On 22 February was published another denunciation by Alberto Patishtan Gómez, member of La Voz del Amate, who is being held in the Cefereso no. 8 in Guasave, Sinaloa, having been transferred there from Chiapas on 20 October 2011.

In his communiqué he declares, “Nearly 2 years after Juan Sabines Guerrero, governor of Chiapas, publicly declared my innocence and committed to release me, this promise is nothing more than words, and no actions have been taken.  This occurred during his visit when I was being held in the Vida Mejor Hospital due to my condition of glaucoma.  Now with this declaration and due to my impairment of vision I was victimized by being transferred from Chiapas to Guasave Sinaloa.”  Regarding this disease, he notes in the same document: “the authorities have ignored my condition and the necessary treatment, and for this reason the situation is critical.  For any fatal situation that would result in my loss of eyesight I feel I would hold the federal authorities responsible.”
