Information about Cesar Freyre Morales

Based on the information provided by MXporFC. 

According to information and documents provided by the activist group MXporFC, there are strong indications that César Freyre Morales—Brenda Quevedo Cruz and Jacobo Tagle Dobin’s co-defendants, among others— was tortured on several occasions. For this reason, we wonder why César Freyre Morales recently declared to the judge that he had not been subjected to any kind of torture. 

The information available to MXporFC points out that the assistant to the public prosecutor’s office and prosecutor of manufactured convicts, Brenda Quevedo Cruz, Jacobo Tagle Dobin, Tony and Albert Castillo Cruz, César Freyre Morales, Juana Hilda González Lomeli, and Jael Malagón Uscanga, has reached an agreement with the mother of César Freyre Morales. The information has not yet been published, but the MXporFC activists are investigating the trail of a possible bribery attempt on the part of Hugo Alberto Miranda Torres’ mother.

In his letter to President Enrique Peña Nieto, which was not answered, César Freyre Morales begins describing the details of his arrest, arbitrary detention and subsequent imprisonment. In all these events, César describes that he was subjected to inhuman tortures that sought his self-incrimination in the kidnapping of Hugo Alberto Wallace Miranda in 2006. 

César mentions that his partner, Juana Hilda, supposedly had a love affair at the same time with Alberto Wallace. He also claims that this is the only reason he knows which links him to this case. Juana Hilda was arbitrarily detained for a while, but she was released after she incriminated César as the perpetrator of the kidnapping. Juana Hilda made this accusation after she was tortured and raped. 

César was subjected to a number of acts of torture including electric shock, choking, sewage immersion, blows, etc. whose authors, César assumes, were members of the Secretariat of Public Security of Mexico City, following the orders of Isabel Miranda de Wallace.

He also mentions that his right to the presumption of innocence was violated when he was put on media display with a “planted” weapon.

César also says that, on numerous occasions during his initial arrest and during his stay in prison, he received unofficial visits, was subjected to physical and psychological torture, acts of intimidation, and he and members of his family received death threats from Isabel Wallace and several public servants.

César says to have denounced these abuses before the Fourth District Court, without any results.

César mentions that both his mother and his sister were deprived of their freedom for 15 months and prosecuted on alleged charges that were never proved. César’s family has already presented complaints before human rights commissions (D.F., Edomex, IACHR) and before public prosecutor’s offices for all these occurrences. César’s mother, Maria Rosa Morales Ibarra, has filed a complaint against Isabel Miranda de Wallace for moral damages, investigation that, according to César, remains stagnant.

On unofficial visits that Miranda de Wallace made to César, she threatened to kill him, and to have his relatives disappeared, imprisoned or killed. In addition, she mentioned to him that she had the support of the then-President of Mexico Felipe Calderón.

César says he entered a guilty plea under two terrible acts of torture inside the prison in October 2010. The statements were audio and video recorded and on those occasions he was threatened with death if he revealed what had happened to him. César holds the then-prison director Juan Alberto Montoya fully responsible for all these occurrences. 

Finally, César mentions that he has health problems (hypertension and Raynaud’s disease) that require special care and medications. For this reason, he requests President Peña Nieto to issue instructions to whom it may concern so that his trial follows the law. He also mentions that together with the letter he is sending him the document “25 reasons to doubt the Wallace case.”
