The state committee of the People’s Revolutionary Democratic Party, PDPR, Military Command of the Zone of the People’s Revolutionary Army, EPR, made it known that:

These comrades and militants are being brutally tortured in the Attorney General’s offices by the army, the AFI, and North American advisors to the army and the police.”
The Limeddh hereby manifests its concern for the physical and psychological well-being of the people arrested and requests their live presentation and, furthermore, issues a reminder that if they have committed any illegal act, they should be sanctioned according to the law.
In view of these facts, the Limeddh requests :
i. That all necessary measures be taken to assure the live presentation of Raymundo Rivera Bravo, Edmundo Reyes Amaya, and the other person who was with them.
ii. That the physical and psychological integrity and the legal safety of the three people arrested be guaranteed.
iii. That an official report detailing the actions taken by the authorities be issued.
iv. That the actions taken comply with the general provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the international human rights pacts and conventions ratified by Mexico.
