Former Police Director Held in 1975 Kidnapping

From Times Wire Reports

Police arrested Carlos Solana Macias, a former police director in the northern state of Nuevo Leon, in connection with the 1975 kidnapping of leftist rebel Jesus Piedra Ibarra, who was never seen again.

It was the latest chapter in Mexico’s uneven efforts to prosecute political crimes of the 1960s and ‘70s.

Solana Macias was the third former official to be arrested in the April 18, 1975, disappearance of Ibarra, who allegedly belonged to one of the urban guerrilla groups that fought the government in the 1970s.
