“This mechanism will be coordinated by the special envoy for Mexico, Mr. James Cavallaro; other agreements are that they will be able to make with this mechanism periodic visits to our country,” Rosales said.

During a meeting that will be held May 21 in Washington, D.C., with the CIDH, representatives for the Mexican government, and the Ayotzinapa parents, an agreement will be made on the total number of members and the frequency of visits.

The director of the Center for Human Rights, Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, said the Ruiz Massieu said to continue the search for the missing “normalistas.”

Lawyer Rosales said they are awaiting the results of studies of the remains found in a grave in Iguala, allegedly related to the Ayotzinapa case.

Relatives of the Ayotzinapa students reiterated their demand to renounce Tomás Zerón, director of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC), indicated by the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) as allegedly planting evidence.
