Eight years after the disappearance of 43 student teachers in Guerrero, relatives and friends still seek justice. The main perpetrators remain in impunity in a case that the Tlachinollan Human Rights Center describes as a “shipwreck” in its 28th report.
Eight years have passed since the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa. There has been neither truth nor justice for the parents of the 43 in that time. In the following article, La Montaña Tlachinollan Human Rights Center gives its analysis of the latest report from the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (IGIE) and the current status of the investigation.

Following the report last month from the Commission for Access to Truth and Justice in the Ayotzinapa case, the arrest of former Attorney General Murillo Karam, and the arrest warrants issued for dozens of military personnel, the parents of the 43 disappeared students are witnessing backtracking from positions of power, in particular the protection of the military. The victims’ families demand to know why.
