However, the three will look forward to the process in freedom because they have imposed a guarantee of one million 200 thousand pesos on the first and 120 thousand pesos on the other two former officials. During the hearing, the three were potentially responsible for the sale of 12 million pesos, a property with a value of more than 32 million pesos, which was not even held by the municipality; Moreover, they have never given any account of the use of this resource, because there is no data about their entry into the municipal treasury.
