Members of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI for its Spanish acronym) of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) presented a report about their second visit to Mexico to investigate the disappearance of the 43 teachers in training of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, on September 26 last year.

In its report, the group suggested to the Attorney General’s Office (PGR) opening new lines of investigation and expanding the existing ones, taking statements, analyzing the photographic, video and documentary evidence and completing the official information on what happened on the night of September 26 and the morning of September 27.

Carlos Beristain and Francis Fox, members of the group, noted that the investigation is difficult because the events happened in one place but there are detainees in another place and the case is being followed up in yet another state. They added that they will interview the members of the 27th Army Battalion, but they have not been given a date yet.

The group also suggested that the families of the victims participate in their search.

Their next visit will be on May 1.
