The Overseas Press Club of America writes to thank and support your decision in April to have federal authorities take over the investigations of the deaths of two journalists, murdered earlier that month.
Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla , a crime reporter for Stereo 91 in Nuevo Laredo , was shot on April 5 in front of her radio station, and Raul Gibb Guerrero , owner of the Poza Rica-based daily, La Opinión , in Vera Cruz, was killed on April 8.
This week marks two months since your decision to have more highly trained federal detectives look into both cases. We write to ask you to make public any news in the cases and to make sure that both remain prominently in the public mind. A mention by Your Excellency of your justified and continued interest in the two cases would send a message to those who would attempt to stifle the freed of the press in your country and those whose murderous deeds should not go unpunished.
We would appreciate any comment from your offices.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
