Mexican Judge Orders Indians Released from Prison After 10 Years

MEXICO CITY – Two Mixtec Indians have been ordered released from prison after serving 10 years by a Mexican judge, who ruled that the father and son were incapable of “understanding the legal ramifications of their conduct.”

Sebastian and Marcial Zuņiga were convicted and ordered to serve 17 years in prison following a trial that was full of irregularities.

Leobardo Zuņiga was also charged and convicted in the same case, but he was released a few months ago after losing his eyesight due to diabetes.

The three men were charged in connection with the Aug. 12, 2001, shooting death of a child in Ayutla de los Libres, a city in the southern state of Guerrero.

No one saw who fired the shots, but authorities charged the three Indians.

The judge did not find that the Zuņigas were not guilty, ruling only that the three Indians should be released for cultural reasons. EFE
