The Tlachinollan Mountain Center for Human Rights has reported that on 6 March at 1pm, in the Zócalo of Ayutla de Los Libres, Guerrero, there will be held a public act of recognition of responsibility by which the Mexican State will carry out for Inés Fernández Ortega and her family.  This would be in accordance with the sentence handed down by the Inter-American Court on Human Rights (IACHR) in October 2010.  A Me’phaa indigenous woman, Inés Fernández Ortega, was raped by soldiers of the Mexican Army in 2002 and has been struggling since then for justice in the case.  For those who will not be able to be physically present at the event, there will be live transmission at the Tlachinollan website:
