Oaxaca prosecutors said they received the link to the trial of a man who seized property in San Felipe del Agua in the state capital.

Portal Redacción mentioned that A. Mendiola and her family have investigative portfolios of at least seven families in the Costa region, including the case of Adriana Ricárdez Hofmann, who shared her testimony and verified what they lived:
“It all started in 2008 when the Mendiola Cotiers and an attorney representing them visited the Municipal Property Commissioner’s Office of San Pedro Pochutla, Oaxaca, arguing that they owned a property in Playa Panteón that was actually mine came from family over 40 years ago.
“The Mendiolas claimed to have no original documents, more than what they claim to be proof from their father, and only notarized copies (that’s their policy, they certify manipulated copies with notaries because the original documents don’t exist).
“We present all documentation that demonstrates our peaceful and continuous ownership for more than 40 years, supported by all of our neighbors and the community.
“Months later, his lawyer appeared with a group of armed people. They brought metal bars and posts, pretended to enclose the property, threatened my mother and father with handguns, clubs and machetes, including two armed with goat horns who, without identification, claimed to be part of the state minister’s police force. We have photos of that.
“When they realized that something very bad was happening, all the residents of the Playa Panteón neighborhood reacted and immediately came to arrest them, as did the representative of the Puerto Ángel agency. In the presence of the community representative and already surrounded, these people were told to back off and leave the sole and rightful owners of the said property alone.
“In the following days, the Mendiola Cottiers, using the same apocryphal documents, will file another lawsuit against Acapulquillo, a neighboring cove, where six other families intend to dispossess their lands and homes, for which a meeting will be called at the municipal authority , where in turn the President of the Commissariat, Jesús Reyes, informs them at this moment that their documents are false and will not be recognized by said administration.”
