Mexico: Documentation of the case of José Ramón Aniceto Gómez and Pascual Agustín Cruz – Prisoners of conscience
José Ramón Aniceto Gómez and Pascual Agustín Cruz are indigenous human rights defenders from the Nahuan community of Atla. In 2010, they were detained, tried and sentenced to almost seven years in prison by Puebla state courts. Amnesty International has concluded that the case against the two men was brought solely in reprisal for their legitimate work to extend their community’s access to water and that they were denied the right to a fair trial. The organization is calling for their immediate and unconditional release.
