Our Group’s Letters of Concern Helped Release Rodolfo Montiel and Teodoro Cabera of Mexico
On May 2, 1999 Rodolfo Montiel and Teodoro Cabera were arrested by members of the Mexican Army’s 40th Infantry Battalion in Pizotla, Guerrero.
They were illegally held in military custody for five days, during which time they were tortured and forced to sign blank pieces of paper later submitted at their trials as confessions to drug and weapons crimes.
In July 2000, Mexico’s own National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) concluded that Montiel and Cabrera had been illegally detained and tortured by soldiers
The Global Importune letter signing group began sending letters of concern on behalf of Rodolfo Montiel and Teodoro Cabera to officials in the government Mexico sometime around January 1999.
They were RELEASED on November 8, 2001.
