The Senate United Commissions of Governance, Justice and Human Rights unanimously approved the creation of The Law of Forced Disappearances.

The mandate was approved after several months of discussions with search groups, international bodies, federal officials and legislators and talks about a 20 to 60 year sentence for offenders.

This new law would include the creation of the National Search Commission, alongside a district attorney specialized in investigation and prosecution of forced disappearances.

There would also be a National Registry of Mass Graves, that would include both common and clandestine graves.
