Lawyers for Sergeant José “N” are preparing to file for an amparo (a Mexican legal process that protects the citizen and their basic human rights) against a state tribunal’s ruling that ties their client to the case of an extrajudicial execution that took place in Palmarito, Puebla.

A video posted on social media shows a member of the military, who is presumed to be Sergeant José “N,” shooting his weapon and killing a surrendered member of the fuel thieving gang known as the Huachicoleros.

A judge from the Center of Federal Penal Justice had previously released José “N,” claiming that forensic evidence and military testimony wasn’t enough, but the decision was overturned by Judge Esteban Santos Velázquez of the Second Unitarian Tribunal who said that the evidence was indeed sufficient.

Sergeant José “N”‘s lawyer Alejandro Robledo Carretero said that his client will remain behind bars in a military facility where he faces desertion charges for which he will be prosecuted simultaneously.
