by KBOO FM (repost)

A Mexican judge has once again called for the release of human rights activist Juan Manuel Martinez Moreno. Moreno was charged with the murder of Indymedia journalist Brad Will in 2006, despite the fact that there was no evidence against him. On Friday, a Mexican judge recognized this lack of evidence, and ordered Moreno’s release within fifteen days.

Supporters of Juan Manuel Martinez Moreno say that he was framed for the murder because he is an activist who has pointed out corruption in the Mexican government. Several off-duty Mexican police who were caught on film shooting at Brad Will have not been charged with any crime. This past October, another judge ordered Moreno to be released due to lack of evidence, but the Mexican Attorney General’s office appealed the order. Moreno has been in jail for over a year, despite the fact that over one hundred eyewitnesses say that he was not present at the scene of Brad Will’s murder.

This is an interview with Kathy Will, Brad Will’s mother, about Juan Manuel's case.

De nuevo, una juez federal de México ordenó libertad para el activista en defensa de los derechos humanos Juan Manuel Martínez Moreno, acusado del asesinato del periodista de Indymedia Brad Will en 2006 a pesar de la falta de pruebas contra él. El viernes pasado, la juez reconoció la falta de pruebas y ordenó poner en libertad a Martínez Moreno en los próximos quince días.

Los partidarios de Juan Manuel Martínez Moreno dicen que él fue incriminado del asesinato por ser activista que ha señalado la corrupción rampante en el gobierno de México. Varios policías mexicanos fuera de servicio, grabados en video mientras disparaban a Brad Will no han sido acusados de ningún crimen. El octubre pasado, otro juez ordenó libertad para Martínez Moreno debido a la falta de pruebas, pero la procuraduría apeló el orden. Martínez Moreno ha estado en la cárcel durante más de un año a pesar de las declaraciones de cien testigos oculares que afirman que él no estuvo presente en la escena del asesinato de Brad Will.
