Police sources at the Michoacan State Attorney General, confirmed Wednesday morning, they found the body of Octavio Contreras, who formerly worked with Federal Consumer Protection in Michoacan and former also as the secretary general of the PAN.
The victim was found at the gates of City Hall, in the heart of the city of Apatzingán. , Passers-by the gates alerted authorities to the discovery of a deceased person in the early hours of Wednesday.
Octavio Contreras, originally from Apatzingán, was a successful entrepreneur who was involved in the sale of wooden furniture.
PAN state leadership condemned the act and made a strong appeal to federal and state authorities, those supposedly responsible for providing security, to seek justice for the action to achieve an end to the impunity for the wave of violence and insecurity that plagues the region Tierra Caliente and the rest of Michoacan.
PAN is appalled, disgusted and has become essentially incapacitated by such violence that has befallen the Michoacan victims. This clearly paints a picture of the political institution, said Miguel Angel Chavez, PAN leader in the state of Michoåcan, referring to the kidnapping and subsequent execution of Octavio Contreras in Apatzingán.
He pointed out the alarming fact that, despite the official discourse with the state and federal authorities, impunity rules and officials are never responsible for the violence, or the investigations conducted, he said in an interview with Radio News at UM the University Michoacan de San Nicolás de Hidalgo. therefore National Action Party must rethink the conditions in which they are conducting policy in the country and the state, which is becoming more precarious and difficult, accused the leader. "It is unacceptable that in broad daylight cpmmandos circulate in trucks looking to abduct, ostensibly armed citizens kidnapping in a place where there is supposed to be fenced security. Where is the Army, Federal Police, and the state and municipal levels of police?/Something was very wrong in this case, if anything, the authorities are quick to accuse the PAN leader."
"No more crimes! Government must stop the violence in Michoacan, we demand results in the investigations and sanctions to the fullest extent of the law to those responsible for this cowardly assassination, including the many others against, not only the PAN, but the many Michoacan families who also suffer the pain of these crimes and have to deal with impunity in the state authority." said the leader of the PAN in Michoacan.
It should be recalled that PAN faced with great sorrow, the grief of not only their candidate but, also mayor and deputy for the district Apatzingán. He added the crimes PAN has endured this last year, among which, are included young Marisela Delgado, Pedro Cordova, Town Clerk of Tanhuato, and Rafael Carmona, the Sagarpa official.
Miguel Angel Chavez said, "that for the moment there is little information about the underhanded crime of Octavio Contreras, as it is so early. "The authority, in any case, should provide the elements for the investigation because that's what they get paid to do, but it is too early," he said, noting that "in these cases we must coordinate with Octavio's family to avoid increasing the risks to them. Again today we call upon the authorities of the three Government orders to grant the necessary guarantees so citizens can live in peace and tranquility of which we are entitled. Relatives of Octavio Contreras we express our deepest condolences and our solidarity in this difficult moment."
Days later a local MP and a Jalisco lawmaker were assaulted , as they drove towards a municipality in the Tierra Caliente, though both were bodyguards and were monitored.
