IMSS sues Sonora government for day care center deaths

Daniel Karam, the head of the Social Security Institute (IMSS), announced that the IMSS had sued the Sonora State Finance Ministry for civil damages related to the fire in the ABC Day Care Center in Hermosillo. The toll reached 47, with the death of a 2-year old girl today. The Finance Ministry was the day care center’s co-tenant, and Karam said, “This fire was caused by the negligence of those responsible for the warehouse used by the State of Sonora.” Columnist Ricardo Alemán noted, “The governor of Sonora, Eduardo Bours, has become a dead weight for the PRI. … The tragic scandal that killed the [47] children, the offensive family business of Bours’ relatives with day care centers, the phony state investigation, and today’s federal lawsuit … are a lethal media blow which could wind up painting Sonora blue [the color of the PAN].” (Excelsior 6/22, Universal 6/22)
