Ah! Waited for this news to appear.

(I read it first in an spanish newspaper).

The truth (at least what I consider the truth) is not a case of "false testimony". The spurious dwarf and traitor Calderón, put in jail some nationalist elements of the Army that opposed to some of its plans regarding the so called "War against drugs".

Nice to see that Peña Nieto at least put things right in these cases.

Let's hope they will be reintegrated in the Mexican Army with enough authority to promote their views, which I thing are more correct.

I n all the countries where witness is the evidence to dictate a sentence for any case, the judge decision could be a mistake because a witness can lie, therefore, such practice is insecure and not so intelligent. 1

There is no doubt that many elements the PRI (partido Revolucionario Institucional) never should be part of the Mexican goverment, because they are people unable to rule a country with justice.
