translated from Spanish: 6 more detainees in Guadalajara accuse police abuse

The Human Rights Commission of Jalisco reported on 7 June that six men were arrested in Guadalajara, near the Government Palace, on the night of Saturday, after another day of protests against police abuse.
“About 10 p.m., six older men were arrested in downtown Guadalajara after a group of people threw objects at Government Palace and confronted police elements. This happened several hours after the afternoon demonstrations, so the staff of this defender returned to that point,” the Commission said in a statement.
“The detainees were transferred to the State Prosecutor’s Office where the staff of this defender was present. The six people were interviewed and five of them filed complaints that they were arrested with excessive use of force and injured. Precautionary measures were issued to safeguard their physical integrity and ensure their medical care and resolve their legal status as soon as possible,” he added.
Neither the Jalisco Prosecutor’s Office nor the State Security Secretariat has issued an official report on these arrests, which follow the days of protest over the death of young Giovanni Lopez, allegedly at the hands of municipal police, and the arbitrary arrests of demonstrators made by ministerial police.

On the situation of two officers of the Jalisco Prosecutor’s Office, allegedly responsible for arbitrary detentions of protesters, the State Human Rights Commission stated:
“This advocacy met with them and scrimbled their grievances; precautionary measures were issued to allow them to see their families, respect their due process, ensure their physical integrity and have a legal representative. Our staff, within the scope of their competence, continues their intervention to avoid arbitrariness in due process.”
