Opening Of English-Language Mediation Center Delayed


The opening of an English-language mediation center in this city to hear disputes has been postponed until early 2010. Budget issues and additional time needed for training have caused the delay.

The center under the jurisdiction of Baja Attorney General Rommel Moreno will attempt to resolve disputes and disagreements before it becomes necessary to take them into the court system.

The program is called Centro de Justicia Alternitiva and will be in the Pabellon Grand shopping center at the northern entrance to the city.

"We have an estimated 14,000 expatriates who live here and about a million tourists a year," said Rosarito Mayor Hugo Torres. "This center will be a great step in resolving disagreements in English without court involvement."
