    Title:[Lawyer defends civil patrollers accused in Rio Negro massacre] 1 of 2
    Abstract:Footage from a public hearing in a courtroom. A lawyer gives a speech defending Carlos Chen, Pedro González Gómez and Fermín Lajuj Xitumul, three patrollers accused of killing two women whose bodies were exhumed from the site of the Rio Negro massacre. The lawyer argues that there is insufficient evidence to corroborate the survivors' testimonies. He argues that the verdict should not rely upon the testimonies of individuals who claim to have witnessed the massacre seventeen years earlier. Tape cuts abruptly to a different setting. There are interviews with two men who witnessed the 1982 massacres. Tape then cuts back to courtroom. The lawyer for the prosecution speaks (not logged).
