MERIDA — The National Institute of Migration (INM) in Yucatan categorically rejected that they “humiliated or mistreated” Playboy magazine models during a party at the Chichi Suarez Hacienda in Merida June 30 because they had no immigration papers.
“Only the protocols that are used by law in those cases were followed,” the agency said in an interview with El Universal newspaper.
The models narrated their version in the August issue of the magazine and claimed that they were humiliated in the way they were detained and deprived of their liberty.
Models Elif Celik (Turkey), Lauryn Elaine (USA) and Marie Brethenoux (France) asserted that the INM acted incorrectly, as they only attended that party and did not collect or receive any remuneration.
Before the show, Migration authorities detained several of the models on the grounds that they had no immigration papers and had come to work at that site. The Playmates asserted: “We did not break the law, and much less in a country like Mexico that we admire.”
On the other hand, the INM delegate in Yucatan, Oswaldo Ortiz Matú, said that the agency issued a bulletin at the time, where it was clearly explained that “we follow the protocols by law that marks the migration aspect” and rejected that the models were abused or humiliated.
“It is not like that, we acted in accordance with the law and used the protocols that apply to those cases for migrants,” he said in an interview with EL UNIVERSAL.
“We did nothing wrong, we were humiliated and questioned and it was insulting because it was in the eyes of everyone,” the ‘bunnies’ said.
They claimed they were detained for hours in an uncomfortable place and that “and they gave us little food and water” and that even to go to the bathroom they had mishaps.
The magazine’s directors in Mexico said during the arrest of the models, their dissatisfaction with how the agents of Migration acted and the hours (almost 36 hours) during which these models were stopped and detained in the migratory facilities.
