Napoleón Gómez Urrutia, who has been living in exile in Vancouver, British Columbia,Canada since 2006 says that he will not return to Mexico as he had planned due to the Mexican government not taking adequate measures to provide for his security. He fled
the country in 2006 after being threatened with arrest for embezzlement, a charge that was brought after he called a mining disaster on Feb. 19, 2006 at Pasta de Conchos “industrial homicide.” He, also, had the gall to attempt to become the head of the
Congress of Labor, threatening the government’s firm control over the umbrella labor organization.
