On December 7, 2011, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled "U.S. Says Mexico Tortured American in Custody", by Nicholas Casey, Page A15. The article stated that on December 1, 2011, the U.S. Parole Commission made a finding that American citizen SHOHN HUCKABEE, 24, was "TORTURED IN FOREIGN CUSTODY" after his arrest on drug charges. The article also stated:
"The parole board reduced the five-year sentence given to him [Shohn Huckabee] by a MEXICAN JUDGE, AND RELEASED HIM WITH 'TIME SERVED,' or 26 months, under a treaty signed between the two countries. The commission didn't comment on the marijuana charges."
"The Dec. 1 finding could raise tensions between Washington and Mexico City over how Mexico is pursuing the drug war. Under terms of the MERIDA INITIATIVE, the $1.4 billion aid package given to Mexico and Central America government to fight drugs, Mexico could lose 15% of the aid if there is EVIDENCE OF HUMAN-RIGHTS VIOLATIONS."
"A spokesman for SENATOR KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON (R., Texas), warned Tuesday that the State Department "should be very carefully vetting MERIDA FUNDING," and asked that it "investigate the reported torture of SHOHN HUCKABEE."
