By: Samuel Valenzuela Ortega ........... Serious problems are coming upon Deputy Ernesto Roger Munro Jr, better known as Kiko Munro, when he denounced numerous real estate fraud against citizens of the United States in Puerto Peñasco, illicit where his wife Martha Herlinda Pivac Carrillo and his brother-in-law, the current municipal president, Jorge Pivac Carrillo, are involved.
It is a dispossession of one hectare property that was duly deeded in the name of Rick and Julie Hatch, located in the area of greater hotel and condominium development on the so-called Arizona beach, whose market value is around five million dollars and that the Pivac Carrillo family appropriated with an investment of 300 thousand dollars through the simulation of legal acts, through the good offices of the notary 76 in charge of Chastre Alexandra Encinas Leyva.
Congressman Walt Blackman
The tranza was in the times of Kiko Munro as elected municipal president of Puerto Peñasco and it is until now that those affected appealed to Arizona Congressman Walt Blackman to make the complaint public, after obvious procedural irregularities and the fear of those affected, obviously aware of how such controversies are settled in Mexico and machincuepas who kept their complaint of dispossession in limbo.
According to Rocaportenses attentive to the events of that thriving community, there is no doubt that behind that ratchet is the now vassal of Vicente Terán in the State Congress, since as is well known, "El Mijito" is the owner in turn of the franchise called PES, where Kiko migrated after not having the support of his father Neto Munro from the state leadership of the PAN.
They tell us that all that remains is for the fraudulent deed with the endorsement to come out there, also notarized in favor of the now local deputy or that he has constituted a partnership with his wife and brother-in-law, and that it would cost him to put his father.
Jorge Pivac Carrillo.
The fraudulent plot was simple: Rick and Julie Hatch, both originally from the US and regular visitors to that resort, bought a valuable beachfront property in the Puerto Peñasco area in 2013 and to operate it they erected the company Coca & Hatch Properties.
They did not count that in mid-June 2015, notary 78 certified documents about an alleged meeting between people associated with the Hatch company, which was a crude simulation of a legal act never carried out, but that served as a façade for a few days later, a certain Roberto Trahin Rodríguez, appointed in said fictitious assembly as general manager, request a loan from the now mayor of Puerto Peñasco, putting as a guarantee of payment those 10 thousand square meters located in the vicinity of the unfinished Home Port.
Obviously, since it was a tranza, the loan was not paid and therefore, as they had planned, the ownership of the land passed into the hands of the now municipal president, who at that time served as director of several companies and real estate developments, an operation already completed in the exercise of Kiko Munro as mayor and his wife as first lady, who is involved in the notarial act of the assembly not held, where the name of a member who had died in 2008 also appears.
That is, through the falsification of signatures, simulation of legal acts endorsed by a Notary Public, they assumed someone else's property; they borrowed and put it up as collateral for payment; The loan was not covered and easy, they stayed with it, and do as you want.
Accused of illicitly transferring the property to himself, the now mayor alleges that he is also the injured party, because as he sees things, he will be left without the money he lent to Trahin Rodríguez and without the property, although he must know well where to find that character, if he did not invent it. although such a dilemma must be resolved by the State Attorney General's Office, since in a press release it reported that it is already investigating this mess and that it has even issued an arrest warrant, it is assumed against that ghostly subject, of whom the only thing that is known is that he is close to the old Munro.
The fact is that the Arizona congressman endorsed that litigation and his claim sounds very strong after the suspicious entanglement of file 0426/2016, in which they point out alleged responsibilities against the Pivac Munro family, Notaries Public 28 – Ivonne Corral Gaona – and 76, the person in charge of the Public Registry of Property and the Director of Municipal Cadastre of Puerto Peñasco.
To finish it off, the legal representative of the Hatch in Mexico, hired for the recovery of their property, after seven years of being paid for their services, withdrew all the evidence he had presented before the court that handles the matter and in passing the claimants were threatened with death, which we can imagine was the straw that broke the camel's back and cause for the complaint to be made public.
Not for nothing Mr. Blackman pointed out that there is evidence that Pivac Carrillo would be using his position as mayor to prevent the Hatches from having access to information about the fraudulent operation. In addition, he said that there is a criminal investigation against the mayor that "ended abruptly and without explanation."
And the complaint commented on is made public a few days after Governor Alfonso Durazo Montaño accompanied the College of Notaries of Sonora in the assembly where the re-election of Julio Rascón Soria in the presidency was formalized and there summon them to transparency and that their exercise strictly adheres to honesty when intervening in matters between individuals.
Let's see what the prosecution does with this matter, given the great impact it has on investors on the other side that vivales take advantage of their positions of political power and government to take advantage of them, when Puerto Peñasco is a very important destination of capitals of that state in the southwest of the United States.
