The Foreign Relations Secretariat and parents of the missing 43 Ayotzinapa teaching students agreed to establish a special monitoring mechanism for the Iguala case, and that the families’ proposal would be headed by James Cavallaro, President of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) and special envoy for Mexico.
After two hours meeting privately with Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Vidulfo Rosales, lawyer for the parents of 43, said it will be decided if if the monitoring mechanism will include two members of the group of experts.
“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.
