Jesús Casillas Romero, PRI senator from Jalisco, said that the kidnapping of six people in Puerto Vallarta was an “isolated incident” and that the city is safe for domestic and foreign tourism.

He said that statistically crime has not increased, nor can links between the police and organized crime groups be proven.

Casillas Romero said Puerto Vallarta, “Is a completely safe destination, and this was an isolated case. Puerto Vallarta is a location that people can continue to visit, and the city is waiting with open arms for Mexican and international tourists.”

He continued, “We have been there in the past few days and we saw that this was an issue of organized crime. It’s not the general tendency, or everyday insecurity, in other words. Tourists are not at risk for their physical safety or to be robbed.”

He said that the kidnapping investigation is in the hands of the federal government. One of the six people kidnapped was Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, son of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera.
