CHILPANCINGO, Gro.- The Catholic priest Alejandro Solalinde publicly denounced the disappearance of the indigenous activist and member of the Council of Community Authorities of the municipality of Ayutla de los Libres, Obtilia Eugenio Manuel -who was granted precautionary measures- and a member of the Me 'Phaa Indigenous People's Organization (OPIM).
Both activists had previously received threats, denounced the Catholic priest and defender of migrants.
Since 2005, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) has ordered the Mexican State to guarantee the safety of Obtilia Eugenio in the face of systemic threats due to her work in defense of human rights and the legal actions she undertook against the Army in the case of the sexual violation against Valentina Rosendo Cantú and Inés Fernández Ortega, a crime registered in February and March 2002, in the municipalities of Ayutla de los Libres and Acatepec.
Eugenio Manuel was accompanied by Hilario Cornelio Castro and in the town of Tierra Colorada, municipal seat of Juan R. Escudero, boarded a collective taxi to go to the capital of the state near 07:00 hours yesterday.
