Mexico´s Endangered Journalists

On December 25, 2017 at 4 AM, some unknown persons sprayed gasoline on the door of the house of Jaime Méndez Pérez in San Agustín de las Juntas, OA, and set fire to it. This was not attributed to Christmas celebrations.

Méndez Pérez is the director of Agencia JM Noticias, based in Oaxaca. In 2011, he was acquitted of defamation in a suit brought by the former legal director of the State of Oaxaca.
