MEXICO CITY – The Citizen Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice demanded that a no new period of work be authorized for the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) for investigating the Iguala case because, they claim, they are not looking for the truth.
José Antonio Ortega Sánchez, president of the Citizen Council, said that the task of international group of experts concluded this month and no longer brings new elements to the investigation into the disappearance of the 43 teaching students from Ayotzinapa.
“The group of experts is not looking for the truth, if the conclusions of the experts arrive at are not what they want, they will challenge them. They bring an ideological political agenda that does not seeks truth, nor justice and they no longer contribute much to this investigation. It seems to me that once the period is finished to go away,” he said.
Ortega Sánchez noted that research carried out by the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) is at an advanced stage, “There are 120 people who are being brought to trial, we must see if those responsible are punished in an exemplary manner, to avoid repetition.”
He said that he expected new results of genetics studies at the University of Innsbruck in Austria to be disclosed to give clarity to the case.
Regarding the lawsuit filed for alleged fraud committed against the Mexican government by the executive secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) Emilio Álvarez Icaza Longoria, he noted that it is in the process of ratification.
