The search for the missing teachers in training will continue, as well as the help of the South American forensic experts, according to the relatives’ spokesperson.
The report from Argentinean forensic experts, stating that none of the human remains found in mass graves in the area of Iguala match the teachers in training missing for more than 40 days in Guerrero brings new hope to their parents, according to their spokesperson, Felipe de la Cruz.

“The meeting with the Argentinean experts was going to mean the truth for us. We had a meeting with them and they told us that none of the bodies in the previously found graves belongs to the students. This gives us hope that they are still alive,” expressed De la Cruz, after a meeting with the heads of Mexico’s Interior Ministry, the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) and the National Security Council at Iguala’s heliport.

 

De la Cruz, father of one of the survivors of the attack against the students, expressed that they still have to get the results from the analysis of the DNA samples sent by the Argentinean Team of Forensic Anthropology (EAAF) to Austria.

Meanwhile, lawyer Vidulfo Rosales, from the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center of the Mountain, informed that an agreement was reached with federal authorities to continue the search for the students.

He added that a joint commission headed by Tomás Zerón, director of the Criminal Investigation Agency, and Federal Police Commissioner Enrique Cevallos, will be created in order to follow up on the investigations.

 

Also, Rosales pointed out that Mexico will agree to have a technical team of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission to aid in the search of the students, as well as having the EAAF continue its investigations in the area of Cocula, where the PGR found charred human remains, presumably those of the students, according the declarations of some detainees.
