Business in Zona Rio Closed Down (Uniradio Informa, 1/17/13)

TIJUANA, BC - Approximately 20 people were left without work after the closure of a business located on land in front of the Mercado Hidalgo in Tijuana's Zona Rio revealed Omar Prado, responsible for the place.

"The boys came to close me down. One of them was identified as an employee of the Town Council, who would be named Florentino Martinez. He showed me his identification from the IFE that supposedly accredits him as City Hall worker," he said.

He mentioned that the permit expired on the 15th. "The contract was until the 15th and they just went to renew it; in fact we were thinking of staying here 1 year, to sell pigs, pork, ribs, soda and food... there are about 20 waiters, cooks, and woodcutters who are now talking bad that we were closed down", he concluded.

TIJUANA, BC - In order to meet the needs of industry, the city has begun implementation of surveys, reported Bernardo Padilla, Director of Municipal Social Development.
