Uriel Carmona, the prosecutor of Morelos, is released
The Prosecutor of Morelos, Uriel Carmona, left the Federal Center for Social Rehabilitation walking through the main door after a Collegiate Court ordered that he be free to face a fourth criminal case against him.
Family members and part of his legal team had been waiting at this point for his departure since 9 a.m. this Thursday and finally at 9:48 the public servant came out dressed in gray pants and a plastic bag in his hand.
The legal team was surprised and ran to protect him and put him in a truck that started and left the area.
The official has four criminal proceedings, three of them for the case of femicide of Ariadna Fernanda and another for torture in the case of an alleged criminal
The highest judicial authority in the country, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), announced last Wednesday the increase in the sentence that confirms the constitutional jurisdiction of the Attorney General of Morelos, Uriel Carmona Gándara. The disclosure of this crucial document marked an important milestone in the case that has kept public opinion and political actors in suspense in the state of Morelos and at the national level.

The ruling in question was resolved in the session held on June 12, where the First Chamber of the autonomous judicial body highlighted the constitutional jurisdiction of the Morelos prosecutor. This statement implies that to subject Uriel Carmona Gándara to a judicial process, an intervention by the Chamber of Deputies through a trial of provenance is necessary.
The resolution was adopted with a majority of four to one vote of the members of the room. However, for this resolution to have legal effect, the preparation and subsequent publication of the increase was essential. This stage of the process was pending until Wednesday morning, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, in his morning press conference, indicated that the SCJN had not yet published the addition of the ruling regarding the legal situation of Prosecutor Carmona Gándara, who was held in the Federal Social Rehabilitation Center number 1, Altiplano, in Almoloya de Juárez, State of Mexico.
López Obrador accused the SCJN
The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, accused the ministers of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) of protecting the prosecutor of Morelos, Uriel Carmona, accused of hindering the clarification of the femicide of Ariadna Fernanda N, committed in October 2022.
The president made the accusation against the former public servant during the question and answer session of the press conference at the national palace this Wednesday when asking him who could be the most concerned about Carmona Gándara facing justice?

"I believe that they are protecting him in the Federal Judicial Branch; I think that the ministers of the Court, not all but the majority, I am going to tell you why: because all the protections that they are granting him or the majority, talk about that "He has jurisdiction and it turns out that the jurisdiction works in his case for alleged federal crimes, not when it comes to crimes under common jurisdiction, that is what the lawyers explain to me and the Court has already resolved what I am proposing to them," the president argued. .
"They have not made the addition. Who is responsible for publishing it, the presiding minister of the Court (Norma Piña) or a minister? Ah, Minister Margarita Ríos-Farjat, (rapporteur of the ruling) must have a lot of work," the president said.
And the Court sent the increase.
It cannot be removed
The official newspaper Tierra y Libertad, published a reform approved by the Legislature of Morelos, in which it specifies that the Prosecutor of Morelos cannot be removed from office, until there is a final and unassailable sentence against him, from a jurisdictional body or of the Congress of Morelos.
The reform came into force last Wednesday, after the Prosecutor of Morelos, Uriel Carmona, was linked to a criminal process for the fourth time. According to this adjustment to the Organic Law of Congress, the Prosecutor will be able to continue in his position, despite to the four accusations against him.
The reform modified articles 149, 150, 151 and 152 of the aforementioned law, a proposal that was presented by local deputy Julio César Solís Serrano of the Citizen Movement Party, with the objective of sheltering the Prosecutor who is currently imprisoned in the Penitentiary of high security of El Altiplano.
