After stating that his party is “uncomfortable” with the “historical truth” that is the official narrative of the federal Attorney General’s Office (PGR) with respect to the Iguala case, the leader of the National Action Party (PAN), Ricardo Anaya, criticized the deadline set by the Interior Secretariat for the work of the Interdisciplinary Independent Experts’ Group (GIEI), considering that group’s presence “convenient and healthy.”

The PAN has a similar position about the presence of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on torture, Juan Méndez.

The content of one of Méndez’s official reports caused a diplomatic dispute between Mexico and the international organization. The report found that torture was a generalized practice in Mexico.

The presence of international organizations is absolutely healthy. They have helped find the truth, which the PGR could not do. That is enough of an argument to justify that they remain here.”

-Ricardo Anaya, president of the PAN’s national committee

In a press conference, Anaya said that without the presence and work of the GIEI, supported by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) and the rapporteur of the UN, “the ‘historic truth’ found by the PGR would still be generally accepted.” That “truth,” he continued “has fallen to pieces.”

The president of the conservative PAN noted that the GIEI makes the federal government “uncomfortable” and threatens the government’s story about the disppearance of 43 students at the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teaching College in Ayotzinapa, which took place in September 2014.

“The presence of international organizations is absolutely healthy. They have helped find the truth, which the PGR could not do. That is enough of an argument to justify that they remain here,” Anaya concluded.
