Thanks for correcting the link. This is the part I thought was important: "MEMO to the Mexican authorities: Canadians do not find it comforting to see a suspect paraded before the media even before he is paraded before a judge. Nor do they find spontaneous confessions persuasive if the accused is flanked by masked, black-clad, rifle-toting storm troopers.

Such displays smack of state intimidation, which hardly reinforces confidence in Mexico as a safe place. What would be confidence-inspiring is professional police work that stands up to the scrutiny of an impartial judiciary."

Of course the article doesn't speak for all Canadians but I think its important that the Mexican people know what the Canadian public is reading. Its not a matter of whether the victim is Canadian or Mexican. Its a matter of human rights for both the victim and the accused.

By posting, you confirm that you have read and agreed to be bound by the board's usage terms.
