Today he sent a letter to the media, it is unknown if Agencia Esquema is one of them, but he says the reason he met with Tuta, is that he threatened to "kidnap one of my sons".
"I was required to meet with Mr. Servando Gómez Martínez, that was to be held at an elementary school in the town of Tumbiscatío, I went against my will, if I did not comply, he would kidnap one of my children. "
Hernández Ramírez says that indigenous communities Pómaro and El Coire, belonging to Aquila were with him that day.
Teachers Calvillo Ray Montes, Victor Palacios Lugardo Hector Arroyo Ramirez, Efrain Arroyo Chavez Chavez Rumuel Flores, Noah Avila Méndez and Narciso Mendez, among others, he says are with him.
"And they can testify what happened with Mr. Servando Gómez Martínez in this public meeting, in view of all the community."
The PRI mayor added that his administration, which ends in 2015, has had to confront new situations and nobody can blame him that he stood up for his people, and the struggle that began with the issues of the indigenous community of San Miguel Aquila and the mining company agreement granting royalties to the nearly five hundred families in the Nahua people.
Hernandez may be truthful in what he has said.
The meeting place was not at Tuta's man cave, it did appear to be at a school, and that there was an audience or group he is speaking to. It was a structured meeting, Tuta is using and or taking notes.
Tuta has not provided a video that narrative is heard. He has only provided two screenshot images.It is possible Tuta wanted to frame Hernanadez, and assumed people would believe in Hernandez' willingness to work with him by seeing a couple of photos, because the video demonstrated otherwise. Hernandez does not seem to be excited to be there, based on the two photos. The video would be helpful but as it stands, Hernandez may have met with Tuta under duress.
If that truly is the case, Hernandez better move his children far away from Michoacán.
