Diego Fernández de Cevallos freed

Former presidential candidate Diego Fernández de Cevallos, kidnapped seven months ago by a mysterious group that communicated through Twitter, has been released and is at home, Televisa reported on Monday.

The former PAN senator, who is close to President Felipe Calderón, had been missing since May 15, when his vehicle was found near his ranch in Querétaro.

In October El Universal reported that the politician’s family paid a $20 million ransom, and that his abductors agreed to release him in early November. Three weeks ago, El Universal reported that Fernández had been freed, based on the reports of his nephew. However, Fernández did not appear at that time. More >
