NUEVO LEÓN – The number of injuries in the Cadereyta Jimenéz prison rose to seven, after a riot took place Monday afternoon.
Aldo Fasci Zuaza, the spokesman for the Nuevo León Security Coordination Group said “The people injured include a sheriff with a broken leg, whose name won’t be released due to security reasons, and a cop by the name of Roberto Flores Orozco, who was the first to leave, with an injury to his arm.”
José Luis de Dios Lacoraly suffered an angina. His condition is stable. Erick López Charly suffered a head injury. Francisco Gael López Alemán and José Cipriano Morales Rincón were both severely beaten and Onésimo Zapata Hernández suffered a small puncture wound.
Fasci Zuaza attributed the recent use of technology to scan visitors for drugs, in addition to the drugs that have been seized, as the reasons for the prisoners’ anger.
“Years ago, we patted people down which resulted in actual human rights violations, so now we use this equipment, which is infallible,” Fasci Zuaza said.
