After "journalist Jorge Carrasco was in Veracruz this week reporting on the killing of another Proceso". The Proceso magazine has release a statement; that because of Carrasco investigation in another Proceso's journalist death, that they have found "reports about a meeting between former officials and government officials, public safety and the Attorney Veracruz whose purpose was to agree hostile actions against the reporter in response to more recent publication Regina around for Martinez, who began circulating across the country on the same Sunday 14." and the intention of the officials might be to "kidnapping and [cause]possible death" to journalist Jorge Carraso.
The most likely explanation for the government officials to send threats towards Jorge Carrasco is in the article he did on which"was critical of Veracruz authorities’ handling of the case of Regina Martinez, the weekly’s correspondent in that state, who was strangled and beaten to death a year ago this month." and how they ended up convicting a junkie for the crime who has "denied guilt, saying he was tortured by Veracruz authorities into making a confession "
Carrasco's article in detail also "exposed numerous holes in the state’s investigation, including questionable evidence and the failure of Veracruz prosecutors to take into account journalistic work by Martinez that angered many of the state’s powerful. The magazine accused state prosecutors of ignoring justice to instead protect the image of Veracruz Gov. Javier Duarte, under whose administration more journalists have been killed or gone missing than anywhere else in Mexico."
Journalists in Mexico are already in danger from kidnapping and death threats from the drug cartels but now to have government officials doing same thing that drugs cartels are doing becomes more problematic. This is a problem when people are in power and they are corrupt, they will do anything to keep their power. Even threatening a journalist that has already exposed their corrupt dealings. While this is good thing that corrupted government officials find journalists to be threatening to their power, meaning that what journalist's report on has the power on taking out these corrupt officials. In reality it should be the corrupt officials running for the hills and not the other way around where it the journalists that are doing this.
