'Survivor' Producer Challenges Arrest Warrant

TMZ has learned lawyers for Bruce Beresford-Redman have filed a formal motion in Mexican court to challenge the arrest warrant filed against their client.

We're told Beresford-Redman's Mexican attorney filed what is called an "amparo" -- a motion claiming Beresford-Redman's human rights have been violated.

Beresford-Redman's legal team feels the investigation into the death of Monica Burgos Beresford-Redman has not been thorough and has unjustly focused on Beresford-Redman ... possibly as a cover for rampant hotel violence.

Earlier this week, Mexican authorities made an official request to have Beresford-Redman extradited back to Mexico.
