No Response in Chiapas

Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, August 21, 2013
The around 300 indigenous of Los Altos, who today marched in the capital of Chiapas to demand the liberation of Alberto Patishtán Gómez, and demonstrated outside the seat of federal justice, found no progress or response.
Representatives of the demonstrators were received in the first collegiate tribunal of the twentieth circuit, in whose hands is the case for recognition of innocence number 4/2012, promoted by the defence of the Tzotzil professor, who has served 13 years in prison and faces a sentence of 60 years, accused of crimes it has been shown he did not commit.
Despite the time which has passed, the activists were notified that the reporting judge who will present the case to the judges has still not been designated. This can take at least ten days or more, as has been occurring for months, ever since the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation declined to hear the case and turned it over to the tribunal questioned today.
In a document addressed to Governor Manuel Velasco Coello, the Pueblo Creyente organization asked him to “make use of his position to speak with Minister Juan Silva Meza, president of the Federal Judiciary Council, in order that, together with the magistrates of the first tribunal, when they resolve the case for recognition of innocence they conduct it, as we believe they can do, with due impartiality, objectivity, professionalism, transparency, humanity and social commitment.”
