Representative to Mexico for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) Jan Jařab expressed his willingness to work with Mexican authorities in their efforts to discover the whereabouts of the 43 missing students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College and investigate criminal responsibility for the events.

Jařab made the statement at a meeting with parents of the missing students at the Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College in the state of Guerrero on Wednesday.

Monday, Sept. 26 will mark the second anniversary of the forced disappearances.

He said that the case of the missing students is not the only case of missing people in Mexico, and that he asked the Mexican government to prevent similar crimes from being committed in the future.

Jařab expressed optimism about the involvement of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the case, and the fact that there are new clues in the case, such as the list of 40 possible locations where the missing 43 might be.

According to the office of the UNHCR in Mexico, Jařab expressed his admiration and solidarity to the families and friends of the missing students and their struggle against forced disappearances.
