Antonio Lara Duque, a lawyer for the Zeferino Ladrillero Human Rights Center, explained that the Judicial Power of the Nation denied admitting it because they are high-impact crimes.
“In the Amnesty law it is perfectly clear that a statement by a public body for the defense of Human Rights, regardless of the crime, is appropriate for amnesty,” he said.
“The National Human Rights Commission made it clear that they were victims of human rights violations, as the CODHEM already said, and recognizing that there was a violation of human rights leaves the Judiciary in bad shape.”
Lara Duque explained that these 23 men are serving sentences in the Almoloya de Juárez, Nezahualcóyotl and Texcoco prisons, for the crimes of homicide, kidnapping and extortion.
