Mexican archdiocese praises respect for freedom of expression shown by Electoral institute

.- In a statement released Tuesday, the Archdiocese of Mexico City praised the country's Federal Electoral Institute for rejecting an injunction requested by the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD). The injunction would have prohibited the Catholic Church and her members from exercising legitimate freedom of expression, the archdiocese said.

The archdiocese commended the institute for “ignoring the dictatorial and repressive measures that the PRD wished to impose on Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez and Father Hugo Valdemar Romero.” The statement added that the injunction “would have been to the detriment of tolerance, plurality and democracy in Mexico.”

Cardinal Sandoval and Fr. Valdemar were recently sued by the Mayor of Mexico City Marcelo Ebrard for defamation. Ebrard is a member of the Democratic Revolution Party.

“The right to information and freedom of expression are the maximum ideal of a free, participative and modern society in which authoritarian attitudes like those expressed by the PRD should never exist and are intended to subjugate citizens and deprive them of their fundamental rights,” the statement concluded.
