Mexico: the family of the missing “closed” prosecutor’s office

MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – Relatives of those who went missing in Mexico blocked the headquarters of the attorney general’s office on Saturday afternoon and put up signs with the slogan “Shut down” to demand the creation of the National Bank of Forensic Data, which is to be named. will help. Thousands of remains of unknown persons distributed in tombs and morgues in the country.

Shouting “Identification Now”, dozens of family members reminded officials that, as established by law, such a database should already be working and yet it does not exist.

According to federal government figures, more than 100,000 have gone missing in Mexico, 98% of them since 2006, when the frontal war against the cartel began. In addition, with 52,000 unidentified dead spread across the country, there is an urgent forensic crisis that is still pending resolution.

According to a statement read by relatives on Saturday, the federal prosecutor’s office “has failed to fulfill its obligation to concentrate the nation’s forensic information, as it contains the genetic information of only 15,000 bodies.” The rest either contain no information or have been disseminated by the offices of the Attorney Generals of 32 states.

During the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the National Search Commission was started and with the support of the United Nations a temporary and independent entity was created, with which it is hoped that the specialist work pending for years will be accelerated.

But the exchange of information is basic and requires cooperation between states that do not exist, as the federal government itself has recognized.

However, the United Nations condemned this year that one of the country’s main problems continues to disappear because of widespread impunity.
