On 13 January, the Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez Center for Human Rights (Prodh) affirmed its support for the Collective against Torture and Impunity (CCTI), which faces criminalization due to its work for human rights. This criminalization was revealed on 7 January on the electronic news page Milenio.com, which published an article referring to State intelligence reports from the federal and Guerrero state governments. This article observes that “the social groups which in 2013 were very active in the state (such as the teachers’ movements and the communal police) had been assessed and infiltrated by guerrilla movements or members of insurgent groups that work in the region.”
In light of this, the CCTI clarified to Milenio that it has no relationship or tie with any guerrilla groups, whether state or national, and it stressed that the published article threatens the physical and psychological integrity of Dr. Raymundo a human-rights coordinator for CCTI in Guerrero; Bertoldo Martínez Cruz, member of the Front of Organizations of Guerrero State (FODEG); Minervino Morán Hernández, memember of the State Coordination of Education Workers in Guerrero (CETEG); Bernardino García Francisco, survivor of the El Charco massacre; Manuel Olivares Hernández, from the Guerrerense Network of Civil Human Rights Organizations; Vidulfo Rosales Sierra, a lawyer in defense of human rights from the Tlachinollan Mountain Center for Human Rights; and Javier Monroy, from the Workshop for Communal Development (Tadeco).
