The five men named Miguel Angel Gómez , Mariano Cruz Hernández , Manuel Cruz Méndez ,Antonio Gómez Luna, and Andrés Gómez Luna were detained by armed civilians on 16 and 17 January, who handed them over to the Chiapas State Judicial Police (Policia Judicial del Estado, PJE). They have reportedly been tortured. When human rights defender Francisco Cruz Pérez went to see them in custody, armed civilians allegedly threatened him. Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of all six men.
