The hearing of Juan Francisco “N” alias 'El Quillo' , the alleged perpetrator of the murder of journalist Javier Valdez , was postponed for the sixth time, this time due to internet connection problems. [because of Covid hearing are virtual]

According to the organization Propuesta Cívica AC, the defendant's defense argued poor connectivity, so Judge Edgar Rafael Juárez ordered the hearing to be postponed, which must be held within a period of no more than 15 days.

The judge asserted that the deferrals that have occurred so far are due to the pursuit of having equal circumstances so that due process is guaranteed.

In addition, it was requested that 'El Quillo' be transferred from the Guasave Prison to the Sinaloa Justice Center to avoid a new technical inconvenience and so that the intermediate hearing can be conducted without obstacles.

The organization that defends human rights and freedom of expression indicated that at the request of the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) and the defense of the accused, the possibility of carrying out an abbreviated procedure on the case was rejected.

The RíoDoce journalist was murdered on May 15, 2017. Meanwhile, “El Quillo” was arrested on June 6, 2018 and was linked to the investigation six days later, accused of his alleged participation in the murder.
