"Se tambalea amparo para vehículos"

Miércoles, 30 de Mayo de 2012


"En duda legalidad de autos importados

MÉXICO, DF.- El Consejo de la Judicatura Federal suspendió a dos jueces de distrito de Mexicali e inició una visita extraordinaria de verificación a todos los juzgados y tribunales de esa ciudad, que en los últimos años han sido blanco de denuncias por beneficiar a importadores de vehículos usados desde Estados Unidos.

"Con estas medidas se busca verificar los hechos que han sido señalados por abogados litigantes e incluso por personal de los propios juzgados y tribunales federales, en los que se alude a diversas conductas irregulares", afirmó el CJF en un comunicado en el que solo mencionó que se dictaron "medidas cautelares" para garantizar el éxito de la indagatoria.

Pero fuentes cercanas al caso informaron que dichas medidas incluyeron la suspensión temporal de dos jueces mientras concluye la visita extraordinaria, y que el CJF plantea readscribir a otros circuitos a juzgadores que hayan cumplido periodos prolongados asignados a Mexicali, medida que ya había sido aplicada en 2010.

Los suspendidos son Daniel González Vargas y José André Nalda, jueces segundo y tercero de distrito en Mexicali, que ayer fueron reemplazados por los respectivos secretarios de acuerdos.

Las fuentes agregaron que la visita extraordinaria deriva en parte de posibles ilícitos en amparos otorgados a empresas que se dedican a la importación masiva de vehículos, y que se han librado de cumplir requisitos fijados por el Ejecutivo.

La investigación también irá sobre la Oficialía de Partes de los juzgados y estará a cargo de la la Secretaría Ejecutiva de Disciplina, la Visitaduría Judicial y la Dirección General de Estadística Judicial.

BENEFICIOS EN EL LIMBO

El tema de los autos chocolates ha sido recurrente.

En abril pasado, el Primer Tribunal Colegiado en Mexicali benefició a la firma Estructura Automotriz, en una sentencia en la que estableció que el amparo ganado por dicha empresa le permite seguir importando vehículos por tiempo indefinido, sujetándose únicamente a los requisitos previstos en el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte.

Este caso provocó reclamos del Servicio de Administración Tributaria, y el fallo será revisado por la Suprema Corte de Justicia.

En julio de 2011, el propio SAT presentó ante el CJF una queja administrativa contra los presidentes del Primer y Cuarto tribunales colegiados en la misma ciudad, porque sin tener atribuciones, giraron oficios a todas las aduanas fronterizas para que sigan permitiendo la importación de vehículos a Estructura Automotriz y al empresario Francisco Zazueta Félix.

A finales de 2010, el CJF desintegró un tribunal colegiado de circuito de Mexicali, dos de cuyos magistrados llevaban 24 años en el puesto, al tiempo que suspendió a un juez de distrito de Tijuana para investigar acusaciones de actos deshonestos y maltrato a sus empleados.

También en aquel año, fue denunciado el secretario de un juzgado de distrito en la capital de Baja California, que en unas cuantas semanas en las que sustituyó al juez titular, concedió suspensiones y amparos que permitieron la importación de miles de vehículos."

In doubt legality of imported cars

MEXICO CITY. - The Federal Judicial Council suspended two district judges of Mexicali and began an extraordinary visit to check all the courts of the city, which in recent years have been the target of complaints by importers benefit used vehicles from the United States.

"These measures seeks to verify the facts that have been identified by trial lawyers and even personal own federal courts, which refers to various misconduct," said CJF in a statement in which he mentioned only they were issued "precautionary measures" to ensure the success of the investigation.

But sources close to the case reported that those measures included the temporary suspension of two judges while the tour concludes extraordinary, and that raises CJF circuits readscribir other judges who have served long periods assigned to Mexicali, as had been applied in 2010 .

The suspended are Daniel Gonzalez Vargas and José André Nalda, judges second and third district in Mexicali, which yesterday were replaced by the respective secretaries of agreements.

The sources added that the visit extraordinary potential derives partly from illicit protections granted to companies engaged in the massive importation of vehicles, and have been delivered to meet requirements set by the Executive.

The research also will go on the Administrative Office of the Courts and parties will be in charge of the Executive Secretariat of Discipline, the Judicial Inspectorate and the Directorate General of Justice Statistics.

BENEFITS IN LIMBO

The recurring theme has been chocolate cars.

Last April, the First Appellate Court in Mexicali benefited the firm structure Automotive, in a ruling that established that the protection gained by the company allows you to continue importing vehicles indefinitely, subject only to the requirements of the Treaty Free Trade in North America.

This case sparked claims the Tax Administration Service, and the decision will be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

In July 2011, the SAT itself CJF filed with an administrative complaint against the presidents of the First and Fourth Circuit Courts in the same city, because without powers, turned all customs offices at border to continue to allow importation of vehicles Automotive Structure and businessman Francisco Zazueta Felix.

In late 2010, the CJF disintegrated one circuit court of Mexicali, two of whose judges had 24 years in office, while a judge suspended District Tijuana to investigate allegations of dishonesty and abuse their employees.

Also in that year, was denounced the secretary of a district court in the capital of Baja California, which in a few weeks that replaced the elected judge, granted suspensions and injunctions that allowed the importation of thousands of vehicles."

I think you misread this, Alan. It has nothing to do with the Supreme Court, but with a state disciplinary board looking into judicial misconduct.

Hmm, where are the promoters of this Amparo thread now? I think the window has been closed and the dog's tail hair has been caught in it. Any legal decision concerning an Amparo would have been recorded here: http://www.ordenjuridico.gob.mx/...iberado=no&edo=2

Yes, misconduct by two judges ruling in favor of companies doing mass importation of vehicles from the United States.

Any input from John?

The date on that is nearly a year old, is it the same one, or another amparo because there apparently was another earlier?

This is not in regards to the recent Amparo. There has been series of them for many years and refers to the "on going" nationalizing of "chocolates" in Mexical/TJ by the thousands possibly by paying off a judge to get Amparos passed, it seems.

Wow, paying off judges, who would have thought that could happen in Mexico? Part of the problem is forcing this to go through brokers and that automatically is a license to steal by some and it's a crap shoot trying to figure who is legit and who isn't.

By the looks of it there is big money to be made doing "chocolates." I was looking for a 2007 car or SUV to import and had also checked prices of buying one here for some time now and San Diego has cheap cars and SUVs right now.

I bet the 2 huge auto auctions there are even cheaper. Some used car dealers down here could probably make more money getting them down here on their lots to sell for a huge profit. I think they are about 2X the price on average I have seen here compared to San Diego Auto Trader. I would imagine some might want as many as they can get.

If you start here: http://www.aduanas.gob.mx/...culos/141_10049.html It is not really a crap shoot. Aduana provides a list of who is legal and a warning not use fly by night schemes to regularize your vehicle such as this unverified Amparo.
