regarding bungalows Ley, playa madera zihuatanejo
Dear Frommers,
It was Mexico on Five Dollars a Day that brought me and my family to san Miguel de Allende in the 1960's. I was 13 at the time I
read your book so many times I had it memorized. The word 'Zihuatanejo' fascinated me, and I flew in from Mexico City with my older sister and friends in '63 and '64 to visit Zihuatanejo.
My mother bought a home in San Miguel and we lived there every summer for many years.
After my mother's death I came to Zihuatanejo where I invested my inheritance in two properties and started a vacation rental business Zihuatanejo Connection, first on Goggle under keywords zihuatanejo vacation rentals.
Unfortunately I was victim of corruption in violation of laws against the environment.
The owner of Hotel Brisas del Mar overbuilt by three times in excess of use of soil, leading to my losing half my full view of the bay from Casa Leigh y Loros, Club Madera. I initialed an lawsuit for view rights on behalf of the three owners of apartments in Club Madera. One owner was Gladys Rocio Ley, owner of Bungalows Ley. She had just inherited the hotel fro her mother. Gladys Ley took a 40k bribe from hotel Brisas del Mar and withdrew from the suit.
1. I witnessed gladys Ley cut down eight palms in sand each one is a 8 year federal crime sentence.
2. She then built two rental units in 'federal zone' designated 'for the use and pleasure of the mexican people' never to be used for income except with pool or food concession.
3. gladys has fourteen signs up under her palapas to make sure no poor mexican ever dreams of trying to sit there although they have the right,
4. she defied city commissioners who protested stating it was not in their jurisdiction
5, the staircase belongs to the city she invaded it and privatized it
6. worst of all she has hidden the original septic tank never excavated which would be a 30,000 usd fine and costs if water company where to perform its duty
As a result of my bearing witness and trying to bring in the authorities she commenced to lawlessly commit more than 10 federal and penal crimes against me including perjury, libel, paid off police to break down my door without a warrant and accuse me of marijuana possession -- judged not guilty, had her employee jump over my balcony and assault me while she trespassed, entered my house, dragged me out on-- the street and tied me up with electric cable saying 'I am going to tie you up to a cross and burn you in the cancha,'
she bought off the district attorney and accused me of intent to homicide with a --tiny 50 cent ikea fruit -- knife, for which I spent nine months in jail -- released for lack of evidence. She has cost me my business, my ability to earn a living, my reputation -- published five libelous articles about me in the press. you can verify this with local consul Debra L. Mione
