Do you want to denounce López-Gatell for handling the pandemic? Javier Coello awaits your message

Javier Coello, a lawyer who heads a lawsuit against Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Health, invited the public to join this resource.

“I have received emails from people who will gladly help them, free of charge. This is not a matter of money, it is of justice (…) People interested in joining the lawsuit can send me an email at [email protected]”, he said in an interview with Formula Group.

The litigant stressed that the evidence against the current czar of the Government’s strategy against the COVID-19 pandemic “is scientific.”

“We are waiting for the Public Ministry to summon us, I think they will do it very soon and then we will provide all the evidence we have,” Azucena Uresti told the driver.

A judge ordered the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) investigate the undersecretary for the death of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ganther Alejandro Villar Ceballos, Federal Control Judge, determined that the Prosecutor’s Office cannot ignore the investigation and in any case must issue a well-founded and motivated response that explains why it would not carry out the investigation.

The investigation was ordered based on a complaint that, in November 2020, the relatives of Felipe del Carmen Jiménez Pérez and Eber Álvarez Zavala, who died of COVID, presented to the Prosecutor’s Office.

The relatives of the victims, who were employees of Coello, accused the federal official of the crime of lack of duty of care, being responsible for managing the pandemic and not taking the necessary actions to prevent the death of people.

Coello pointed out that, since the beginning of the pandemic, there were omissions on the part of the official and even decisions contrary to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Among them, he cited that in principle private hospitals were not allowed to carry out tests to detect the virus, as well as the insistent refusal to recommend the use of face masks to the general population, among other measures.
