Amnesty International is calling on the Mexican government to specify what measures it will take to comply with the recommendations on Mexico of the Working Group of Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances presented to the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday.
The Working Group’s report highlights the terrible dimensions of this grave violation of human rights in Mexico and the lack of a government policy designed to prevent and punish this crime.
Organizations of relatives of disappeared persons and the National Human Rights Commission have reported the disappearance of thousands of people. The majority of these reports have not been adequately investigated, which has prevented determining whether public officials are involved. This is crucial as the involvement of public officials determines whether it is a crime of enforced disappearance, for which the State is responsible.
