The Board of Directors of Cooperativa La Cruz Azul called new assemblies. Among the various items on the agenda are requests for the approval of reports from the dissident group.
A source within the cement company confirmed to Infobae Mexico that they are looking for Víctor Velázquez and José Antonio Marín , heads of said group, to be present. “The partners in general are summoned, including the dissidents. In reality, this act is for them, precisely so that they give a reason for their actions, ”he explained.
However, the source pointed out that “unfortunately” they have not received a notification from the two characters confirming their presence before the other members of the Cooperative.
And is that the Board of Directors, chaired by Federico Sarabia , called sectional assemblies. These will be held on three different dates and in three different places.

On September 26, one will be held at the Lagunas plant, Oaxaca, and on September 28 another at the Ciudad Cooperativa Cruz Azul plant , in the state of Hidalgo. The third will be on October 2 at the Gran Sur facilities in Mexico City.
It will be the presentation of the Administration and Surveillance councils, which were elected by more than 500 partners on August 26. In addition, it will serve for Víctor Velázquez and José Antonio Marín to give reasons for their actions , focused on seeking control of the cement company.
They will also request a report from the dissidents on the 447 trust . They will request that the assets that were placed in their possession be detailed, as well as describe what damages or patrimonial danger were generated with the same trust.

The second report is for the closure of the Corporate Building , located in Gran Sur. They will exhort the two men to give an explanation of the impediment of entry to the working partners and the reasons for the alteration of the facades with metal plates, electrified fences .
The third will be for them to explain their performance in the Cruz Azul AC Social and Cultural Sports Club and another one due to the ignorance of the call for the General Assembly, which was held on August 26.
Finally, in the sectional assemblies, they will seek the approval of “forensic audits” in different years. One of them is focused on the commercial management, which was in charge of Víctor Manuel Velázquez.
And it is that for several months, the dissidents have taken several legal actions to take control of the Cruz Azul Cooperative. The most prominent are the criminal complaints against Guillermo Álvarez Cuevas , CEO of the company and president of the soccer team.

For this reason, the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) and the Attorney General's Office (FGR) are investigating the celestial manager for various crimes, including organized crime and fraudulent administration. So far, Billy Álvarez has not appeared before the Mexican authorities .
In addition, Víctor Velázquez and José Antonio Marín managed to get a judge from Mexico City to recognize them as presidents of the Administration and Surveillance Councils . Thanks to this, they obtained an order for the police in the capital of the country to evict the partners from the facilities of Gran Sur.
In turn, both have presented La Noria , where the Cruz Azul team trains and is administered. In various photos, some published by local media, it is seen that they engage in conversations with the footballers , as well as with Jaime Ordiales , sports director and highest authority of the club in the absence of Billy Álvarez.

However, everything seems to indicate that Víctor Velázquez and José Antonio Marín will not appear to give reasons for their actions. “We make an attentive appeal to them to refrain from following up on this new illegal call,” the two indicated in a video published on an unverified Twitter account of the Cooperative.
They argue that the General Assembly of September 26 should not have been carried out on the recommendations of a judge in Mexico City. They insisted that this assembly will be held until November 26.
