Mexican Reporter Who Covers Mexico City Gangs Gets Death Threat

MEXICO CITY – Journalist Hector de Mauleon, who has reported on the criminal organizations operating in Mexico City, has received a death threat in a video posted on Twitter.

The video appeared on Wednesday and shows an individual firing several shots with a handgun at a photograph of the reporter.

A message saying, “Mr. Hector, the sentence is still to be carried out, death has come for you,” accompanies the images.

De Mauelon works for the ADN 40 channel, whose programming is produced by media giant TV Azteca.

“At ADN 40, we condemn this action and all acts of violence. Our colleague has dedicated a good part of his efforts to denouncing the actions of organized crime in Mexico City. Let’s not forget that De Mauleon was the one who revealed the Tlahuac cartel’s criminal network, as well as the takeover of the Roma and Condesa districts by drug dealers,” ADN 40 said in a statement.

The daily El Universal, where De Mauleon is a columnist, reported on its website that the Attorney General’s Office is investigating the death threat.

Mexico, where at least nine reporters have been murdered so far this year, is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists.
