Mexican Journalists Have Been Killed in the Last Week
According to government sources, three journalists also have been assassinated in Mexico in the last week.
A prosecutor’s office in the Mexican state of such Veracruz says two journalists were assassinated on Monday and has begun an investigation.
Two journalists were killed in the municipality of Cosoleacaque, Mexico, on Monday, and the Veracruz prosecutor’s office said on Twitter that they were currently pursuing all lines of internal investigation, including the victims’ journalistic activities, to find out the motive for the killings, which took place in Cosoleacaque.
Cuitláhuac Garca, the governor of Veracruz, tweeted, “We will discover the culprits of this atrocity, there will be justice and there will be no impunity as we have stated and done in previous situations.”
The two journalists “were shot in the parking lot of a convenience store in Cosoleacaque,” according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which demanded an investigation be launched right once.
Prosecutors say another journalist was shot and murdered in Sinaloa, the state capital, on Thursday.
Sinaloa’s prosecutor Sara Quionez tweeted that the corpse recovered on the El Ranchito highway was in fact that of journalist Luis Enrique Ramrez Ramós.
‘Our profound sympathies to his family and our commitment to work on clarifying this reality’, the post continues.
Fuentes Fidedignas, a news site founded by Ramirez, was a columnist and a media outlet. According to the press, he was assassinated on Thursday afternoon and his corpse was found nearby his house after being abducted.
It isn’t known whether Ramirez’s murder was connected to his professional work.
