Baja California State University (UABC) acquitted in Agrarian Court in the “Parcela 44” case

The autonomous University of Baja California (UABC) was acquitted by the District II of the Agrarian Unitary Court in Mexicali, in the legal complaint submitted by Ejido Coahuila claiming the restitution of a piece of ground called PARCELA 44 in Spanish, where the UABC units Mexicali I and Mexicali II are located on Benito Juarez Boulevard.

UABC General Attorney, David Alvarez, explained that as of 1969 the provisional possession of the afore mentioned piece of land was granted to the UABC with conformity on the landowning authorities as well as the Ejido Coahuila (which is the entity who owned and ceded the land to the university) and as a compensation the UABC ceded the ground allocations 25, 26 and 27 in Colonia Villarreal with its respective water disposition permit, an agreement that was agreed by the Ejido assembly.

This comes as the end of a several years long dispute between the UABC and the Ejido Coahuila assembly, and EJIDO is an organization that owns, includes and manages the farming and watering permits and/or licenses and plays the role of ruling entity of a defined land demarcation.
