After offering a detail of the related causes, Judge Ramos Padilla requested that each of these judicial agencies provide “the starting date (of the investigation), defendants, plaintiffs, espionage operations investigated, modus operandi, current status of the cause and any other element that may be useful for the substantiation of the present “.
Ramos Padilla also asked his colleagues “copies of the relevant procedural acts, such as tax requirements, merit orders, finalized or pending competition claims, among others. “
In parallel, Ramos Padilla requested that the complaints, the defenses and the public prosecutor’s office be heard of his request, so that within a period of five days they be issued on “the relevance, convenience and opportunity to unify those processes; and, where appropriate, the procedural channels by which this should be implemented “.
