A military man linked to the Ayotzinapa case is arrested

The first military man allegedly linked to the Ayotzinapa case was arrested Thursday and confined in the military prison located within Military Camp 1-A, federal government sources reported.

It is about Captain José Martínez Crespo, known as “Captain Crespo”, accused of the crime of organized crime, said the consulted officials.

According to the sources, Martínez Crespo was in charge of the group of soldiers who, during the events that occurred in Iguala, in September 2014, collected information about what happened to the students from the Isidro Burgos Rural Normal School in Ayotzinapa.

Last September, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the military that participated in the Ayotzinapa case, will be arrested and that there are arrest warrants against some.

“Arrest warrants have been issued against the military that are going to be executed. There will be zero impunity, whoever has participated and is shown will be tried,” said the president in the central courtyard of the National Palace, during the presentation of the report on the Ayotzinapa case, six years after the events.

López Obrador assured that there will be no protection for anyone and that the investigation of the case of the Guerrero normalistas will reach the highest levels.
