BACKGROUND

On August 13, 2001, in Mexico City the Cerezo Contreras Brothers—Alejandro, Hector, and Antonio—students at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), were arrested and tortured along with the carpenter Sergio Galicia Máx and the indigenous man Pablo Alvarado Flores, accused of terrorism by the Attorney General of Mexico after several firecrackers were set off in banks. They are now prisoners in the maximum security prison Almoloya de Juárez. The National Human Rights Commission opened the complaint file 2001 /21 24-1 and on September 28, in accordance with file 017796, concluded that “This National Commission presumes the existence of human rights violations consisting of cruel treatment, especially after observing the wound sustained by Héctor Cerezo Contreras...” The attorney Digna Ochoa y Placido, who was handling the defense in this case, was assassinated on October 19, 2001.

Under these circumstances, and considering the background of threats and persecution of the members of the Comité Cerezo (see Urgent Action, by Amnesty International: AMR 41/003/2002/s - 11 de enero de 2002) and recalling that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights issued a document asking that the Mexican Government take precautionary measures. And in view of the legal situation of the case of the Cerezo Contreras brothers—Antonio, Héctor, and Alejandro—and the indigenous man Pablo Alvarado Flores, recalling that Alejandro Cerezo was released after being exonerated on March 3, 2004, and that Pablo Alvarado was released on August 13, 2006, all having been exonerated of various offenses, including terrorism, and having had their sentence reduced, yet persisting the offenses of organized crime and possession of arms, which were planted.

Héctor and Antonio Cerezo are still prisoners at the Federal Social Rehabilitation Center #1, maximum security prison “Altiplano”, formerly “La Palma”, sentenced to 7 and ½ years in prison.
