Two men aged 31 and 35 were arrested for presenting apocryphal documents and disguising themselves as elderly to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in one of the vaccination points installed in the Coyoacán mayor’s office.
For its part, the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City (FGJCDMX), reported that since they exhibited apocryphal documentation that identified them as elderly beneficiaries of the vaccine, both were linked to proceedings for their probable participation in the crimes of identity theft and falsification or alteration and improper use of documents.
At the initial hearing, the judge determined that those now accused must remain with the precautionary measure of justified preventive detention; in addition, it set a period of one month for the closure of the complementary investigation.
According to the complaint made by the agent of the Public Ministry of the General Coordination of Territorial Investigation, On March 27, the defendants went to a Covid vaccination center installed in Calzada de la Virgen, in the Alianza Popular Revolucionaria neighborhood, in the aforementioned mayor’s office, where they committed said conduct.
This day it was up to all those older adults whose paternal surnames began with the letters H, I, J, K and L.
At a press conference, Cristina Cruz, State Delegate for Development Programs in Mexico City, reported that Due to the voice that did not correspond to that of an older adult, they were discovered and made available to the authorities.
“And at the end of the vaccination process, a fellow servant of the nation realized by the voice that it did not coincide, that was when the authorities were called and the necessary process is being followed. They used someone else’s documentation, the documentation was not altered, rather it belonged to other people, and They are characterized as older adults, painted with gray hair, eyebrows and with masks so that they would not be recognized.”
On this issue, the Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbuam said that the two subjects are in prison for identity theft.
“The issue here is that in all cases that the criteria that must be followed are not followed, and in particular if there was a forgery of a document, as it is treated as a crime, especially if there was theft of identity. In other cases simply If there is a person who is a public official and who for some reason was vaccinated and did not correspond, he / she is separated from the position since there is no criminal offense there.”
Regarding the second doses for these subjects, as well as for the head of the Territorial Investigation Prosecutor’s Office in Coyoacán, Pedro Abelardo Faro Padrón, who was dismissed for skipping the line to receive the Covid19 vaccine without corresponding, Sheinbuam Pardo indicated that if it will be applied to them because it is about the right to health.
