Members of the Mexican League for the Defense of Human Rights (Limeddh) demanded the investigation of crimes against defenders of individual rights, 10 years after the murder of Digna Ochoa.
At a press conference, the group coordinator, Isaac Torres Carmona said that this murder remains unpunished, while the government has become complicit in endorsing this fact it was a suicide, “version that is not credible” he said.
Accompanied by the leader of the Organization of Indigenous Zapotec (OPIZ), Juan Sosa Maldonado, urged the authorities to know the truth behind each of the murders and made the call to federal and state governments to ensure the safety of human rights defenders.
“The leaders of groups or advocates, live in a constant suicide because the Mexican state provides impunity to the murderers,” he complained.
Also, Sosa Maldonado, reproached in Oaxaca, intellectual and material authors of murder walking in the center, as did former Gov. Ulises Ruiz Ortiz last weekend, at what the current government so far has not found sufficient evidence to proceed against him.
So both human rights advocates called on the authorities to clarify the murders were caused by repression.
