We are communicating to you that we have decided to renounce the legal defense of Dr. José Manuel Mireles Valverde
- Talia Vázquez Alatorre and Salvador Molina Navarro
Dr. Mireles and his family have decided to accept the political agreement conditioned with the Secretariat of the Interior (SEGOB), in order to obtain his freedom. In order for this to happen, they have entrusted Father Gregorio López Jerónimo to head these talks. Such agreement does not include the more than 370 autodefensas who are still locked up in various prisons. The pact marks the exit of Dr. Mireles to some; to some this seems embarrassing.
We deeply regret the decision of Dr. Mireles and his family. We will continue to lead efforts to obtain the release of all of the autodefensas through the Amnesty Law that is already being discussed in the Senate.
Given that the causes that gave rise to the autodefensa movement remain in force, we are absolutely committed to the cause, and with the others that unite the people of Mexico in regards to the tragedy and impunity taking place.
The proposed Amnesty Law at the time will benefit Dr. Mireles, who we have a lot of respect for, and unfortunately, who we are sure that once again will be betrayed by Commissioner Alfredo Castillo Cervantes.
