Mexico: Further information on Fear for Safety / ill-treatment for Héctor Pérez Córdova and other inmates of Topo Chico prison
Hectór Pérez Córdova is reportedly no longer in solitary confinement and has been allowed to receive the medicine he needs to control the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. The Nuevo León state authorities deny all allegations of ill-treatment in their prisons. Despite this Amnesty International continues to receive reports of ill-treatment and threats against prisoners at two of the state’s prisons, Topo Chico and Apodaca, often as a reprisal against those who have made complaints about prison conditions. This remains a high priority for Amnesty International.
