Mireles supervises the ISSSTE Clinics of Uruapan and Morelia; urging improvements
As followers of Doctor Mireles know, since his release from prison, three years after his arrest, the court acquitted him of all charges in 2018.
When he was released he was a different man, less sure, less strong.  While he was in prison he suffered a fracture of the spine and was not given medical treatment for a long period.  He also suffered two heart attacks, which may have been linked to being improperly medicated and diet.  “I had two heart attacks, I still have diabetes. And I have spinal problems.  I gained that here, from the inside; I didn’t have that outside”.
During and after his release, the new president of Mexico Andres Manuel López Obrador, has been an ardent supporter and worked for his release. 

Upon his release;
“I am happy to see you all, I thank you all for all the support you have given me, because the struggle must continue,” said the former autodefensa leader of Michoacán.
As time went by it was evident his days of leading autodefensas were over.  It is a high probability he made an agreement to stay away from autodefensa activity.  If you take a look at his twitter page you will find political tweets, and medical tweets, missing is autodefensa news, not even about the violent new war in his home town between El Abuelo and El Mencho.
So, it is as though we see him now where we found him, a medical doctor, working the clinics, working the career he loves—–he appears happy and well, and for us who respects and cares about him, that is a great thing.
