Human Rights Watch’s Americas division said that, despite the extreme gravity of the cases, the government has shown paralysis, slowness, negligence, improvisation, obstruction of justice and cover-up.
The cases of Iguala and Tlatlaya should embarrass Mexican authorities, said José Miguel Vivanco, director of Human Rights Watch’s Americas division.
Vivanco said that, despite the extreme gravity of the cases, the government has shown paralysis, slowness, negligence, improvisation, obstruction of justice and cover-up.
At a press conference, Vivanco said that President Enrique Peña Nieto’s reaction has been slow and bad, so “the image of his government is in tatters.”
He added that what happened in Iguala is a symptom of a deep crisis in Mexico’s human rights and public safety record that the government has refused to face with because it is more concerned about its image.
Vivanco explained that impunity is one of the roots of the current situation, because no one has been held responsible for the forced disappearances in the country and added that police forces had “license to kill and kidnap” in Iguala.
The HRW team came to Mexico to document both cases and meet with authorities, relatives of the victims and NGO’s.
