MEXICO CITY (APR) .- Elements of the Attorney General's Office (PGR) and the Secretaries of the Navy (Semar) and National Defense (Sedena) rescue 35 men and four female migrants of Cuban nationality in Cancún, Quintana Roo who were allegedly deprived of their liberty and awaiting a probable payment for their release.
Four Cuban men and one Mexican man were arrested as suspected kidnappers.
In a statement, the security cabinet of the government of the Republic reported that the rescue took place last night, derived from an anonymous report that warned of an irregular situation in a building on 7th Street.
Upon arrival at the site they heard cries for help, so they asked permission from the owner of the place to come in. Once inside, the victims pointed to four Cuban men, who are probably responsible for their deprivation of liberty. Therefore, the subjects were arrested, identified as Irandy "M", Yosnarvi "M", Grendy "R" and Losif "L".
When the elements helped the victims to go to different vehicles to take them to the place where they would receive medical help, a Mexican man, identified as Joaquín "D", was designated by about 30 victims as the one who brought them food. For that reason, he was also arrested.
Instead, the authorities also provided cash, as well as telecommunication equipment and vehicles.
The detainees were put at the disposal of the agent of the Public Prosecution Service of the Federation together with the insured person to determine their legal status.
The authorities clarified that the Deputy Prosecutor General for Organized Crime Investigation (SEIDO) is attractive in the case.
