President accuses Minister Laynez of halting Acapulco reconstruction funds before SCJN


News Team

The Legal Department of the Federal Executive (CJEF) has filed an appeal before the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) for the suspension of the extinction of 13 trusts of the Judicial Branch of the Federation (PJF) by Minister Javier Laynez Potisek. The suspension was approved in Congress on December 5.

The CJEF described the suspension as “illegal” and argued that the judge was not “impartial” in the case, having issued previous opinions against the reform. They stated that the extinction of the 13 trusts, which represent just over 15 billion pesos, violates the right of the workers of the Judicial Branch and access to justice. However, the Ministry claims that labor benefits do not depend on these funds, as they are included in the 2024 Expenditure Budget.

Laynez Potisek is accused of stopping these resources from being used to help the victims and rebuild the Port of Acapulco, which was devastated by Hurricane Otis. The Legal Department of the Presidency urged to “honor the commitment” expressed by the president of the SCJN. The Secretary of the Interior, Luisa María Alcalde, called on the minister to reconsider that these resources can be used to raise the beach destination.

The Legal Department of the Presidency presented a petition to the SCJN for Minister Laynez Potisek to declare himself unable to hear about the actions of unconstitutionality, which was unanimously rejected by the Plenary Court, considering that it was inadmissible. Born in Torreón, Coahuila, Javier Laynez studied Law at the Regiomontana University and a doctorate in Public Law at the University of Paris, France. He has been a minister of the SCJN since 2015.
