Commemoration of Naval Day
The Fifth Naval Region commemorated the 194th anniversary of the "Navy Day of Mexico", honoring the Consolidation of National Independence with the surrender of Spanish troops on November 23, 1825 in San Juan de Ulúa , Veracruz. The event was held at the naval base of the Fifth Naval Region on Isla Mujeres, and led by its commander, Admiral José Luis Vergara Ibarra. Attendees included the state Governor, the Mayors is Isla Mujeres and Benito Juarez (Cancun), and representatives of the legislative and judicial branches, as well as naval, civil and military authorities.
After the speeches, Decorations of Perserverance were handed out to Naval personnel for years of uninterrupted Active Service for 45, 35, 25, 20, 15, and 10 years.
This day commemorates the conclusion of the Independence of Mexico, which was consolidated at sea on November 23, 1825 thanks to the courage, naval vision and boldness of Frigate Captain Pedro Sainz de Baranda and Borreyro and their sailors. They effected the surrender of the Spanish troops who had been reluctant to recognize the Independence of Mexico, and were entrenched for several years in the fort at San Juan de Ulúa.
On September 28, 1821, one day after Agustín de Iturbide triumphantly entered Mexico City, Independence was officially proclaimed. In Veracruz Spanish troops were still present, under the command of Brigadier José María Dávila, governor of the port, who refused to recognize Independence.
Governor offers to reinforce crime prevention
Governor Carlos Joaquín González offered to reinforce security and crime prevention measures to continue reducing crime rates throughout the state of Quintana Roo. In response to the document with requests from Isla Mujeres business owners, he said there are State Police throughout the state fulfilling their mandate, and his administration is working hard at strengthening the police institution, and are working to have more. He said they are working to improve at preventing and combating crime, as well as the administration and delivery of justice. He was attending the commemoration of the 194th anniversary of the Mexican Navy.
The Mayor said there is full coordination between the three levels of government, and the quick response with the arrest of two suspects last night is proof of this. He may have a meeting in the upcoming days with the business owners concerning their document with six points requesting more government action to prevent more crime, as well as wanting confidence testing in all of the municipal police officers, including the chief.
Two men arrested for attempted homicide
The Municipal Police of Isla Mujeres arrested two suspects who are allegedly responsible for an attempted execution in colonia La Gloria neighborhood, who were transferred to the Attorney General's Office in Cancun, on Friday at midnight.
Security protocols were activated in response to a 911 call, and the alleged attempted murder occurred shortly before 10pm on Friday, at Paseo de los Peces Avenue near Boquinete Street in from of the Mundaca Hacienda, near the Community Hospital.
The victim had been eating dinner at a taqueria a block up the street, where he was "lifted" (taken) and there were bullets fired, but apparently only to "scare" the victim, which occurred in an isolated place. The victims identity wasn't revealed.
The police responded to a 911 report by going to the location and didn't find anything unusual, except for two men pushing a motorcycle, who exhibited an elusive attitude in the presence of uniformed police, who found the suspects had two guns. In coordination with the State Police, they were turned over to the Attorney General's Office (FGR).
