LA HUACANA, Michoacán.- After the retention of eleven soldiers by settlers in La Huacana, Michoacán, who asked to return insured weapons, the Ministry of National Defense chose to return it.

In a statement, the Sedena announced that to avoid “a misfortune” was that the decision was made.

On Sunday, May 26, people demanded that the soldiers return weapons and vehicles that had previously been confiscated. 

In a video that circulates in social networks, it is observed when a group of people threatens the officers.

Hey boss, I want you to send us all the weapons in a private car, to La Huacana. We are the people and we are waiting for weapons. You send them to the name of the town. Here are your boys and they will not leave if you do not give us the weapons you took from the boys. They are defending themselves (the boys) and you took the weapons to Gabino Barrera, “a civilian is heard to say on a cell phone.

Sedena stressed that in this situation and “in order not to cause misfortune, such as would have happened if they had used their weapons, the soldiers turned in their weapons.”

He stressed that the facts of La Huacana refute the arguments that indicate that the Mexican Army is not trained in human rights matters and pointed out that this case demonstrates the life risk faced by more than 60,000 troops.

AMLO recognizes them

The attitude of the Army elements retained and assaulted by inhabitants of La Huacana, Michoacán, was responsible, dignified and very brave, said Andrés Manuel López Obrador, President of the Republic.

“The attitude of the soldiers was very responsible, very dignified, very brave because what is cowardice is to abuse our fellow men, that is cowardice. All my support and my support to the soldiers, the sailors, “he said.
