Mexican Judge Says Probe Into 2014 Killings Inadequate Rights Center

51

MEXICO CITY – A Mexican judge said the country’s attorney general has not “exhaustively, adequately and effectively” investigated the extrajudicial executions of 22 people allegedly committed by the military in 2014, a human rights organization said on Sunday.

The Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez Human Rights Center (Prodh) said the judge ordered the attorney general’s office to “carry out a series of proceedings to immediately clarify the case and establish responsibilities, including the chain of command involved in the illegal order to shoot” the victims.

“This lack of due diligence is one of the many forms taken by the unacceptable cover up of serious human rights violations in Mexico,” said Prodh, which represents a survivor of the shooting, Clara Gomez Gonzalez.
