The newspaper “Milenio” has published the first interview with the APPO sympathizer accused with the murder of American independent journalist Brad Will. In the interview Juan Manuel Martinez explains that although he is an APPO sympathizer and did participate in the protests in Oaxaca, he never met Brad Will and was not even in the area that day when Will was shot. “Everything they are saying is lies. There are a number of people who saw me in other places that day; I wasn’t in the street where what happened happened. There isn’t a single video or photographic image that shows that I was there when Brad was shot. I don’t understand how they’ve managed this injustice, but it’s obvious that it’s all lies. As my lawyer says, I am a sacrificial lamb.”
