February 11, 2019

The announcer Bersaín Gálvez Ramírez, owner of the local radio station La Más Invasora 93.7 FM, was found wounded inside his vehicle, after being attacked by bullets by a group of unidentified individuals, the early hours of Monday, in the municipality of Chicomuselo, Chiapas.

The communicator was transferred urgently to the Comalapa Border Community Basic Hospital, where his health condition was reported as serious, since it had a bullet in the head, so he had to be transferred to the Comitán de Domínguez Regional Hospital.

Bersaín Gálvez, better known as "El Súper Nene", broadcasts a radio program of musical indulgences, through which he sends greetings to radio listeners of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas and Mexicans who are in the United States.

Faced with this attack, journalists from Chiapas condemned the attack and demanded that the Attorney General of the State, as well as the General of the Republic (FGR) clarify the facts. In addition, they demanded the intervention of the State and National Commissions of Human Rights, and that guarantees of the free exercise of the office be provided.

Last September, journalist Mario Gómez Sánchez, who worked for El Heraldo de Chiapas, was assassinated in the municipality of Yajalón, and for whose crime two material authors have been arrested. A month later, in October, the journalist Sergio Martínez González was murdered in Tuxtla Chico, whom the State Attorney's Office said was involved in the murder of a member of the Mara Salvatrucha.

Just last Saturday, February 9, a group of armed men murdered the journalist Jesús Eugenio Ramos Rodríguez, known as "Chuchín", in the municipality of Emiliano Zapata, Tabasco. According to local media, the radio announcer was having breakfast at a hotel cafe with some friends, around 06:45, when three people arrived and fired at least eight times against him.

With this crime, four journalists have been killed since the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador began on December 1, 2018. The journalist Rafael Murúa Manríquez was murdered on January 20 in Baja California Sur.

The body of Murúa Manríquez - with diverse impacts of firearm in the thorax - was found in a breach 40 kilometers from San Ignacio Santa Rosalía, where he filed and exercised his journalism in a critical manner before the local government.

On December 1, 2018, Jesús Alejandro Márquez Jiménez, a journalist who worked in the newspaper Critica for nearly 8 years, was murdered. At the present time he was the general director of the newspaper Orion Informativo, a local media that he founded just over a year ago.

Márquez Jiménez was found with a shot in the head, in a cane field in the town of Pantanal, municipality of Xalisco, near the airport of Tepic, Nayarit. The communicator left a day earlier, unexpectedly, a meeting with his relatives, to which he did not return.

Not even seven days had passed since the murder of Márquez Jiménez, when the homicide of Diego García Corona, a 35-year-old reporter for the weekly Morelos, was reported while on board his vehicle in Ecatepec, State of Morelos. .

On February 5, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said that freedom of expression and journalistic exercise during his administration will be guaranteed. He stressed that, if necessary, journalists will have bodyguards.

"There are no bodyguards, there are no bodyguards for politicians, for high public officials, but for those who suffer harassment and threats. Those who may have their lives at risk have our full support, "said the president during his morning press conference.

The Federal Government will strengthen measures to protect human rights defenders and journalists, said Jesús Ramírez Cuevas, General Coordinator of Social Communication of the Presidency of the Republic, after the crime of "Chuchín" Ramos in Tabasco.
