The federal representative of Morena for the state of Puebla, Benjamín Huerta, is subject to investigation in the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico City, after being accused of alleged sexual abuse against a fifteen-year-old boy.
He was arrested on Wednesday, April 21, in a hotel on Roma Street, Juárez neighborhood, in the Cuauhtémoc district of Mèxico City, and presented before the Sexual Crimes Prosecutor’s Office.
Officials from the Ángel-Rosa Sector reported that hotel employees detained the representative since a 15-year-old adolescent assured them that he tried to sexually abuse him.
According to his testimony, he came to this place for “work reasons”, but the deputy began to “touch” him.
In his first statements, the complainant told police from the Secretariat for Citizen Security (SSC) that he has a working relationship with the representative, who brought him from Puebla.
He indicated that this morning Benjamín ‘H’ wanted to sexually abuse him, for which he notified the manager and employees of the hotel, who detained him and requested the support of police officers from the Ángel-Rosa Sector.
According to witnesses, the representative began to tell them that he could not be detained because “he has “fuero“(immunity).”
The FGJ confirmed that the defendant’s defense “has presented various documents to prove that his client has constitutional jurisdiction” in order to leave the MP.
He pointed out that he is part of an ongoing investigation for this fact and that personnel from the Forensic Investigation and Expert Services Coordination try to gather test data, so they went to the hotel.
The Investigative Police are looking for possible witnesses, as well as images from public and private surveillance cameras to determine what happened.
However, due to its constitutional jurisdiction, the Mexico City Attorney General’s Office released Morena’s federal representative, Benjamin “H”, accused of sexual abuse against a minor.
The Attorney Generals Office told El Financiero that if the Public Ministry of the Prosecutor’s Office for Sexual Crimes accredits data proving that the legislator “touched” a 15-year-old boy, “it would be in a position to request a judgment of provenance from Congress to defuse it ”.
This Wednesday, April 22, the 15-year-old boy affirmed that the legislator of the state of Puebla tried to abuse him in a room of the Exe Cities hotel, on Roma Street, Colonia Juárez, Cuauhtémoc district of Mexico City.
In his first statements, the boy told police officers from the Secretariat for Citizen Security (SSC) that he has a working relationship with the representative, who brought him from Puebla.
The boy indicated that this morning he denounced Benjamín “H” before hotel personnel, who detained the accused and requested the support of police officers from the Ángel-Rosa Sector, from the Cuauhtémoc district of Mexico City.
The officers protected the minor and after reading Benjamin’s rights, they transferred him to the Public Ministry of the Sexual Crimes Prosecutor’s Office.
The FGJ confirmed that the defendant’s defense “has presented various documentaries to prove that his client has constitutional immunity,” (because he is a “Diputado“) reason why he was released.
An investigation file has been integrated due to this fact and personnel from the Forensic Investigation and Expert Services Coordination try to gather evidence in the hotel room to determine if there was a crime or not.
