Reporter: Ruben Mosso
The assistant Attorney General Gilberto Higuera announced that the have exposed to the State Prosecutor the elements that they have found, among them, violation of due process, said the State leader of the party.

The President of the Citizens Movement in Michoacan, Daniel Moncada, said that the Prosecutor General of the Republic has been informed of the judicial elements in order to proceed with the liberation of the founder of the Autodefensas of Tepalcatepec, Jose Manuel Mireles Valverde.

Moncado said that Higuera Bernal will wait until Monday to expose the judicial motions to the Prosecutor Arely Gomez, regarding what they have found to liberate Mireles, among them, violations of due process.

Interviewed at the end of the meeting that I had with the Assisstant Attorney General of regional control, about Prison procedures and amperes of the PGR, Gilberto Higuera Bernal, Moncado signalled that the Federal functionary promised to revise today the state of health of Dr Mireles, who has received no medical attention for 30 days in prison in Hermosillo, Sonora, where he is imprisoned.

The President of the Citizens Movement of Michoacan said, " I underline that despite the good news, they are not to be trusted, and that in the case he is not released, they will determine other measures.

For her part, Virginia Mireles, sister of the ex autodefensa and candidate for Federal Deputy. She said she felt a great relief at the words spoken by Higuera Bernal, who was identified as the functionary that has revised the records of her brother.

The resolution  of the PGR this Monday does not immediately implicate the liberation of Dr Mireles, but the beginning of the process to achieve his liberation, for the members of the Citizens Movement have now petitioned to have Dr Mireles moved to a lower security prison while his liberation process proceeds.

The health of Dr Mireles is in danger

Virginia Mireles assure that the health of her brother is still in danger and he cannot feel his extremities, because he has stopped receiving any medical attention in the Federal Prison in Sonora, where he has been imprisoned for the last 10 months.

During his call to the PGR, the candidate for deputy said that they will carry a case of International instances of maltreatment that her brother has suffered.

Virginia mentioned that she was informed by the Lawyer of Dr Mireles, that in the last 30 days he has lacked medical attention because the diabetes has complications, and that he has started to lose the use of one of his feet, and he has an ulcer. The last thing he received was water and soap.

For his part, Daniel Moncada, President of the Citizens Movement in Michoacan, said that they will petition the intervention of Amnesty International.

He said that they will start other courses of actions in case the PGR do not desist in the imprisonment of Dr Mireles, and that he has been treated like the worst of criminals, while the true criminals remain free in Michoacan.

At the meeting he could not be assisted by the leader and founder of the autodefensas in Michoacan, Hipplito Mora, because he was participating in the due diligence of the death of his son.

  1. I said it before and I'll say it again; he will be free when he's dead. The State is waiting so that he dies from natural causes or that his body and mind are so ate up with debilitating disease that he is no longer a threat. The reported lack of medical attention is the catalyst to speed up this process because even in the Mexican government's idea of fairness, the doc has been there too long, but be damned, he just won't die.

  2. He is a Threat to the PRI. They are afraid of him, he the power of the people

  3. This a good news , inocent man dr mireles for 10. In prision with diabetes no resived medical treatment,,,,,,,, is inhumane. Shame on the mexican goverment. Is comun in mexico put inocent people in. Jail planting false evidence. God bless dr mireles for their integrity. Dignity ,,and justice this man is one example for the dirty politics who will pay the price on the nexy elections and at the end of their lives in hell.

  4. I don't think moving him to a lower prison would be safe. Lower prison = cheaper security which someone would put a hit on him.

  5. PGR: has the elements, the petitions, the proof, the protests, etc.... to let Mireles free but yet NADA. If they do release him in the future can he sue for false imprisonment?

    1. Haha, sure. Then they will imprison him for theft of a candy bar

  6. The mexican attorney generals have all the elements necessary to play us like fools revealing time after time of the dramatic improvements on the case of Dr Mireles, which they keep "studying" and "studiying" like they never studied in school...

  7. This is a terrible injustice this Man is going through
    God bless Dr.Mireles

  8. All the post are Anonymous which gives the cartel confirmation of the fear people have. All I can say is Dr. Mireles is a REAL HERO that despite everything he was willing to fight back! This type of person is rare in present times. Makes me want to yell at the top of my lungs "Remember the Alamo!" Viva Dr. Mireles!
