One of the strongest problems that Mexico faces in terms of security are kidnappings, since many people have been deprived of their liberty and not even some celebrities have been able to get rid of living this nightmare.
Iran Castillo, whom we remember as an actress in soap operas produced by Televisa, such as Pink Shoelaces, dreamers, Preciousamong others, spoke of the hard times she experienced when she was held captive by a criminal gang and that she even suffered from Stockholm syndrome.
According to the Mi Scielo page, Stockholm syndrome is a paradoxical phenomenon in which the victim develops a positive bond with their captor as a response to the trauma of captivity. In an interview with the journalist Mara Patricia Castañeda, the interpreter of I for him He talked about how difficult it has been to overcome this stage of his life.
It’s just that look, I feel that to this day I’m still solving it, I’ll explain why. When this happens to me, have you heard of Stockholm syndrome? I feel that I had that syndrome for a long time.
I’m going to explain why, they kept me there for three days and it was very intense. They never covered me up as such, but they always told me ‘Don’t turn to see us and if you turn to see us, well, it’s almost going to be fatal for you.’
Then I saw little feet, out of the corner of my eye and things like that, and the voice. But they were always there and I, let’s say, was with them, well you make a link, really, it’s impressive but you make a link because now it’s so clear to me that we are all one and that we are all connected.
The actress continued saying that she was scared to death and that, as a consequence, she connected with the fear of the criminals and that became a general fear, because the kidnappers also handle the fear of being caught or put into the jail.
And from there you are bound by that fear and the truth is that they never hit me, they didn’t rape me, they didn’t touch me, nothing. Some of them even told me: ‘Flaquita, what can I bring you for breakfast?’ Good vibes, I could even say.
Although they did not physically attack her, the actress revealed that there was a lot of psychological abuse by the person who was the head of the gang, who was the person who spoke to them on the phone, someone who was later found out to be in prison.
The one who spoke on the phone was the bad guy, so he did do violence to me a lot, everything he told me, that suddenly they put the gun (to my head) and so on.
Because they did not physically attack her, when she returned home, she had the firm conviction not to say anything, because she was very grateful that they did not do anything bad to her and even thought that they had practically saved her life.
So I got home and everyone was already there, there was the SEIDO (Deputy Prosecutor’s Office Specialized in Organized Crime Investigation) and they tell me what I have to say; and I was super traumatized because I promised them I wasn’t going to say anything.
The also singer felt very guilty for having to report them, because she believed that, in some way, she was behaving badly with people who were so nice to her. Obviously, the authorities were asking her for information, to which she only replied that she would not give it to them.
Well, they had to talk to a psychologist so that she would go talk to me, because I was in that no and no and no, they are almost almost my friends. Do me the favor. Crazy right?
After the actress The tiger of Santa Julia took therapy, began to realize what had really happened. In the end, she accepted that she did not owe her captors anything, since those people had abused her by depriving her of her freedom. Besides, she was not the only victim who had been kidnapped, so they deserved to pay the consequences of her actions.
