Authorities went to the location provided by the tip, which was in downtown Cancun.He noted that when police neared the building they heard cries for help. Once inside, the victims pointed to four men, all of Cuban nationality, as the people responsible for their deprivation of liberty.All four were arrested. Nadar Kuri added that while they were transporting the victims to hospital for medical attention, a fifth man of Mexican nationality was also identified as being part of the kidnapping ring.The official explained “He was pointed out by approximately 30 victims as the one who brought them food, so he was also arrested.”He added that inside the building, police found cash in addition to telecommunication equipment and vehicles.The four arrested Cubans and the 39 Cuban victims were all made available to the Public Ministry of the Federation to determine their legal status.Due to Cuba’s proximity to Cancun, which is about 300 kilometers, Nada Kuri says migrants from Cuba see the Mexican resort as a place to stay or a first step on their journey to the United States.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
