Two men who have been in jail for more than a year on charges of taking part in the March, 1994, assassination of Mexican presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio were cleared of the charges Friday, the government news agency Notimex reported. A judge ordered the immediate release of Vicente Mayoral Valenzuela and his son, Rodolfo Mayoral Esquer, for lack of evidence, Notimex said. Government officials said prosecutors are sure to appeal the verdict.

A lone gunman assassinated presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio in March, according to the special prosecutor's latest theory, which was roundly rejected by human rights activists, opposition politicians and ordinary Mexicans on Friday.

For the last year, it has also housed two aging ex-cops and a truck driver, forgotten suspects from Tijuana marooned in the limbo of the Colosio case.

Luis Donaldo Colosio finished the last speech of his life and descended from the makeshift podium of a pickup truck into the chaos of a campaign rally in a Tijuana shantytown. The crowd pressed around the presidential candidate, jostling his entourage in the sloping dirt plaza. As the dance tune "The Snake" blared suddenly in the background, a young man in black emerged from the crush, grasped Colosio's arm, placed a .38-caliber revolver against his head and fired.
