Miguel Angel Villarino Arnábar

Mexico´s Endangered Journalists

Miguel Angel Villarino Arnábar is imprisoned in Campeche at the order of the Governor of the state, Alejandro Moreno Cárdenas (PRI). He was warned by a person in uniform that he and seven other assassins had orders to kill him and his family.

This person also suggested that he stop writing. However, Villarino has a blog, Bestiómetro, which includes the “Crónicas Carcelerias.”

Villarino was released from prison on May 14. Here is a blog article where he thanked a large number of people, including the Mexico and San Miguel Centers of PEN Interhational: Acción de gracias
