When Mexican leftist presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador said he would give amnesty to criminals, many people thought it was just a campaign strategy. But the reality is that he’s already begun not only to give them amnesty, but to make them part of his den, such is the case of Nestora Salgado, who will be running for senator representing MORENA (Obrador’s political party), in this year’s election.
Nestora was the coordinator of the community police in the town of Olinala, Guerrero, and was accused of having participated in at least 48 kidnappings, including those of four teenagers of 11, 12, 13 and 17 years of age, and was imprisoned for these crimes in the high security detention facility of Tepic, Nayarit.
Salgado was detained on August 2013 for kidnapping and organized crime, and was released on March 2016, allegedly for lack of evidence (after almost three years in jail). And now, Nestora Salgado is looking to become one of Guerrero’s representatives in the upper house.
According to www.razon.com.mx, in one of the recordings filed in the trial against Nestora Salgado, her voice can be heard threatening the father of a kidnapped girl:
“This is Comandante Nestora Salgado speaking, I´m calling to tell you that in return for your daughter’s freedom you have to give me the amount of five thousand pesos. So, as soon as you hand me the money, you get your daughter María back”.
María’s father, a humble farmer of Olinala, did not have the $5,000 pesos to pay the ransom for his daughter, who was abducted at borad daylight by the then community police commander Nestora Salgado and her men.
Salgado retained Maria because her family refused to “cooperate” with money to buy weapons for the community police. During her retention (according to her own testimony), Maria was awakened every day at 5 in the morning with a bucket of cold water, and taken out to work on the field all day.
María declared that she was kept locked up in a construction site adapted as a prison, which they called “Paradise”, in the municipality of Ayutla de los Libres, Guerrero.
According to www.razon.com.mx, all these evidences are registered in file number / 136/3013 and tab / Frza / 018/2013 in the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Guerrero, including the recordings.
