PRESUMED GUILTY Out of Mexican Screens

The Mexican exhibition chain Cinépolis, that is acting as theatrical distributor of the controversial and box office-hit documentary film Presunto culpable / Presumed Guilty, pulled today the film from its theaters after they received a notification from the Ministry of the Interior to stop the screenings. The original order was issued by a judge last Wednesday after Víctor Manuel Reyes, the witness of the case filled a complaint arguing that he was featured in the film without his  consent. "We profoundly regret that because of this judicial order, thousands of Mexican will lose the opportunity to know the reality of our system of criminal justice," Cinepolis said in a statement where it announced that they would comply with the order, but they were contemplating the use of alternative legal instances to appeal the decision.
