Mexico’s misguided request that Canada commence extradition proceedings against Napoleón Gómez Urrutia
We, [Name of organization] , hereby certify that we have all followed the details of Mexico’s persistent and misguided efforts to attempt to pursue politically motivated criminal charges against Napoleón Gómez Urrutia , the democratically elected leader of Mexico’s most important industrial union, the National Union of Mine, Metal, Steel and Related Workers of the Mexican Republic (Los Mineros).
As we are sure that you have been told by your officials, Mexico’s charges against Gómez have now been dismissed by various levels of the Mexican Courts at least ten times. Unfortunately, due to anomalies in the Mexican legal system, these same charges have been recycled over and over again for the last eight years, and, we are now informed, have recently been presented to Canada by Mexico, yet again, as a basis upon which you should order the commencement of extradition proceedings against Gómez.
Minister, we also certify that over the past eight years we have watched Canada refuse to permit Canada’s extradition laws to be used by Mexico to pursue the political and economic interests of the mining companies of Mexico whose members Gómez well and respectfully represents.
As we have watched, we have been proud of Canada’s commitment to the rule of law and to the democratic right of workers to seek representation to assist them to negotiate with their employers without interference. We were proud of Canada when it rejected Mexico’s charges and granted Gómez permanent residency on May 26, 2011 and then went on to grant him Canadian citizenship on June 30, 2014.
We write to you today to ask you not to betray this impressive record. We ask you to continue to uphold the rule of law by continuing to steadfastly refuse to permit Canada to become a party to Mexico’s shameful effort to continue the persecution of Gómez Urrutia.
Although we write to you now we also all indicate that we would be pleased to come to Ottawa to meet with you, and other members of your government that you wish, to tell you that we are convinced that Napoleón Gómez Urrutia is absolutely and totally innocent of the criminal charges that Mexico recycles and that, in fact, he is a positive and constructive force for Mexico and its people.
