Falsely accused and wrongly imprisoned for over 10 months, the campesino ecologista Felipe Arreaga was finally released from a local Zihuatanejo jail Thursday afternoon after the judge absolved him of the accusations against him.

I don't think we can actually say justice was served, because he spent so long in jail, but it's an encouraging development to say the least. Now let's see what happens in the case of Albertano Peņaloza, another campesino ecologista who was shot along with 2 of his children (who died) in front of his home and who has been hiding out ever since. He has also been falsely accused of the same murder as Felipe Arreaga and has a warrant out for his arrest.
