Lawyer: Michoacán Government Obliges Cemeí to Change Lawyer In Exchange For Release

Translated by Valor for Borderland Beat

Morelia, Michoacán— Ignacio Mendoza Jiménez, who was the lawyer of Cemeí Verdía Cepeda, leader of the Community Police of Santa María de Ostula, in Aquila, said in a telephone interview that the Michoacán government obliged Verdía to change his layer in exchange for his release.

In that regard, “Nacho” Mendoza said verbatim: “the state government obliged Cemeí to give up his defense under the promise that they will release him, the government secretary, Adrían López Solís, was the one who operated this matter."
 
Adrían López Solís
In an 11 minute video, you can precisely see Cemeí Verdía with Mendoza and in front of two more lawyers, who as told by Mendoza, are public defenders, one by the name of Efraín and the other one with the surname of Quintana.

In the recording, it shows that those present dispute the fact that Cemeí is being obliged to appoint lawyers and Verdía on several occasions says that all he wants is to get out “of this mess,” referring to the jail where he is imprisoned, which is the David Franco Rodríguez Prison, also known as “Mil Cumbres,” located in the municipality of Charo.

Mendoza Jiménez is asked about the subject which he responds: “it is pathetic that they keep on politicizing justice and obliging people to do things that they do not want because the government is the one deciding, on the other hand very content because it goes to show what we have said from day one: that the issue of Cemeí Verdía, like others, is a political issue, it had nothing to do with justice.”


The lawyer was also questioned as to why the state government didn’t want him to be defending Cemeí and if he is considered to be an obstacle, he replied: “I don’t know, ask them (the government), I’m a citizen, I work, I pay taxes, I don’t know how they view me and I don’t care.”  The video shows that Verdía Cepeda signs some documents, in which he would be agreeing to be represented by the public defender.

  1. A promise from the Mexican government is the same as a promise from a used car salesman. Unless it is in writing, on a legal document that is bulletproof, that verbal promise is worthless. Mr. Verdia should have considered the possible scenarios driving the Michoacan's desire to replace his defense attorney. Perhaps, the defense attorney was extremely capable with the wherewithal to deliver a defense that the government's attorneys could not overcome in this mockery of the justice system. Could it have been that the defense attorney refused to play along with underhanded deals proffered by the government's attorneys? I seriously doubt that Mr. Verdia will be released any time soon from the hellhole where he is currently incarcerated. What he will discover is that he was deceived, just as so many other self defense members have been in past dealings with Mexican government officials.

  5. I wouldn't trust the Government in this matter, if they wanted to release him they would and it wouldn't matter wich lawyer represented him. I smell bull shit, Something similar happened to me here in the U.S with a crooked lawyer wich I paid $10,000 and a public defender beat the case after I fired that stupid paid attorney who just wanted me to sign a plea agreement for 4 years!. The law system is fishy and you gatta know who is working for your best interest, if not you will be gone for a long time. Real spit

    2. Mireles was told to accept "a deal" and when he did it made it harder for him to get out of jail, and "he has no one to blame for it but himself"...I bet la tuta has more chances to get free than the real AD, nestora salgado, cemei and mireles...
      no news about el americano's life in prison... eso si...

    1. He hasn't been released, yet. The case against him was dropped. The waiting isn't over. His release papers have yet to be signed by a judge.
