Mexico has the one of the highest rates of kidnapping in the world. Government figures say around 1000 people are taken every year. But others argue that the true figure could be almost ten times as high. Vladimir Hernandez gained rare insight into this murky world and obtained an interview with a kidnapper himself.
** WARNING: contains strong language and some disturbing descriptions of violence**
The BBC cannot independently verify the kidnapper’s claims.
