The Mexican platform Actívate (Get Active) on Aug. 24 delivered more than 33,000 signatures to the Ministry of the Interior and the federal attorney general’s office, demanding justice for two Jesuit priests who were murdered in June.
The signatures were collected through the virtual platform activate.org.mx.
Jesuit priests Javier Campos Morales and Joaquín César Mora Salazar were gunned down inside a church in the town of Cerocahui in the Sierra Tarahumara area of the state of Chihuahua on June 20. Along with them, Pedro Eliodoro Palma Gutiérrez, a local businessman, was also killed.
So far, the authorities have captured more than a dozen alleged members of the crime gang to which the gunman accused of killing the two Jesuit priests belongs, but they have not managed to arrest the murderer.
