Guillermo Álvarez Cuevas , president of Cruz Azul , could not maintain his small legal victory obtained a few weeks ago. A court in Mexico City denied the definitive suspension against the arrest warrant from which it sought to protect itself.
The Fourth District Court of Amparo in Criminal Matters denied the definitive suspension against the acts and the authorities that requested their arrest , according to the courts consulted by Infobae México .
On August 31, the same court had already granted him the provisional suspension against the same acts claimed . On that occasion, the judge imposed measures of assurance so that he did not evade the action of justice.
It is worth remembering that the whereabouts of the also general director of the Cooperativa La Cruz Azul is unknown . Jorge Hernández, a spokesman for the same cement company, commented at a press conference that the leader was possibly organizing his legal strategy.

Likewise, Billy Álvarez has not appeared before the Mexican authorities , after an arrest warrant against him and other executives of the cement company was released in a federal investigation. The sector related to Billy in the Cooperative assures that these orders violated due process, since the defendants were not notified at first, as established by the Federal Penal Code.
And it is that there has been an internal confrontation that has lasted several months. The dissidents accused Guillermo Álvarez before the Mexican authorities , who are investigating him for organized crime, in addition to other crimes.
They also took over the corporate facilities, located in the Gran Sur of Mexico City, on August 6. Police from the capital carried out the order of a judge to seize the property and were handed over to the Administration and Surveillance Council, headed by Víctor Velázquez and José Antonio Marín.
However, the Ordinary Assembly of the Cooperativa La Cruz Azul was held at the end of August. More than 500 partners, some with power of attorney, voted to elect the representatives of the Board of Directors, as well as the Supervisory Board.

After the elections, the people who took office made themselves known. Federico Sarabia is the president of the Board of Directors and Arturo Santos is its secretary. In turn, Alberto López holds the position of president of the Vigilance Council and Alfredo Cano is the secretary.
Now, this Board of Directors has called several sectional assemblies . These will take place between September and October in three different places: the Lagunas plant, Oaxaca; the Ciudad Cooperativa Cruz Azul plant, Hidalgo; and the general offices of Mexico City.
