Chiapas state Justice Minister Amador Rodriguez says the state government reviewed 360 files forwarded by farming and religious groups and determined there was little or no evidence in 133 cases.

About 50 of those released Monday hadn't consumed anything but water with honey for 38 days to protest what they call their political imprisonment.

Local bishops and human rights activists had organized demonstrations calling for their release.
