Edwin Canché Pech, correspondent of Grupo Megamedia at the newspaper Diario de Yucatán, was arbitrarily arrested and tortured for covering an accident that took place on January 2, 2014. The driver, Almícar Couoh, a minor in a state of inebriation, was close to Ermilo Dzul Huchim. 

Both the mayor and the head of the Seyé municipal police force, Jesús Chuc Aldana, participated in physical aggressions against the journalist. 

Numerous residents of Seyé gathered outside the municipal palace, demanding that Canché be set free. This release took place nearly one hour after his arbitrary arrest.

Edwin Canché is beaten at the entrance to his parents' home. His mother, Socorro Pech, intervenes in an attempt to assist him and is also assaulted. 

Edwin Canché recognizes his aggressor as José Guadalupe Collí Tec, a.k.a. “Pedazo”. He files a criminal complaint, however, the State Attorney General of Justice's office fails to provide Canché with a copy of the corresponding act. Months later, he is notified that his denunciation was deemed groundless and his case closed.

Edwin Canché visits the domicile of Amanda Pech in order to cover the story. Ermilo Dzul Huchim 1 is present at the time.

After the journalist photographs the mayor, Dzul orders police officers to arrest him. Minutes later, a municipal patrol car arrives at the scene. An officer beats Edwin Canché while indicating to him that he cannot stay there and that he has to accompany him. Edwin refuses and is forced into the patrol car. When he requests the motive for his arrest, the police officers respond that he is not being placed under arrest, yet insist that he cannot abandon the vehicle.

Bartolomé Canché heads for the municipal palace, accompanied by a group of approximately 30 people, in order to demand the release of Edwin Canché. 

Ermilo Dzul requests back-up from the state Secretariat of Public Safety, arguing that the crowd intends to overrun the palace.

The mayor and five police officers, including Juan Manuel Chuc, beat Canché and recriminate him for his journalistic endeavors. Stripping him of his belongings, they erase the photographs and videos the journalist had taken of the accident and the attack.

Edwin Artemio de la Cruz Canché Pech appears before the FEADLE to give a statement. In said statement, he expresses his desire to join the Mechanism for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Journalists1, given his own assessment that he and his relatives found themselves in a latent risk situation.


1 The Mechanism for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Journalists has as its mission to protect the safety of human rights defenders and journalists through three types of measures: prevention, protection and urgent protection, depending on the level of risk experienced by those who carry out journalistic endeavors or those who defend or promote human rights, with the objective of guaranteeing their lives, physical integrity, liberty, and personal safety.

In the case of Mayor Ermilo Dzul Huchim, it is decided that no judicial warrant be issued given that first, a declaration of jurisdiction must be issued in order to try him in penal court because —in his opinion— as mayor, he possesses constitutional immunity.

Judicial arrest warrants are served against the municipal police officers who committed the assault. They provide opening statements and are released that same day, at approximately 11:45 PM, having paid their bail. The Judge presiding over this case determines that the charges of abuse of authority and personal injury are not to be deemed serious. He therefore orders that the suspects be released on bail, to be set in the amount of  $7,400.00 to $8,333.00 pesos for each of the defendants.

Likewise, a decree is issued determining that they will stand trial as probable perpetrators of the crime of personal injury.

Given the determination of probable responsibility against the aforementioned police officers of Seyé for the crimes of abuse of authority and personal injury, a motion is filed to the effect that said crimes be reclassified as torture, given the gravity of the event that actually took place against Edwin Canché Pech.

This indirect human rights trial, registered under case number 52/2014, is substantiated before the Unitary Tribunal of the 31st Circuit Court, the same that awarded constitutional protection on December 12, 2014. However, the same Federal Court places in doubt the status of Edwin Canché Pech as a journalist, requesting that he accredit his profession with documentation such as an ID or professional contract. 

Given the situation, a motion to review is filed to dispute the decision, given that it goes against international standards; accreditation should not be required of the journalist, because the career of journalism is carried out to exercise the right to freedom of speech and information; obligatory unionization being prohibited as well; otherwise, it would constitute an illegitimate restriction disproportionate to the practice of said rights.

The Meeting of the Governing Council of the Mechanism of Protection awards protective measures to Edwin Canché Pech. These turn out to be insufficient, given that they do not translate into effective protection for the journalist. In this regard, a request for review is presented before the National Executive Committee of the Mechanism requesting that they reevaluate and issue new measures. However, on November 27, 2014, the Government Council reinstates the protective measures that were granted previously.

Edwin Canché

Edwin Canché Pech, correspondent of Grupo Megamedia en the newspaper Diario de Yucatán, was arbitrarily arrested and tortured for covering an accident that took place on January 2, 2014. The driver, Almícar Couoh, a minor in a state of inebriation, was close to Ermilo Dzul Huchim. 

Both the mayor and the head of the Seyé municipal police force, Jesús Chuc Aldana, participated in physical aggressions against the journalist. 

Numerous residents of Seyé gathered outside the municipal palace, demanding that Canché be set free. This release took place nearly one hour after his arbitrary arrest.
