"The judges said the basic rights of the jailed men had been violated, but made it clear they were not ruling on the men's guilt or innocence.

The 1997 attack took place in southern Chiapas state, which was deeply divided at the time over a Zapatista uprising.

The court's ruling was met with dismay by relatives of the victims.

They also warned of the risk of renewed violence if the freed men returned to their communities."

well which side is the side that is right?

I feel so bad for the family's of the people who were slaughtered.

I can't feel for the people who killed them, but can understand the violation issues allowing them to be set free. We have the same issues here in America, wrong people being jailed or the right people, but getting the right people in prison sometimes is done dirtier then the crime committed.
