Saúl Becerra Reyes
On 21 October 2008, witnesses watched on as 31 year-old Saúl Becerra Reyes and five other men were arrested by soldiers in a car-wash in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua state.
Five days later, the five men arrested with Saúl were transferred from a military base to the Federal Attorney General’s Office and charged with drug and firearm offences. The authorities never acknowledged that Saul had been detained.
