Puerto Vallarta on alert after threats of more violence from criminal gangs

The Attorney General’s Office remains on alert after threats that have continued to be received after the assassination of two investigating agents in Tlajomulco on June 21, in addition to another attack that same day in the Auditorio neighborhood in Zapopan.

The head of the agency, Gerardo Octavio Solís Gómez, did not rule out that there are still more attacks to come, not only against personnel of the Prosecutor’s Office, but also against other elements within the State Protection Services.

“We are in a state of alert. We take a series of internal reinforcements, a series of precautions. We have extended this circumstance to other corporations. We do not leave aside that there could be some aggression or some similar circumstances against public servants related to public security,” he explained.

He added that these threats have also been received in Puerto Vallarta. “What we did was reinforce each and every unit, Puerto Vallarta was no exception”.

In spite of the threats that state and municipal authorities have received from the organized crime, Governor Enrique Alfaro Ramírez made it clear that they will not be intimidated and that the operations and fight against crime continue.
