Mexican authorities have discovered two camps in the western state of Jalisco, where a cartel kidnapped some 40 people it offered work tothrough social networks, the state prosecutor said Monday.
Jalisco prosecutor Eduardo Almaguer said the discovery was made after receiving six complaints, each for the disappearance of one person, which the staff of his office investigated.
"The common denominator is that these people advised their families that they should move to the municipality of Tala, Jalisco, because through communications on the Facebook social network they were invited there to get work," he told a news conference.
In the first camp, found in the community called Las Navajas, authorities were able to rescue one of the victims, who told them about 60 armed men were guarding at least 40 people who were kidnapped.
According to his testimony, as soon as they were transferred to the place, they were forced to build their own houses with wood and branches and warned that they would be trained to defend the criminal organization which press reports indicate as the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel.
In that camp authorities found weapons and training equipment, while in the second there were also bone remains. Almaguer said that forensic personnel came to the site to collect samples and examine them.
The cartel uses false profiles on Facebook to offer jobs as pollsters and even as municipal police, so the prosecutor of Jalisco asked the public to ignore those accounts and denounce them.
