Screen_Shot_2014-11-12_at_7.59.44_PMAfter damning allegations from the Cervantes family last week alleging that a sitting Government Minister was implicated with the murder of Ramon Cervantes Sr, today the recording played was used against the family with a file claim to sue. On November 9th, Attorney Rodwell Williams of Barrow & Williams wrote to Ramon Cervantes Jr., threatening to sue on behalf of Deputy Prime Minister Gaspar Vega.


The letter spoke on the recording aired on several news stations and we quote, “in their natural and ordinary meaning, the words mean and were understood to mean that Minister Gaspar Vega: was 1. Connected to the Mexican mafia 2. Paid money for the killing of Ramon Cervantes Sr, 3. Sent someone to kill Ramon Cervantes Sr, 4. Is corrupting the police and 5. Is engaged in criminal activity,” end quote.


The file claims that the “words were baseless, untrue and quote “amounted to a very serious libel on our client and have caused him considerable distress and embarrassment and have put him and his family in fear for his own safety and well-being,” end quote.


The letter goes on to say that “in the circumstances, our client (VEGA) requires of you (CERVANTES JR) as a matter of urgency, a full and unequivocal public retraction and apology in terms to be approved by us, and an undertaking not to repeat the allegations,” end quote. Cervantes Junior was given until November 17th to offer a retraction and apology or they will file a suit for libel without any further notice.

We were unable to get a response from Ramon “monchie” Cervantes today. We’ll keep an eye on this story as it develops.
