance of the 43 students from the Rural Normal School of Ayotzinapa, Gro., all the detainees were tortured physically and psychologically by all the authorities that intervened in said investigation, both by the military, police organizations, and investigative and law enforcement bodies.
I am making this complaint because up to the present date I have not received any currency, cash resources, personal and real property in carrying out said acts with my compadre Captain of the Navy of the Marine Corps Diploma of General Staff Paratrooper Gerardo Rosas Azamar, Commander of the Marine Infantry Battalion number twenty-two in Acapulco, Guerrero, who has served as my armed detachment and we at the same time in complicity with the PGR, have served as an armed detachment benefiting the drug cartels that currently operate in Acapulco, Guerrero and the entire Costa Grande Region of the State of Guerrero, which are protected by Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, Undersecretary of the Navy, who did not comply with what he promised me, that is to say that the subscribed in exchange for fulfilling the mission entrusted to me, the truth is that if it fulfilled at the beginning in the designation and ratification of the complaint I argue that I was appointed as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region, as well as to appoint my compadre Captain Gerardo Rosas Azamar, as Commander of the Twenty-second Marine Infantry Battalion and to appoint to his service all the people of confidence that I needed. However, in our excessive actions, we risk our lives and our families in fulfilling this assignment of the assigned mission and in exchange for nothing, for which I formally denounce Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, Undersecretary of the Navy, of having links with crime organized and provide protection to them, as well as leading and increasing the rate of violence in the State of Guerrero, acts perpetrated by the undersigned, in the first months of this year and even today, the violence continues, which in some communities and colonies of Acapulco, Guerrero, including in the Costa Grande Region, where I have ordered that a curfew be established disguising it that they are made and issued by the criminal adversary groups that operate in those places, when the truth is that it is done through this agency under my command, to intimidate the adversary criminal groups for which we serve, what is worse that I order naval personnel under the command of my compadre Rosas Azamar, to carry out violence through shootings and executions that were carried out in civilian clothes in different colonies of Acapulco, Guerrero, as well as the ambush and execution of police from the State of Guerrero in the Region of the Costa Grande of the State of Guerrero, to be able to send naval support personnel and be able to clean the plaza in said Region, sacrificing the lives of said State public servants.
Likewise, Admiral Ángel Enrique Sarmiento Beltran, Undersecretary of the Navy, told me that in previous years during his tenure as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region, he worked for different cartels that traffic drugs on the high seas, through the Pacific Ocean and that the transfer, storage, smuggling, drug trafficking were done on the coasts of the states of Guerrero, Oaxaca and Chiapas, jurisdiction of the Eighth Naval Region, which is why during his tenure in previous years as Commander of the Eighth Naval Region, he did not carried out the seizure of any small vessel that transported on board illicit cargo of the narcotic with cocaine hydrochloride, a circumstance that can be proven with the operational statistics captured in the Database of the Secretariat of the Navy called "Operational Information System of the Armada de México ”(SIOPAM), which is operated by naval personnel of the General Staff of all Naval Commands, both Forces, Regions, Zones as, Sectors and other Naval Commands, whose operation and capture center are established in the Command and Control Rooms of the aforementioned Naval Commands headquarters, where the Permanence Captains of said Naval Commands perform 24-hour Guards services. However, since the undersigned assumed command of the Eighth Naval Region, at the beginning of this year (2018), carry out the seizure and seizure of many small vessels that transported illicit cargo with cocaine hydrochloride, it can also be accredited in the operational statistics that are captured in said database, which was designed precisely for consultation at all times and that serves as support for the decisions of the Secretary of the Navy, that is, in designing the lines or routes for the transfer of drugs from South America and who are introduced to Mexican territory, aboard small boats and water planes or motor ships or unidentified aerial objects, the routes are designed according to the incidence of drug trafficking in order to prevent the trafficking of drugs from continuing, information that is shared with the ships or vessels of the Coast Guard Service of the United States of America, according to do to inter-institutional collaboration.
I also allow myself to denounce that the Mexican government, through the Secretary of the Navy, has allowed the invasion and intrusion of said foreign ships Coast Guard of the USA into Mexican national territory, without any legal authorization who have carried out operations within the Exclusive Economic Zone, (Mexican National Territory) without any authorization, who have taken seizures of vessels and arrests of Mexicans and foreigners aboard small vessels that transport drugs within the Exclusive Economic Zone and have incinerated and sunk total submersion of said vessels within the Mexican national territory, and the Mexican and foreign crew members are handed over to this agency "Secretariat of the Navy" without being able to prove that they committed any administrative offense or crime, since they are handed over as shipwrecked, since regarding the illegal cargo seized (Drug) that transport in their small boats that are incinerated by the coast guard service of the United States of North America, they are not handed over to the Mexican government, they only give us as castaways the crews of the incinerated and sunken vessels completely submerged within the Exclusive Economic Zone by the coast guard service from the USA.
The DEA for its acronym in English, has carried out covert operations within the national territory, which has coordinated these operations with the Naval Intelligence Unit of the Secretariat of the Navy, which have invaded the air, land and sea territory in a manner illegal without any authorization where they carry out their operations and whose secrecy of said information is hidden from the Supreme Commander of the Mexican Armed Forces, that is to say, that Presidential investiture is not informed in its capacity as Supreme Command of the Mexican Armed Forces, on the part of the Secretary of the Navy, said unit has hidden a lot of information of great relevance and importance of great utility, as well as the participation of said military unit in the operation where the 43 normalistas disappeared, information that can be corroborated and strengthened with the which is captured in the Database of the Secretariat of the Navy called "System of Operational Information of the Mexican Navy ”(SIOPAM), which is operated by naval personnel from the General Staff of the Eighth Naval Region and Naval Sector of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Guerrero.
It should be noted that the Naval Intelligence Unit that the Secretariat of the Navy has, carries out espionage work to capture great bosses of the Mexican mafia, which was used to capture Joaquín Guzmán Loera (a) "El Chapo", as well This Naval Intelligence Unit is also used for espionage work to intercept communications of the leaders of the political parties adversaries of the government in turn and to intervene the communications both via telephone in voice, data, messages, images, videos, etc., of any person who wishes to obtain information of all kinds under the exclusive service of the Supreme Command, that is, any effective investigation that the Supreme Command wishes to obtain, as well as the Secretary of the Navy, can be done by the Naval Intelligence Unit of the Secretary of the Navy, (espionage tasks in coordination with the Special Operations Unit), this is based on illegality, violating the rights of free and exercise of civilians, violating at all times their guarantees and human rights that the constitution establishes as universal right.
Misappropriation of financial resources, as well as excess use of human, material and financial resources (Property of the Mexican Nation) for personal benefit in favor of all Admirals and Captains graduated from the Heroic Military Naval School who are in Active Service of the Navy of Mexico, as well as those who are in a situation of retirement synonymous with retirees, as well as for the benefit of the wives and children and other relatives of each of the aforementioned public servants, as well as excessive abuse of public power in the exercise of their position, commission and employment performed by said public servants.
In the Secretariat of the Navy, Navy of Mexico, at the beginning of each year, a book is published that is assigned the name of "ESCALAFÓN DE ALMIRNTES, CAPITANES Y OFFICIALES" with the supplement assigned to it from the corresponding annuity, in the that for this specific year the book called "ESCALAFON DE ALMIRATES, CAPITANES Y OFFICIALES 2018" was published, by means of which it contains the records of the personal data of all the personnel of Admirals, Captains and Officers who are in the Active Service of The Mexican Navy, with said ranks, it is proven that they head the data and records of the former Secretaries of the Navy, in which it specifies that they are in the Active Service, who really do not go to the Secretariat of the Navy to serve as an Active member of the Navy of Mexico, (THEY ARE AVIATORS and SCAMMERS who use the coffers of the federal treasury financial resources owned by the Nation) to perform any function as an Active member of the Mexican Navy, since they are in their private homes and vacationing throughout the Mexican Republic, as well as abroad, they only go to the Offices of the Secretary of the Navy to sign the corresponding payroll of each fortnight as an Active Public Servant, which their actions are worse than the municipal policemen who act as aviators who only configure payroll and come to collect every fortnight without physically showing up to work, thus consuming excessive theft to the detriment of Mexicans by all former Secretaries of Marinas, they at the end of their management as Secretaries of Marinas, continue to appear on the payrolls of said agency and continue to collect millionaire sums and royalties, bonuses, compensation, risk insurance, etc, etc, etc ..., as Active Service Members in the Mexican Navy, they also have under their service at all times naval personnel of security escorts in charge of the naval personnel of Infantry of the Marina, who are on active duty, to give physical security to each one of the family members of the former Secretaries of the Navy, as well as to give physical security to the houses and rooms of the same, and even the former Secretaries of Marines count under their personal service permanently, twenty-four hours a day, the military naval personnel of the Marine Infantry in active service, as well as official units (assets of the nation) for their personal physical security that use the same and official vehicles of the The Secretary of the Navy under the personal service of each former Secretaries of the Navy for their exclusive use in a personal way to move aboard said official units owned by the Mexican nation, they also have bales to recharge fuels at different gas stations charged to the departures budgetary resources destined to purchase fuel for the official units of the Secretariat of the Navy, destined for personal use to said former presidents, official vehicles owned by the nation are also used for the service and exclusive use in a personal way for the wives of each former Secretaries of the Navy of the past administrations for decades, in sum it can be quantified that they are assigned or commissioned by naval personnel on active duty under the exclusive personal service of each former Secretaries of the Navy, ranging from twenty waiters, twenty-five cooks, twenty drivers, ten gardeners, five clerks, fifty Marines, all these personnel naval service are in the Active Service of the Mexican Navy, as well as ten official vehicles of the Secretariat of the Navy owned by the nation, which are intended for the personal use of each former Secretaries of the Navy, as well as financial resources for fuel expenses consumed by said official units under their personal service, and financial resources that cover the resources exercised by concept of per diem that are delivered to each one of the naval personnel in active service assigned or commissioned with said former public servants; Thus it is also to emphasize that the retired Admirals, both those who have served and the Active Admirals who carry out the positions of: 1.- Deputy Secretary of the Navy, 2.- Senior Officer of the Navy, 3.- Inspector and Controller General of the Navy, 4.- Chief of the General Staff of the Navy, 5.- Commander of the Headquarters of the Mexican Navy, 6.- Commander of the Pacific Naval Force,7.- Commander of the Naval Force of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the commanders of the eight military Naval Regions deployed in a geostrategic manner throughout the coastal strip of the Mexican national territory, all those former public servants who have held these positions are also It allocates many human, material and financial resources to them for their personal service, which is proven that for decades each Secretary of the Navy, who is recommended to occupy said position, traditionally continues to allow the expenditure of these resources for the personal benefit of former Secretaries of the Navy, with the mentality that at the end of their term as Secretary of the Navy, they would have the same fate, that is, they would have the same benefits, when article 31 of the Discipline Law for the personnel of the Mexican Navy, clearly establishes everything the opposite, for which I allow myself to transcribe that it refers to the following literal tenor: His human body should only be used for the regulatory tasks inherent to his service or commission. The material and financial resources owned by the nation should only be used for the purpose required by the demands of the service, in accordance with the directives, orders and instructions issued for their use ”.
The Commands of each one of the Military Naval Regions, Zones, Sectors, Directorates, Battalions and all positions of Naval Commands also count under their exclusive personal service six drivers, five waiters, five cooks, twenty marines. They are all naval personnel in active service of the Mexican Navy, as well as five official vehicles and expenses in excess of financial resources for the consumption of fuel for said official units destined for the personal service of said public servants and for the benefit of their wives and children.
All Admirals and Captains of Ships who are graduates of the Heroic Naval Military School, both those who are within the active service of the Mexican Navy, as well as those who are in a situation of retirement synonymous with retirees, count in their homes private individuals under his exclusive service in a personal way to commissioned naval personnel that range over the five commissioners in their private homes, which are among waiters, cooks, drivers, gardeners and cleaning servants, which said naval personnel are mistreated already that they receive a degrading cruel inhuman treatment by the ladies' wives of said Admirals and Captains and by the aforementioned former public officials, which has led to many unsolved complaints in favor of the commissioned personnel themselves, even though they have every reason for said complaints, on the contrary they are intimidated that if they want to continue in the active service of the Mexican Navy that they accept the working conditions they receive in the private homes of said former public servants or else they would run them away and no longer have the job and they have no choice but to accept said conditions and cruel treatment that they receive in some circumstances they are even physically injured by whipping, beating and torture said personnel commissioned in the private homes of each of the retired Admirals and Captains (retired), whose number of Admirals and Captains in Active Life can be verified in the Rank of Admirals, Captains and Officers, so that Supreme Command have an overview of how many active naval personnel have commissioned naval personnel carrying out activities inherent to their service in private homes under the personal service in favor of Admirals and Captains of Ships graduated from the Heroic Naval Military School, both in assets as well as in retirement.
It should be clarified that in the corresponding Rank, only the data of all the Admirals, Captains and Officers who are within the Active Service of the Mexican Navy appear, regarding this category of naval personnel who are in retirement situation (retirees) their personal data is controlled by the Deputy General Directorate of Security and Social Welfare of the Secretariat of the Navy, as well as by the Social Security Institute for the Mexican Armed Forces, that is, all naval personnel who are in retirement status, their names are not found on the Rank of Admirals, Captains and Officers of each annuity.
For a better understanding, the category of Admirals is understood to be three military hierarchies which are Rear Admiral, Vice Admiral and Admiral, all these categories of people who are on active duty and in retirement, as well as the Captains of Ships, have privileges under their personal service of servitude who are military sailors in active duty of the Mexican Navy, of all specialties, that is, waiters, cooks, drivers, Marines, Gardeners, Laborers, as well as official vehicles owned by the nation under their personal service in favor and for the benefit of the same, as regards the Commands of Regions, Zones, Naval Sectors, Battalions of Marine Infantry, all the positions of Commands of surface units, Aircraft and Land, as well as other high-ranking positions, these are assigned to the personal service of their families, that is, the Naval Air Bases allocate the aircraft to the personal service of the wives and children of said public officials, that is, they allocate resources from the federal treasury, as well as human, financial and material resources to a personal service for the benefit of the families of said public officials and retirees synonymous with retirees in civil life.
Also within the Secretariat of the Armed Navy of Mexico, as well as within each of the Eight Regions, Fourteen Military Naval Zones, Naval Sectors, General Directorates and Headquarters of the High Command, each of these Naval Commands has naval casinos that organize dance parties every Friday on weekends, where they sell all kinds of intoxicating drinks where a lot of money is collected in profit and they are deposited in the bank account of the Association of the Heroic Naval Military School, to be distributed to all the Admirals and Captains who are graduates of the Heroic Naval Military School, whose cadet President is the Secretary of the Navy of each Public Administration of the Government of Mexico, of all the social events that are carried out by the waiters and cooks who serve as waiter and bartenders are the troops, that is, the naval personnel in Active Service are commissioned to act as waiters and cooks who are in charge I wanted to wait for the Admirals, Captains, Officers and Chiefs, as well as their families and guests who attend these social events, that is to say once again they use the active duty troops for their personal service in the table of each social event. organized every weekend by said public officials and even in the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco, Guerrero, the wife of Lic. Enrique Peña Nieto, went to the Bar called "SANTA BARBARA", which is located within the Eighth Naval Region in Acapulco , Guerrero, came with her guests exclusively using naval personnel and resources for her personal consumption at the expense of the federal treasury, they also use yachts such as the "DREAM SEKER", "ANDROMEDA", "LYRA", among other luxury boats and patrols for tourist tours and whose servitude is the naval personnel of the Sailing Training Center, which depends directly on the Secretary of the Navy, however, for strategic purposes, its facilities are located within the military naval facilities of the Eighth Naval Region; Likewise, in each of those Naval Commands within their military barracks, in all the military naval facilities there are many commercial stores in which commercial products from grocery stores are sold, which both in social events and commercial stores do not have any permission. For the purposes that by their nature were consequently created all the Naval Commands, which administer said commercial stores, commit the crime of tax evasion, likewise the Secretariat of the Navy sells useful cartridges of various calibers to civilians and criminal organizations whose deposits are made in the bank account of the Association of the Heroic Naval Military School, as well as in the account of self-generated resources of the Senior Navy Officer, likewise the Naval Commands divert resources destined to buy food for military naval personnel and are deposited in said bank account and on another occasion they use financial resources to do social events for the volunteer ladies wives of Admirals, Captains, Officers and Chiefs, that is, they divert the resources destined to acquire the sacred foods of the naval personnel, they carry out the misappropriation of financial resources for special events of the volunteer ladies both in breakfasts, dinners, dances, etc ... they also rent the naval casinos to civilians to hotel companies, for dances, fifteen years, baptisms, weddings, among other social events that they celebrate and all the resources that are generated as a result of the income of said casinos naval facilities, as well as the beaches and palapas that are rented for private social events, are deposited in the private bank accounts of the Association of the Heroic Naval Military School, as well as in the bank account of self-generated resources of the Official Office of the Navy, violating and violating all the laws of the matter, since when they carry out each social event they do not obtain p Hermitages for that purpose in the naval casinos and palapas [thatched huts] that are located on the beaches of each military naval base.
In the budget items for acquiring spare parts for aircraft, surface units (boats) and land official vehicles, they simulate making millionaire purchases with different commercial houses and they are issued the corresponding invoice, however the spare part does not enter in physical form supposedly acquired purchased with the resource destined for that purpose, and they extract the money and leaving a percentage for the owner of the commercial house in exchange for the invoice issued and the rest of the money is given in cash to the naval personnel who make the purchases and Said resource is delivered to the Naval Commands, as well as to the high officials of the Senior Navy Officer, and this is how the nation's money is stolen, justifying with authentic invoices, but the part in question is not acquired in physical form, Only a purchase sale simulation is made with the corresponding commercial houses and the recovered resource is deposited at the bank entities of the Association of the Heroic Military Naval School, or to the Bank Account of Self-generated Resources of the Major Navy Officer, in this way the agency carries out money laundering, financial resources of the federal public treasury destined for items budgetary to acquire spare parts of all kinds so that with these acts the public servants of the Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico, carry out the misappropriation of financial resources.
In all the Eight Naval Regions, as well as in all Naval Zones and Sectors, they have Marine Shipyards where they carry out the repair of private civil ships, recreational yachts and all types of smaller vessels of all types of dimensions, charging a lot of money for the repair of said aquatic assets owned by individuals of commercial companies and fishing cooperatives, etc., resources that are deposited to the bank account of Self-generated Resources of the Mayor's Office of the Secretariat of the Navy and the bank account of the Association of the Heroic Naval Military School and in many cases checks are issued or paid in cash to the Directors of each Navy Shipyard, a resource that is administered for the personal benefit of each Sub-Secretary of the Navy.
In all Naval Commands they have pipes with a lot of fuel storage capacity which are certified by the Ministry of Communications and Transportation to transport fuel, premium gasoline, and diesel, for the official units of the Ministry of the Navy and in some of the Sometimes they sell half of the fuel that they transport to individuals and the other half of the pipe is supplied to official vehicles and there is no control of them during transport and distribution to the final destination of said fuel, nor is there a strict control during supply of the pipes, since the Naval Commands are those that allow and tolerate these acts of theft of this type of hydrocarbon for the personal benefit of the high officials of the Secretariat of the Navy; What is more serious, that as it is possible that the Secretariat of the Navy, has gas stations in Mexico City and other places in the Mexican nation, which administer the fuel sold in these gas stations owned by the Secretariat of the Navy, They are stolen hydrocarbons that are supplied by the pipes of said agency, and the financial resource resulting from the sale of fuel at said gas stations owned by the Secretary of the Navy, are destined for the personal benefit of the Senior Public Officials of said agency "SEMAR" .
Likewise, in all the Naval Commands, within the Naval Housing Units there are commercial stores, as well as in all the patrols, coastal, oceanic and ships where there are marine troop personnel destined to manage said commercial stores and whose millionaire earnings are deposited in the bank account of Self-Generated Resources of the Mayor's Office, as well as the bank account of the “Association of the Heroic Naval Military School” for the personal benefit of all the Admirals.
On the other hand, with all my greatest respect, I allow myself to state that there are requirements to hire new personnel for the Active Service of the Mexican Navy, as an indispensable requirement, they require a minimum height of 1.75 meters, it is unlikely that the current Secretary of the Navy C. Admiral José Rafael Ojeda Duran, who is less than 1.50 meters tall, is discriminatory and contrary to what is established in the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States, that this agency requires this measure of height as a requirement to hire staff Aspiring to new entry, when the person in charge of said unit as Secretary of the Navy has a stature lower than that required as an indispensable requirement,having more Admirals with the appropriate profile to serve as Secretary of State of said agency.
In all the Countries of the World there are Naval Attaché Offices in the embassies, where the Admirals and Captains are located, charging the position as public servant of the Secretariat of the Navy as Naval Attachés, as well as marine troops in active service who are commissioned, to whom Their salaries and other emoluments are paid in dollars and other ordinary and extraordinary benefits, which is unaffordable, that is, it is very expensive to have all these people public servants of the Ministry of the Navy as Naval Attachés and commissioners in each Country, I consider that it is unnecessary expenses to have commissioned naval personnel in all the countries of the world.
This is the first delivery of the information and complaint that I make towards that H. Superiority and I will continue to denounce this type of acts constituting crimes and privileges that public servants of the Secretariat of the Navy, Navy of Mexico, personally enjoy, who are looting the coffers of the federal treasury for personal benefit and that of their families and friends, as well as the monopoly of school fees to enter the Heroic Naval Military School as cadets, since it is well known that they simulate applying admission exams to the applicants of the aforementioned educational establishment, when school fees are actually granted to the children of Admirals and Captains of said military naval institution,as well as the children of your friends and friendships of the high officials of said agency and that you, as the Supreme Command of the Armed Forces, must be aware of all the abuses, arbitrariness that are the subject of this complaint and must put a stop to this corruption and whose The Secretary of the Navy heads this corruption, that is why he does nothing to combat it, since he himself heads all those privileges for his personal benefit, Admiral José Rafael Ojeda Duran.
On the other hand, I would like to clarify that on December 10 of this year, I will hand over the Command of Arms of the Eighth Naval Region of Acapulco, Guerrero, a public position that I will hand over to Admiral Francisco Limas López, on that I will go to my new assignment in Tampico, Tamaulipas, where I will be waiting for a license to be communicated to me to adapt to civil life and at the end of enjoying said benefit, I will be notified of my discharge from Active Service of the Mexican Navy and discharge in retirement due to age limit, the which I meet in the month of August of next year (2019), I also allow myself to clarify that I will leave this complaint signed in a sealed envelope to give it to a person of my entire confidence in order to send it through the official correspondence of the Mexican postal service by registered piece, so I will also leave this complaint electronically so that it can be publicized and this type of very abusive acts by the high officials of the Secretary of the Navy will no longer be tolerated.
I put myself at your disposal and at your orders, so that you have an overview that everything that is written in this complaint is true, it is covered with all truth, in this act I allow myself to swear before that investiture under protest that it is the mere truth and to strengthen the content of the veracity of the same, allow me to request that C. Admiral José Rafael Ojeda Duran, current Secretary of the Navy, be required to inform you in writing in an official way the percentage of veracity of the total content of this complaint, I allow myself to express my broadest respects and subordination to that H. Superiority.
