The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights will appoint a group of experts to investigate forced disappearances in Mexico.
Emilio Álvarez Icaza, executive secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), said that the group of experts that will work with Mexico’s government to investigate forced disappearances in the country, including the 43 teachers in training of Ayotzinapa, will be appointed in the next weeks.
“In the next few weeks it will be announced who will be part of the group and when will it begin to work,” Álvarez Icaza said in an interview with Televisa’s Primero Noticias.
The work group is also expected to “help Mexico develop institutional capabilities to address forced disappearances, which is a serious issue,” Icaza explained.
In an interview with Mexico City Newspaper EL UNIVERSAL, Ambassador Emilio Rabasa, Permanent Representative of Mexico to the Organization of American States (OAS), who attended the signing of the agreement, said that the group of experts will work on three goals.
The agreement signed yesterday between the IACHR and Mexico’s government includes the development of plans to search for missing persons, a technical analysis of the investigations to determine the indictments to be filed and a technical analysis of the attention plan for the victims of the events occurred between September 26 and 27, 2014, in the city of Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico.
This is the third time that the Commission signs such an agreement with a government. The first one was signed with Mexico to investigate the assassination of Digna Ochoa, a Mexican human rights lawyer, and the second one with the Argentinean Israeli Association (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) to investigate an attack to a synagogue in the South American country.
