AMERICA/MEXICO - "While murders continue, the government reacts slowly," the voice of the church
Coahuila (Agenzia Fides) - "While disappearances and deaths linked to drug trafficking continue, the main characteristics of the strategy of the federal government advance slowly against organized crime and above all what is striking is the lack of clarity of the actions to be taken", said Mgr. Raul Vera Lopez, Bishop of Saltillo, during a press conference after the closing Mass of the pilgrimage to the Basilica of Guadalupe.
Mgr. Vera Lopez also reflected on the incidents of violence recorded before the elections held last week in 14 States, with the killing of some candidates.
"This violence smells of organized crime, and political parties and the PGR (Attorney General's Office) must stop it, otherwise drug dealers will choose who they want to put in public offices", concluded the Bishop. (CE) (Agenzia Fides 11/07/2013)
