Today we celebrate the 93th anniversary of the death of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, politician, journalist and Mexican revolutionary leader.
Hoy celebramos el 93 aniversario de la muerte de Felipe Carrillo Puerto, político, periodista y caudillo revolucionario mexicano.

Here's some info from Wiki in Spanish about him:
Felipe Santiago Carrillo Puerto was born on November 8, 1874 and died on January 3, 1924 in Merida. He was a Mexican politician and revolutionary leader  who was Governor of the Yucatán from 1922 to 1924.
      Felipe Carrillo was known for the social and educational works he carried out during his revolutionary government, as well as his commitment to the well-being of the Mayan Indians and his confrontation with the state hacendados during the revolutionary period.

         On February 6, 1922, he enacted the Rationalist Teaching Act, a measure that established the Rationalist School throughout the state. The students acquired knowledge of life itself. Schools were given the means necessary for this type of education; The farms, the orchards and the workshops became common parts of schools.

In 1923, being governor of Yucatan, he was overthrown by the huertistas who tried to take control of the country, and then they dominated in  Yucatán. After his overthrow and capture, Felipe Carrillo was shot 3 of January of 1924 in the general cemetery of Mérida, Yucatán, along with 11 other people, among them, three of his brothers.

     In 1927 Felipe Carrillo Puerto was declared to have meritorious status in  Yucatán by the Congress of that state.

Alleged assailant remains in custody…/
The  state Office of the Attorney General, (La Fiscalía General del Estado), reported that, as a result of the work done by the municipal Public Prosecutor's office (Ministerio Público), 27 year old Limbert A.B.S.M, was successfully processed as a suspect for the the crime of an assault that caused injuries to an 11 year old youth. At a public hearing, the judge ruled against the accused, saying the suspect shall remain in jail for one year as a preventive measure, and a two-month deadline was set for closure of the investigation. (In other words, he remains in jail, without bail, and  will be tried after the investigation is completed.)
       He is accused of causing injuries with a knife to a minor who was taken to the hospital for treatment, and the child's mother filed the complaint, following his arrest, and then the case was taken before the judge by the public prosecutors.
