Human Rights attorney speaks on human trafficking at UT Law School, Sept. 17


Human Rights attorney Leonel Rivero-Rodríguez, who is in charge of the investigation of the murder of FLOC organizer Santiago Rafaél Cruz, will address the connection between the needs of U.S. labor market, that draws Mexican workers to the U.S., and the corruption and black market of human trafficking, at the University of Toledo Law School Auditorium on Sept. 17, 2008, at 5:00PM.


According to FLOC, it is this corruption that FLOC confronted in Monterrey, México which ultimately led to the death of its staff person Santiago Rafaél Cruz.  Attorney Rivero-Rodríguez is conducting an ongoing parallel investigation that has kept the investigation by the lead prosecutor for the Nuevo Leon Attorney General “honest and continuous.” 


According to a FLOC press release, Rivero-Rodríguez’s experience has been “invaluable in guiding the successful implementation of the protective measures awarded by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to FLOC personnel.”  


The event is co-sponsored by the University of Toledo Law School, the Toledo Blade, Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, and Gallon & Tackacs Attorneys at Law.
