Facing death to report the story in Mexico

March 22nd, 2013

Torture, sexual assault, kidnapping and death threats have not silenced Mexican investigative journalist Lydia Cacho.

She has courageously reported on corruption, drug violence and sex trafficking in her home country for several decades, sometimes even exposing the corrupt practices of government officials and high-powered business people.

Fearing for her life, she was forced to flee Mexico last summer, but has now returned there to continue her work.

In the video above, Cacho tells CNN’s Hala Gorani why she continues her fight to report the truth, despite the horrendous challenges she faces.

    A true fighter for justice! More such fighters are needed worldwide to expose corrupt governments.. The world is mum while governments kill their own people. Leaders don't lead anymore, they own countries. Countries should form a league that sees to it that all governments rule in a democratic way and are held accountable for all inhumane activities. The UN is nothing but a warmonger. To the lady journalist, we salute you!
