Acteal releases – brief summary

The Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN) has ordered the immediate release of 9 more people imprisoned for involvement in the Acteal Massacre, and another 16 prisoners are having their cases reviewed. The decision, by 4 votes to 1, was again based on a decision that their guilt had not been legally proven. It “does not imply their innocence” The 16 prisoners whose sentence is to be reviewed include 2 who had confessed their involvement in the killings. 12 years on, and Acteal is further than ever from justice.
