Gustavo Rentería Goodbye Moisés As it always happens in cases like this, the politicians washed their hands of the problem

“On my trip to Mexico I could see the faith of people so oppressed, despised and violated in their dignity,” said Pope Francis Sunday during a speech he gave from the window of the Apostolic Palace.

While he said those words, the Dagdug family in Villahermosa, Tabasco, cried — and still does — because of the cowardly murder of Moisés: that brave father, critic and persona non grata to the local authorities.

As I read those two pages detailing what the pope had said, the media in Tabasco related how the lifeless body of the entrepreneur and broadcaster was found inside his house, and that the gunmen responsible for his killing fled in a Ford Lobo owned by the communicator who said things as they were.

As it always happens in cases like this, the politicians washed their hands of the problem and claim that it was a robbery, just as they did with the crime committed against former Excélsior newspaper director José Manuel Nava, in Mexico City.

While the Argentinian pope was cheered and his assistants handed out rosaries, Moisés Dagdug, the energetic former federal deputy and director of the XEVX-AM radio station, the largest in Tabasco since 1980, was remembered in cafes, bars, government offices, newspaper rooms and other places in Tabasco.

That’s right. As Pope Francis blessed the people of Mexico, Ángel Antonio Jiménez, news director of the VX radio station, fearfully reminded us of the constant threats Moisés had received because of his critical stance against the government led by Arturo Núñez.

“He wasn’t afraid to tell people he had been threatened. He received constant threats. “Criminals” had even entered his private home on a couple of occasions. He changed his security systems and even his lifestyle changed dramatically after these attacks,” said Jiménez.

The pope is right: Mexicans are oppressed, despised and violated in our dignity. What does Gov. Núñez have to say? Whatever he may say, many will not believe him.
