The members of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) released a statement where they said that they will present the results of their second report on the Iguala case to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) Friday.

At a news conference, the five GIEI members said that the action relates to their obligation to deliver results to the Mexican authorities, because their investigation will end on April 30.

“The relationship we had with the Mexican authorities was one of cordial collaboration since the beginning of our investigation. That continues even now, after the government informed us that it would probably not assist to the presentation of the report last Sunday,” said Carlos Beristain.

The aim is to explain the contents of the report to the authorities, said Beristain. “Once the report is published, we will probably conduct meetings with the government regarding the investigation, the research and the care of victims,” he added.

The GIEI had a meeting with officials from the Executive Committee for Victims (CEAV) and the Interior Secretariat (Segob), in order to provide them with the criteria found in the report.

In that regard, Beristain hopes that the report can become a tool of transformation of the public policies regarding victims. Now that the results of the report will be presented to the PGR, the members of the GIEI also want it to have an impact on institutions, he added.
