Twenty of the paramilitaries who were among the material authors of the Acteal Massacre in 1997 were released from prison on 12th August, and the cases of 37 more are under review. A week later, documents were declassified which prove that the Mexican government and its army authorized the paramilitary activity in Chiapas which led to the massacre. The Acteal massacre was, therefore, un Crimen de Estado (a state crime) perpetrated by the government of President Ernesto Zedillo.

The men are members of the Army of God, an evangelical group. Violence is increasing and tension is high.
