CANCÚN — Delegates from the Isla Mujeres taxi driver union gathered on Saturday, February 25, to denounce constant threats by Eduardo Peniche “El Wato”, leader of the union and his delegates who seek to continue to lead the organization.

“El Wato” and his followers are opposed to voting for a new president for the local public transportation organization.

They said that the taxi driver who was executed last week on Av Leona Vicario, Region 219, was deprived of his life for seeking democracy for the “Gustavo Díaz Ordaz”Isla Mujeres taxi drivers’ union.

They added that the person who was shot dead had already been threatened at a party held on the island during the month of December, even claiming that the deceased was detained and Eduardo Peniche ‘El Wato’ entered the jail to threaten him.

Likewise, they asked the General State Attorney to turn the investigation line to Eduardo Peniche and union delegates, because they fear for their life, and rumors have reached them that two other taxi drivers have received death threats too.
