Journalist and owner of 4TV channel kidnapped in Michoacán

Posted by DD from material at Debate

Dove hunting season (which is the first legal hunting season of the year) in Mexico doesn't start until August 21 but it almost seems that some people in the country can't wait for legal hunting season to begin.  They are hunting journalist.  
 
It is almost incomprehensible that only 3 days after the murder of Javier Valdez  in Culiacan, Guerrero and the uproar that arose after his killing,  Salvador Adame Pardo, a journalist and owner of the 4TV channel in the municipality of Francisco J. Múgica, Michoacán , was kidnapped Thursday at about 19:00 hours in the Nueva Italia community, Michoacán.   Six journalist have already been killed this year Mexico, family and friends of Adame are hoping he does not become number 7.  

 A group of armed and masked men detained Adame Thursday evening at a water purification plant and took him away by force in a black van towards Nuevo Corondiro.   There are still no clues as to the whereabouts of the Michoacán television broadcaster.   


Local media reported he had been a critic of the mayor of the town of Mujica .  He had received threats on his cell phone.   

Last April Adame  had been arrested by elements of the State Public Security  Secretariat when a group of women were protesting at City Hall about some action of the Mayor.  He wrote on his Facebook page that after the State Police had evacuated the building the police beat him and his wife and 11 other women who had been evacuated from the City Hall.
 

 "The Special Operations Group beat my wife and 11 women . " It is very unfortunate to see these defenseless women being beaten, I have no words to describe, "Adame Pardo wrote in his Facebook account.

Even though there were witnesses at the water purification plant that saw the abduction by a group of armed masked men and saw them forcibly take him away, when the family tried to file a compliant about the abduction they were told by the state’s anti-kidnapping prosecutor that they must wait 62 hours from the time of Adame’s disappearance before making a formal complaint.  It had been 15 hours then since his abduction and there had been no statement from the government advising the public of the kidnapping..

It was later claimed that  information of the possible kidnapping against the journalist  was not made generally known to the public by the authorities so as not to hinder the investigations of the case.

The Inter American Press Association said Adame had stopped covering stories of violence several years ago due to pressure from drug traffickers.  But he continued to report on local government corruption.   

The kidnapping came less than 24 hours after President  Pena Nieto  announced new measures to protect journalists, six of whom have been murdered so far this year.  

Silvano Aureoles, Governor of Michoacán , was one of the Governors who did not attend the meeting that the federal government convened last May 17 where they were announced.

    1. This man has been deprived of his freedom THREE times in the last four years and yet continues to try to do this work .
      He was going to cover an outbreak of violence by criminals in which 30 vehicles were burned.
      What do you find funny about that ?

      Plus, that's an insult to animals.

      Am I missing something?

  5. It's Looking like threatening tactics from unknown individuals to halt investigation took a dramatic turn.
    Another example of how reporters face perils for exposing corruption. Moreover how municipal officials disregard the transparencies which took place. Despite the fact of being kidnapped with testimony of witnesses, process of filing a report takes 60 hrs . Such incompetence from those whose duty is to serve and protect. Furthermore the tenacity to appeal the concerns of those voices with discretion of investigations.
    Let's just pray that no tragedy has occurred to a good man. Like many who face the reality of speaking out and protesting against widespread corruption.

    2. 3:25 when I, a mexican people, stand, and see, the results,
      of a 15 years war for profit against a peoples armed with not much more than rocks and sand and private contractors rockets hacked up into IEDs, I laugh at the pretenses of said US private contractors, their greed is showing it dirty calzones.
      I don't want to see the same results in a mexico where we have about 1/2 million murdered and disappeared but not so much destruction, and pain and suffering.
      Of course, if "the mxican atomic bombs of mass destruction" are ever found, mexicans will be in very deep shit.

  7. President peña nieto will give him free band-aids when he re-appears.
    Now who can deny the SSPE in every state are.just a bunch of criminals?
    --60 hours are waited when you escape with the boyfriend, not when someone has been abducted in public like this in front of witnesses, Obviously somebody is playing dirtier than dirty, the mayor and the SSPE, and the federales.

  8. This clearly shows how the government and Narcos work together. He criticizes a public figure and goes missing. They are obviously making an effort to shut everyone up in Mexico. Maybe Trump is not so bad after all?

    3. @1:45PM I am sure it got come Mx. tv coverage. I saw a story broadcast on Carmen Aristegui's show and I know that in the morning of the day he was killed he did a TV interview on a morning TV show called “El Almohadazo,”

    4. @1:28PM Yes the story of his murder got fairly good coverage in US TV and radio and I even saw some tv coverage in Great Britain, France, and on Eurovistion.

    5. 2:39 well, appearing with la Aristegui is a national emergency, I remember the french resistance took great pains to not be in the news, during WWII, they just wanted to blow some holes on the "Thurd Reich".
      Real Mexican journalists are valuable, too valuable to be losing them so openly.

  13. In 2016, the authorities discovered 1,500 new illegal pipeline taps in Puebla, roughly 800 more than the year before. None of this would be imaginable without at least a certain amount of complicity between Pemex workers, who have both the expertise and tools to tap the pipelines, Pemex contractors, and the gangs of highly organized criminals. As Carlos Loret de Mata reports, new drone footage has revealed that the gangs have achieved economies of scale and operational efficiences that would be the envy of many of the world’s largest corporations:
    It’s midnight. There are 148 trucks lining up to fill their drums with gasoline. They are neatly parked in the surrounding streets. Everyone knows their place, they respect it, they perform with perfect choreography.
    …It could be the distribution line of Bimbo or Coca-Cola. It looks like a Pemex terminal. But it’s not. It’s a hamlet next to the Puebla-Orizaba highway where the huachicoleros (fuel thieves) drilled a duct and their trucks are just waiting to load the stolen product and take it wherever they’re told to: gas stations, transport companies, big consumers.
    The scene was captured by a drone belonging to the Mexican federal government and is to date the most conclusive proof of the sheer scale and scope of the criminal organizations behind the oil siphoning.
    The sale of stolen gasoline is now the second most profitable source of funds for Mexico’s criminal gangs, behind the trafficking of drugs. The pilfered oil is sold at half the price (or less) of what drivers would have to pay at a Pemex gas station.
    Mexico’s black market for gasoline has been growing for years, but it was given an almighty boost at the beginning of 2017 when the government decided, against all reason, to follow through on a previous pledge to withdraw public subsidies that had helped keep gasoline prices artificially low, just as inflationary pressures were building. The result was a 20% surge in average gasoline prices, which triggered a wave of angry protests throughout the country.
    The depth of public anger is understandable: Mexicans spend more of their annual income on fuel than residents of 60 other countries tracked by Bloomberg, due largely to the country’s low salaries and high gasoline consumption. The Peña Nieto government had repeatedly promised that market liberalization would lead to markedly lower prices at the pump. The exact opposite has occurred, with average prices for gas and diesel soaring by around a third since Peña Nieto’s oil reforms were passed in 2014.
    Now, despite the Bank of Mexico’s frantic efforts to keep inflation contained by raising its policy rate to 6.75% (up from 2.5% early last year), the inflation rate has soared to 5.8% (via Trading Economics):

    Pemex is bleeding oil and funds at an alarming rate. For over 70 years, Pemex served as a vast funding asset, at times providing as much as one-third of total government revenues. But in 2016, it became a national liability, requiring a $4.2 billion bailout from the government.
    Further fuel tax rises may also be needed to keep the country’s increasingly strained fiscal health in check. But the more prices rise at the pump, the higher they will push demand on the black market, which in turn will feed the need for more pilfered fuel. In the meantime, the government has dispatched 2,000 more soldiers to protect Puebla’s pipelines. And just like that, a region that had largely escaped the mindless barbarity of Mexico’s drug wars found itself slap bang on the front lines of a new emerging war, this time over gasoline.

    1. I was reading in an oil publication that Pemex's revenues before provided the country with 40% of their funds.Recently though it's only at 14%,huge difference and that now Pemex is 30% more liability than what it's actually worth due to huge pension inefficiencies among other things.In other words Mexico is in big caca.During the good times lots of that money plundered now during bad times nothing to operate with.

  14. Something tells me the cartels have intentionally or by accident seemed to banded together and have declared war on the press that reports their crimes and atrocities and gets the military after them. Seems Mexico will only get worse as the meth epidemic is getting worse as far as users.

  15. The more things change, the more they stay the same. The situation in Mexico never changes -- why be a martyr when it's obvious your between a rock and a hard-place. Nobody is out their trying to protect these journalists from harm for covering the corruption that exits in MX. To many hands on the take. Even those of a monarchy'a banks. No el jefe is not a king. He'a just the emperor of La republica. Maybe the journalists should just cover tabloid TV and talk about the protagonistas of the novelas. Hey, maybe el guero Castro has a new one out. The mediavisa needs to put out a new interprete de la cancion. Alias el contador

  20. I'm hearing a news out of El Porvenir that a local came across "$200,000,000 buried" near a vacant lot when he tried to pull up an old car hood he was hoping to sell as scrap metal. My source spoke to someone who is a reporter that lives near Fort Hancock, Texas. Has anyone else heard about this?

    1. Yes, I have heard about this! They say there is more buried there. I was talking to my cousin who lives near Houston. He said that he'd heard it while at the community center. But people are scared to say much about it because they don't who the money belongs to. But my cousin said the money was probably buried in the last 3-4 years. I don't know. We'll see.
