200 Taxi drivers march in protest in Rosarito

Wait until you find out why they are protesting.

Around 200 transportation workers marched on the main street of Playas de Rosarito Tuesday morning to urge the removal of the recently named police chief, Francisco Castro Trenti, who is accused of favoritism after an accident last week involving a taxi driver and an American tourist.

The march began around 10:45AM, on bulevar Benito Juárez and headed towards the city hall. The drivers marched with signs in hand, urging the removal of the police chief, and they were accompanied by a burro

For their part, the Rosarito police secured the city hall. Several police units gathered on the city hall parking lot, as well as in front of the doors, although they did not restrict citizen access. Several policemen made a "human wall" with shields to prevent the demonstrators from entering.

This all started yesterday, when Rosarito taxi drivers met with the police chief, Francisco Castro Trenti, and demanded information about an accident which happened last Wednesday, July 18, involving one of their co-workers and an American tourist.

The police chief told the taxi drivers that the police investigator in charge of investigating the accident, José Asunción Aispuro Doiles, has been removed from the investigation and transferred elsewhere. He was removed because the chief of police determined that the police investigator had intimidated the American visitor to force her to sign a document to pay for the repair of damages to the taxi and to admit to being responsible for the accident, when she was not. Because of this, the police investigator now has to face a disciplinary process as, according to Chief Fernando Castro, he misrepresented the facts.

The Rosarito taxi drivers are upset because the unwritten rule has been broken where in any accident between a Mexican and an American, the American is always guilty.
