According to The Human Rights Center Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas, A.C. (Frayba), two of their members were kidnapped while traveling to the city of Palenque, Chiapas, and until now their whereabouts are unknown.

On April 12, 2021, at approximately 7:00 a.m., human rights defenders Lázaro Sánchez Gutiérrez and Victórico Gálvez Pérez left the Frayba offices in a white Hillux van bound for the municipality of Palenque, Chiapas, with the aim of holding a work meeting with members of the organization Peoples Autonomous for the Defense of Customs and Uses (PADUC) and relatives of prisoners.

At around 9:00 p.m. the same day, Frayba received information that the human rights defender Lázaro Sánchez Gutiérrez had made a call to his family from an unknown number indicating that he and his colleague Victorico Gálvez that they were well, that they were in the town of San Felipe, near Kuxulja, municipality of Ocosingo and that one of his family members should bring a certain amount of money in a private vehicle at 8:00 am today, April 13.

It is important to highlight that from the outset the state and federal authorities have knowledge of the facts but up until now they have not given clear information about the situation.

Faced with these unfortunate events, Frayba expresses its concerns and strongly condemns these acts of intimidation, aggression and kidnapping of Lázaro Sánchez Gutiérrez and Victórico Gálvez Pérez.

We would also mention that these acts take place in an environment of criminalization of human rights defenders in Mexico and signs of the Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Center. We urgently call on the Mexican State to carry out an exhaustive and impartial investigation of the arbitrary deprivation of liberty of Lázaro Sánchez and Victórico Gálvez, to guarantee the life, liberty, security and integrity of our comrades.

We call on national and international solidarity to sign this urgent action available on the page www.frayba.org.mx and write to the Mexican authorities so that they commit themselves to implementing security measures for the exercise of the right to defend human rights.

Privación arbitraria de la libertad a integrantes del Frayba

Con profunda preocupación hemos recibido información del Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas, en donde dos de sus integrantes, los defensores de derechos humanos Lázaro Sánchez Gutiérrez y Victórico Gálvez Pérez fueron secuestrados por un grupo de personas mientras se trasladaban rumbo a la Ciudad de Palenque, Chiapas, para llevar acabo reuniones de trabajo con procesos sociales de defensa y familiares de presos. Los hechos abrían ocurrido el día de ayer 12 de abril de 2021, aproximadamente al medio día y hasta el momento se desconoce el paradero de los defensores de derechos humanos.
Es importante resaltar que desde el primer momento las autoridades estatales y federales tienen conocimiento de los hechos, quienes hasta el momento no han dado una información clara sobre tal situación.
Por tal razón, condenamos enérgicamente estos hechos y le solicitamos implementar todas las medidas urgentes y necesarias para garantizar la vida, libertad, seguridad e integridad personal de los defensores de derechos humanos Lázaro Sánchez Gutiérrez y Victórico Gálvez Pérez, lo cual ocurre en un ambiente de criminalización a defensores de derechos humanos en México y señalamientos hacia el Centro de Derechos Humanos Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas.
