At noon this Monday, August 8, criminal lawyer Óscar Francisco Aguirre Rubio was murdered inside his office located a few meters from Cereso La Mesa in Tijuana.
Information obtained by ZETA indicates that around 12:00 noon detonations by firearms were reported in offices located on Los Charros avenue in the Sandoval neighborhood, where two men were injured.
Elements of the Municipal Police and Red Cross paramedics arrived at the office marked with number 21 interior 1, who saw two men who were in the waiting room, one of them, identified as Oscar Francisco Aguirre Rubio , with a facial injury and no vital signs, and the other with a shrapnel wound, who was taken to a hospital for medical attention.
In recent days, Óscar Aguirre, a member of the Guild of Criminal Lawyers of Mexico, told ZETA that he feared for his life, after the murder of his colleague Evaristo García Memije, riddled with bullets on May 26 on Cerro Colorado Sur street in the neighborhood. Jose Lopez Portillo in Tijuana.
“Here what it is about is denouncing that we are a vulnerable group, Mr. Evaristo was a controversial lawyer, a fighter, obviously many people did not like him, but we do not know who they are. We have to have a protection mechanism because we are vulnerable to being killed by anyone,” said Óscar Aguirre.
And he added that “I fear for my life, for my freedom, because we are battle lawyers, we are not lawyers to have coffee with the Secretary General or with the Municipal President as most Bar Associations do. We want the prosecutor to do his job, to get his salary back.”
Despite the implementation of a security operation, those responsible have not been captured.
