Chilon Municipality @ Chiapas
On January 27th, two men were found executed and two vehicles burned in the municipality of Chilon. Several newspapers mentioned that it was the result of a confrontation between alleged self-defense groups and an organized crime gang. They also reported that one of the victims could be related to the gang “Pesthoneros, a group that is dedicated to kidnapping, murder among other criminal acts.”
The events occurred at the conclusion of the tour of the pre-candidate of the PRI to the governor, Roberto Albores Gleason.
It should be remembered that in the municipality of Chilon there is a post-electoral conflict since 2015, which has left at least 12 dead, according to Universal.
