Journalist Lydia Cacho, known for his work reporting against pedophile networks and child exploitation in Mexico, has received a death threat this weekend. Cacho is internationally recognized for his journalistic work, as well as their role as human rights activist.
The threat was received Saturday July 27 when his unit was operated radio, the voice of a man was required to stop meddling in their affairs, "do not mess with us or we will send you home in pieces". Not the first time in 2012 that Lydia is threatened: in June was the target of two , one for email and other on the phone.
For those not familiar with the work of Lydia Cacho, a journalist shot to fame with the publication of the book "The Demons of Eden" (2005), text that denounces political mafia and Mexican businessmen who have an operational network Child. The book earned her retaliation by the governor of Puebla, Mario Marín, who operated his detention as punishment. In 2006, Marin was a recording agreeing with businessman Kamel Nacif, who thanked him by telephone acting against the journalist.
Following various threats and harassment, in 2009 the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights asked the government for granting relief to Lydia Cacho. Now, the Committee to Protect Journalists reiterates that this exordium to ensure the protection of the journalist. Also, the organization Article 19 shall accompany Cacho to perform the relevant complaint with the Attorney General's Office.
The case of Lydia Cacho is another example of the sad records of Mexico as one of the most dangerous countries for journalists. Just a few days ago, the facilities of the newspaper El Norte received their third attack in the last 20 days, without having found a responsible person. According to Article 19, since 2000 are recorded 72 journalists killed, 13 missing journalists and 40 media attacks with guns or explosives. Only in 2012, the number of killings of journalists is six: Regina Martinez, Guillermo Luna, Gabriel Huge, Esteban Rodriguez, Marcos Avila and Victor Baez.
