Eduardo Quintero, Hipólito Mora’s lawyer, reported that his client will be set free by tonight after the detention order was revoked against him.
The lawyer said in an interview with Radio Fórmula that there was no evidence found to keep his client in jail; Mora was decreed by a judge on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. (Additional info)
“He is getting the release of two processes”, Quintero said; since he announced a few days ago that they opened a new inquiry for alleged illegal deprivation of liberty.
He noted that his client could be released between 22:00 and 23:00 hours today (Friday).
Mora was arrested on Tuesday, March 11 on charges of his alleged involvement in the murder of Rafael Sánchez Moreno, "El Pollo", and his companion, José Luis Torres, “El Niño”, who were found on a truck.
“There is insufficient evidence to be able to determine that he was involved in the killings”, Quintero said.
He added that Hipólito is already aware of his release order and after he gets out of jail, he will go for a coffee at the center of Morelia.
