Political Prisoner Alejandro Diaz Santiz, Writes From the Federal Center of Villas de Comatitlán, Chiapas

To the public opinion

To the national and international means of communication

To the media

To the Sixth

To the nongovernmental defenders of human rights

To the national indigenous congress of the EZLN

Unjustly incarcerated indigenous prisoner Tsótsil Alejandro Diaz Sántiz in solidarity with the voice of Amate, members of the Sixth declaration of the Lacandona jungle of the EZLN. Held in center number 15 Villa Comaltitlán Chiapas.

In the jails of our country the prisoners in different penitentiaries suffer bad treatment on part of the authorities. Especially in this federal center Number 15, Villa Comaltitlán Chiapas, where approximately 2500 people live under constant threat because the authorities of the center have abused their powers. Some guards and custodians are embittered without knowing what the problem is and they come to get even with us by threatening us verbally and physically. Many of my compañeros have been beaten without reason. A clear example was on April 29th, an official treated a prisoner in module E.6 very poorly. The prisoner is about 60 years of age. He received physical mistreatment and was even left physically naked for the simple act of having disposable cups in his cell. This official constantly attacks us with obscene words. It is because of this I am making this public denouncement, and asking the president of the republic to take this letter and put an end to the abuses that we are suffering from guards. Again I ask the President Enrique Peña Nieto to demand the governor of Veracruz for my freedom because I have spent 17 years in prison paying for an undue conviction. At the same time I demand to the governor Manuel Velasco Cuello that he fulfills his commitment to have my case seen before the authorities of Veracruz. Until now there has been no response and this July 4th, 2016, will mark 3 years.

Lastly, I invite all of the national and international organizations to join this cause that we are all suffering in prison.

Together we can win true justice.

Fraternally,

Alejandro Diaz Santiz solidarity in solidarity with the voice of Amate
