In the midst of the uncertainty of not knowing anything about the men trapped in a mine in Sabinas, Coahuila, now the relatives of these workers revealed that they have been intimidated not to give any statement to the media.
While the rescue efforts of these miners are being carried out, their loved ones denounced to the newspaper El Sol de México that some subjects posing as agents of the Prosecutor’s Office went to their homes as a form of pressure.
These armed men, who travel in white pick-up trucks, they ask families not to give interviews to the media.
These statements coincide with what has been seen in the community of La Agujita, where a truck has been observed with people who identify themselves as security elements, asking reporters to leave the place, because the neighbors allegedly denounce harassment. by journalists.
But not only that, well these alleged agents have also put pressure on the five miners who managed to get out before his companions were trapped.
One of them is Fernando Pompa, the first miner to leave the hospital. Barely a day after his discharge, they went to look for him to help with the rescue work in the coal pit.
“He’s still bad, he walks coughs and coughs, and talks and it’s like he’s out of breath. The armed men came for him, why were we giving interviews and I said: ‘He’s not giving any interviews’ and in fact he himself (miner) said: ‘I am not saying anything against the well‘” recounted one of the relatives of another of the surviving workers.
The truth is that, since August 3, when 10 miners were left underground after the collapse of a mine shaft in Coahuila, they have not been able to be rescued and this generates desperation on the part of their families.
Sergio Cruz, father of one of the trapped workers, saw images that were shown to them of the underwater drone, but he told the newspaper El Universal that only saw dirt, pipes, chains, but nothing clear.
“They tell us that the water, which has already dropped, not to despair, of course, commented the 66-year-old retired miner, who added that they do not want something similar to happen to Pasta de Conchos, referring to the 2006 case in which 65 miners were never rescued.
