In order to follow up on this effort, it is necessary that laws and institutions help personal efforts at all levels and fields regarding the issue, he added.The Segob hopes that the launching of the program, which is carefully designed to meet its planned objectives, will represent a breakthrough in human rights.“Torture in itself is a factor which breeds violence, not something that provides security. In addition, an investigation based on torture has no legal value and does not guarantee getting to the truth,” said Campa Cifrián.That is why the orders from President Enrique Peña Nieto to Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, head of the Segob, is to prioritize this issue in the human rights policy.[caption id="attachment_13258" align="alignnone" width="678"]60331086.
