The National Commission of Honesty and Justice (CNHJ) from Brunette dismissed the complaint filed by Basilia “N” in relation to the complaints against Félix Salgado Macedonio, candidate for governor of Guerrero, for the crime of intentional rape.

“I have denounced the rape and violence of which I was a victim, providing various evidences that make it completely demonstrable that Félix Salgado Macedonio committed a deplorable crime against me. The women we denounce always face ridicule, disbelief and machismo that protects rapists. But in my case the adversities have been greater when I dared to denounce a powerful politician ”, narrates part of Basilia’s letter“ N ”.
In the accusation against Salgado Macedonio, the alleged victim indicated that he unexpectedly attacked her at a home in Acapulco, Guerrero, in 1998 when he had offered his help.
“He rapes me, after the rape is over, all so complaining about what he had done, he lifts his pants, looks for his wallet and throws 100 pesos in my face”, he recounted.

On its own, the Guerrero Prosecutor’s Office closed the investigation, since the crime had already prescribed, since that happened more than 20 years ago.
However, these types of stories have upset different sectors of the population. The morning of this Tuesday, February 9, A letter signed by 150 men in which they subscribe to the idea of withdrawing Guerrero’s candidacy for the Moreno was viralized.
Academics, activists and artists asked the party that put Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the presidency to remove the senator with a license, since a man repeatedly accused of crimes of sexual assault cannot be a popular representative.
“We speak out for breaking the pact of silence and complicity between men and demand the withdrawal of the candidacy of Félix Salgado Macedonio for the governorship of the state of Guerrero, because a man who has been accused of rape and sexual abuse, cannot run for a popularly elected position, “the text reads.

Which adds to the series of demonstrations against Salgado Macedonio by civil society; Nevertheless, Mario Delgado, president of Morena, has repeatedly expressed his support for Salgado Macedonio.
“There is no sentence by any authority that proves that he has committed any crime. As long as Félix Salgado maintains his political rights, he is our candidate “Delgado Carrillo expressed on January 31.
Delgado thus responded to questions about the candidacy of Salgado Macedonio, whom at least three women have pointed out for alleged sexual abuse in different years (1998 and 2016 in two cases), which triggered investigations by the Guerrero Prosecutor’s Office, which dismissed one of the accusations because the crime prescribed.
