Just a story from teleSUR:

Mexico Human Rights Commission Says Ayotzinapa Case Not Closed

  • The attorney general closed the case earlier this week saying all angles have been exhausted, but rights groups and experts disagree.

The National Commission on Human Rights (CNDH) rejected a move made by Mexico’s attorney general earlier this week that declared the case of the 43 disappeared students from Ayotzinapa closed, claiming the students were all dead. The CNDH said Thursday that the case cannot be closed.

“The case is still open. We have to wait to see what the judges say, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, the results from tests sent to experts abroad. It should not be closed, you cannot speak of a conclusion and for the CNDH it remains open,” said President of the CNDH Luis Raul Gonzalez Perez.

Earlier this week, Attorney General Murillo Karam corroborated the government’s official version of the events on Sept. 26, when 43 students from a teaching school in Ayotzinapa in the state of Guerrero went missing. According to Murillo Karam, the students were kidnapped and handed over to a local drug gang, and were later killed, burned and disposed of at a dump in Cocula and in a nearby river.
