  • The meeting comes at a high point of conflict between the two bodies charged with investigating the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala, Guerrero

CIUDAD DE MÉXICO, 06ABRIL2016.- Alejandro Valencia y Claudia Paz, miembros del Grupo Interdisciplinario de Expertos Independientes (GIEI) de la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos, durante la conferencia de prensa en el Museo Memoria y Tolerancia. Los expertos informaron que la Procuraduría General de la República (PGR), a faltado sistemáticamente los acuerdos en torno a la labor conjunta que realizan en el caso Ayotzinapa, al haber difundido un informe sobre el tercer peritaje de fuego en el basurero de Cocula y en el cual no hay consenso entre los peritos que realizaron las pruebas. El grupo señaló que la procuraduría a faltado a los acuerdos en el sentido de que antes de cualquier acción o difusión de avanses en la invetigación, se tendría que haber reunido con los integrantes del grupo y, fundamentalmente, con familiares de las vitimas, en este caso, con los padres de los normalistas de ayotzinapa desaparecidos.

The GIEI said that the PGR had broken an agreement between the two bodies by releasing the opinion by fire experts that 17 bodies had been burned at the Cocula dump.The topics to be discussed at the meeting were not clarified.This Friday, there will be a meeting between the PGR, the GIEI and the fire forensic scientists, where it will be decided if investigations into the Cocula dump will continue.The GIEI accused the PGR of having mischaracterized the opinion of the fire experts as a final report, when in fact it was a preliminary, inconclusive set of opinions. The PGR claimed that the report indeed was conclusive, and that all that is left to be determined is if all or just some of the 43 students were burned at the dump.However, the GIEI’s mandate obliges them to coordinate with the PRG in their investigation, but the mandate will end on April 30. Secretary of the Interior Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong has said that he will not extend the mandate.
