Tamaulipas - The president of the Human Rights Committee of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Raymundo Ramos, said the prosecutor of Military Justice, Jose Luis Chavez Garcia, "lied" in the case of slain children, Bryan and Martin Almanza Salazar. The two were killed on April 3, 2010 in their personal vehicle while traveling with their parents.
He said that the version of facts given by the military prosecutor about Martin, who was riding in the back of the truck, died from grenade shrapnel, however, the Committee on Human Rights presented a picture where you can clearly see the back of the child has two bullets wounds of large caliber.
This is evidence that can't be refuted and which contradicts the official version given by the federal government that is trying to present misinformation to the public and they have not made any effort tell the truth of what really happened.
Ramos said that Chávez García had mentioned that in his investigation the three offices of prosecution are involved: that of the state of Tamaulipas, the Federal Ministry General and the Military.
Ramos maintains during his interview that in the sequence of event there are several inconsistencies, for example one is an April 17 statement from the Attorney General of Tamaulipas when it was reported that the supposedly confrontation occurred at 10 pm however Ramos maintains that the event involving Bryan's family and Martin happened at 7:30PM.
"We understand that the federal government intends to put together two entirely different incidents into one to absolve the army of their responsibility," he said.
Ramos said that in the first place the family of the boys has been left out of the investigation and the PGR has not allowed them access. Second is what was presented today by the federal government was just information of alleged facts and were not part of the preliminary investigation because the Attorney General of the Republic (PGR) should have been presenting the facts of the actual investigation.
