On July 19, 2011, the IACHR granted precautionary measures for the family of Javier Torres Cruz, in Mexico. Those requesting the precautionary measure allege that Javier Torres Cruz was killed on April 18, 2011, near his community of La Morena—located in the municipality of Petatlán, in the Mexican state of Guerrero—purportedly because of his activities to defend the right to a healthy environment in the Sierra de Petatlán. The request indicates that his family continues to be at risk following his murder, and that unidentified vehicles have been seen keeping the family home under surveillance. The petitioners noted that his brother Felipe Torres, who was with Javier Torres the day he was killed and was seriously wounded in the attack, had received a death threat. The Inter-American Commission asked the State of Mexico to take any necessary measures to guarantee the life and physical integrity of the family members of Javier Torres who live in the community of La Morena, located in Petatlán, Guerrero; to come to an agreement with the beneficiaries and their representatives on the measures to be adopted; and to inform the Commission about the actions taken to investigate the facts that led to the adoption of precautionary measures.
