Mexican gov’t launches another Ayotzinapa probe

It’s been more than two years after the 26 September 2014 abduction and disappearance of 43 students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College in the state of Guerrero [previously], and still no answers about what happened to the missing students, children of poor families in one of Mexico’s most impoverished regions.

And now the government is launching yet another investigative, this time involving some of the scientists and an international panel which had so thoroughly discredited earlier “investigations.”

From teleSUR English:

Mexico’s Attorney General Arely Gomez said Tuesday that another search for the missing students from Ayotzinapa will be launched next week in the towns of Iguala, Cocula and Guerrero, two years after they were reported disappeared during a clash with federal and local police.

The investigation will involve foreign criminologists, representatives of their relatives and members of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Authorities will use a special technology to obtain underground 3-D images, in a bid to find possible mass graves.

In a four-hour press conference, Gomez added that she will continue the investigation against her predecessor Tomas Zeron de Lucio, accused of having modified the crime scene.
