According to information obtained by ZETA, it indicates that around 6:20 p.m. detonations by firearms were heard in the parking lot of a house marked with number 48 of Vista Dorada street, private Chalco, in the aforementioned neighborhood.

The first data indicates that witnesses reported to the emergency center about an unconscious person, apparently with a facial injury, aboard a red sedan-type vehicle, which had crashed glass on the driver's side.

It is known that Maldonado accessed the Mechanism for the Protection of Journalists (Federal) for almost a year due to threats he would have received from envoys of the now former governor, as he commented at an ANPAC meeting.

On January 19, it was reported that PSN (Media Sport de México SA de CV) had been seized and that Bonilla Valdez had to pay her lost wages, benefits and costs, which, according to the journalist, exceeded 500 thousand pesos.

“I achieved my goal, because I never asked for more than what it was, or anything. Yes, I went in the morning, it was with the president, it is because I knew that in the northwest I had nothing to do, here Bonilla's hand and power was very great, so that's why I went to see the president," said the journalist. the day of the embargo.

"I have come to ask you for support, help and labor justice because I fear for my life," Maldonado said then when explaining the situation of the litigation.

On August 24, 2021, Lourdes Maldonado began her program Brebaje, which was broadcast on Radio Sintoniza Sin Fronteras and on the internet.

Maldonado was also part of the Club Primera Plana, which recognized the work of fellow journalists."


Taken from El Sol de Tijuana, what Lourdes said to AMLO back in 2019:

“I also come here to ask for support, help, and labor justice, because I fear for my life, it is a lawsuit that I have been with for 6 years and that came out in my favor in the Federal Conciliation Board, however, recently it was It was, they returned the file and in 3 weeks it came out against me, ”said the journalist at the conference.

“That is why I am here asking for your support because you have said that taking away or not paying employees’ salaries is unfair and is even a sin, sir, and I know that against the corruption that exists in the Federal Conciliation Board and the that I am now living in Tijuana against this powerful character I can do nothing without his support.”
