Brenda Quevedo Cruz (Mexico)

Person In charge of the Brenda Quevedo Cruz Case: Antonio Gullién .

 

Case Summary:

Brenda Quevedo Cruz was arrested on November 28, 2007, in Louisville, Kentucky by U.S. authorities under the arrest warrant issued by the Sixteenth Court of the District of Criminal Proceedings in the Federal District, in the course of the criminal proceeding 35/2006-II, for her alleged responsibility for the charges of organized crime, unlawful imprisonment in the form of kidnapping and the murder of Hugo Alberto Wallace Miranda.

She remained imprisoned there for nearly two years, struggling to convince the judge of her innocence and that if she were extradited to Mexico she would be tortured, as the authorities did with Juana Hilda González Lomelí, to obtain a confession. Finally, she was extradited to Mexico on September 25, 2009, sent to the State Prison of Santiaguito, in the state of Mexico and later transferred to the Islas Marías Federal Penal Colony.

Brenda was brutally tortured by a number of hooded men who came in as if they were at home to the Prison of Santiaguito and to the Islas Marías Federal Penal Colony on November 27, 2009, and October 13, 2010, respectively, in order to obtain her confession of the kidnapping and the murder of Hugo Alberto Wallace Miranda. According to the report of the psychological evaluation, under the criteria suggested in the Istanbul Protocol, which was carried out by the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), the events of torture that Brenda experienced have caused her serious psychological damage.

She is currently in the Social Readaptation Federal Center (Centro Federal de Readaptación Social) No. “16 CPS-Morelos”, Morelos. She is still awaiting trial and is almost at the end of the first stage of the judicial process that she faces.
