Lawsuit filed against elected officials.
Groups of lawyers and activists filed Wednesday a lawsuit against Gov. Francisco Vega and lawmakers.
The plaintiffs say officials violated several local laws related to a private-public partnership, reported La Crónica newspaper.
Lawyers Fernando Rosales and Alejandro Rivera said defendants included in the lawsuit are Secretary of Government Francisco Rueda and Secretary of Infrastructure and Urban Development Manuel Guevara.
Rosales told the newspaper the elected and appointed officials approved an agreement before a legislative vote was made.
Members of Mexicali Resiste, 85 lawyers and representatives of two other activist groups are among the group leading the allegations.
Rosales asked Assistant Attorney General in Mexicali Fernando Ramírez to call defendants to a hearing within two days after the lawsuit was filed.
In a press release the state said the lawsuit will be handled by its legal team.
“The allegations have been addressed appropriately,” the state said.
On Thursday dozens of police officers blocked protestors from entering the Legislative Building.
