Hermosillo, – Sonora is one of the 10 states of Mexico that means greater risks for journalists and examples are the 26 complaints against journalists in the state police forces. The disappearance and death of Alfredo Jiménez Mota and Marco Antonio Avila, respectively in addition to the recent attack on the columnist Gerardo Ponce de Leon.

The Ombudsman of Sonora, Raul Ramirez Arturo Ramirez, rejected statements made by the Secretary of Public Security in the state, Ernesto Munro Palacio, who said the General Director of the Program of Attacks against Journalists and Civil Defenders of Human Rights CNDH. The declaration and the statistics prove that Sonora is one of the 10 states most dangerous for journalists.

“The five states which are risky for journalists are Mexico City, Veracruz, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Chihuahua and unfortunately now Sonora. But it has not been determined where she lies,” he said during his recent visit to the state said Javier Sepulveda Amed of the NHRC.

This controversy is compounded by the president of the State Commission for Human Rights, Raul Ramirez, saying “there is a study of the National Commission on the most dangerous states, but we also have recorded the death of Marco Antonio Avila, and the disappearance of Alfredo Jiménez Mota, and the 26 complaints we have received from colleagues for obstruction of journalistic work, and the attack on the columnist Gerardo Ponce, which is why the statistics contained in Sonora.”

“I respect the statement of the Secretary of Security, but instead of seeing him as the source of the statistics it would be better to join forces to no longer continue to allow the attacks and insults on the journalistic profession,” stressed the Ombudsman.

El Chapo is accused of playing in Politics in Mexico!

The pamphlets were one-page computer-printed and had not been signed, but rallied for the murder of an individual

A drug cartel, in an unusual fashion launched thousands of leaflets over the city of Culiacan from a plane to accuse the governor of Sinaloa of receiving orders from the chief drug trafficker Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, said on Wednesday.

Several groups of drug traffickers in Mexico have spread videos on YouTube and banners hanging from bridges to publicize their positions, while recently killing many people in ways to intimidate opponents or disseminate threatening messages.

However, if confirmed, the incident on Tuesday in Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa in northwestern Mexico, would be the first in recent history that drug traffickers throw leaflets from an airplane.

It could also represent an intensification of the war as the national and military scale to end the Sinaloa cartel and the group of Los Zetas, which characterizes extreme violence.

“I think those leaflets were thrown from a plane very early, surely they have information that by land it is difficult to do,” said the governor of Sinaloa, Mario López Valdez, who goes by the nickname “Malova”.

Although occasionally the drug cartels have distributed leaflets in some localities a few crude facts of photocopying texts, Raul Benitez, a security expert at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, said it was the first time he was aware that numerous pamphlets had been distributed, but much less than had been launched from the air.

“I do not remember that one poster has used a plane for that, but they have also distributed papers and making advertising,” said Benitez.

The suspect, who had been identified as a member of the Beltran Leyva cartel, was killed by another inmate in the last three days.

One of the flyers stated that the governor, by orders of El Chapo Guzman asked the Attorney General’s Office to send Javier Araujo Avilez to state prison to be tortured and killed.

In the text, , he urged people not to kill the author or authors attached that they cannot defend themselves, as does El Chapo.

The group said if it had not been for the help of Malova, Chapo would have stayed with his people.

The governor denied having ties with El Chapo Guzman. “I tell you he’s a character who does not even know who has communication with him and I have never received an order (the same),” Lopez said Valdez.

The wording of the text suggests that perhaps the Zetas wrote these leaflets, and have launched retaliatory attacks on strongholds of the Sinaloa cartel gunmen after the entry of this organization and the allies of the same territories of the Zetas in the states of Veracruz and Tamaulipas, the Gulf of Mexico.
