Journalist murder put SLP on the level of other states
Insecurity is a question of perception, says the director of IPAC
By José Luis Vázquez
The director of Industriales Potosinos AC (Ipac), Guillermo Aldrett Rodríguez, said that the fact that the murder of Daniel Esqueda Castro has transcended the local to become a national and even international issue, puts San Luis Potosí “in the same spotlight than other states in security topics”.
However, Aldrett Rodriguez said that “The issue of security is perceptive,” as a response to questioning whether he feels safe in the capital of San Luis Potosi, where the crime rate remains on the rise.
In this regard, Guillermo Aldrett added that the hard data show that criminal acts are being “attended” by the corporations involved in it and considered that the incidence in crimes of federal jurisdiction is scarce in the state and in the capital.
On the other hand, the businessman also mentioned that according to the information that is read in the newspapers have increased the crimes of common law, such as robbery to the passerby or to houses, which, he says, affect ordinary citizens.
