Parents of the 43 get the Army not to destroy documents from the Ayotzinapa case

MEXICO CITY ( parents of the 43 normal students from Ayotzinapa obtained an injunction that prohibits the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) from “destroying, purifying, eliminating, hiding or concealing” intelligence information regarding the forced disappearance of the students, which he has refused to hand over to the investigators of the case and the members of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI).

Despite this achievement in the judicial field, the parents and their lawyers from the Agustín Pro Juárez Human Rights Center (Centro ProDH) continue to request an appointment with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to “dialogue” about the clarification of the case, which continues being a pending debt of the president, five years after his inauguration.

The parents went to court following the publication of the sixth and last GIEI report, which indicated that the Sedena had arbitrarily hidden an indeterminate number of reports prepared in its Regional Intelligence Fusion Centers (Cerfis), despite the fact that these could help determine the whereabouts of students.

Based on the GIEI report, the parents alleged in court that, by obstructing access to information, Sedena failed to comply with a presidential decree that López Obrador signed on December 4, 2018 – on his third day in office – , through which the president ordered all government agencies to collaborate in the investigation of the Ayotzinapa case.
