José Maldonado Sotelo

Mexico´s Endangered Journalists

José Maldonado Sotelo is the Director of the online news portal Noventa Grados, based in Morelia. On July 21, 2017, he received an email containing the words, “Not one more note, dear José, otherwise this will be the last, we assure you.” The email was full of threats against Maldonado, and demands that Noventa Grados cease publication and research on the activities of senior officials of the office of the Attorney General of the State of Michoacán.

Noventa Grados has a history of receiving threats of this nature.
