Mexico reactivates search system in the face of the tragedy of 40,000 missing people

Mexico / The Government of Mexico reinstated this week the National Search System for Missing People in the face of a tragedy which has accumulated more than 40,000 cases, 26,000 unidentified bodies in morgues and 1,300 clandestine graves.

“The Mexican state is going to dedicate itself to the search for the missing people. (…) It is a priority,” the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said.

The leader of the National Regeneration Movement recalled this tragedy is very “painful” for the country.

Along the same lines, the Secretary of the Interior, Olga Sánchez Cordero, described the disappearances as a “daily violation” of human rights.

“There are tens of thousands of people who have disappeared and it is their own families who have been searching for them for years, and the investigations are progressing slowly,” said the former magistrate of the Supreme Court.

The Undersecretary of Human Rights, Population and Migration of the Ministry of the Interior, Alejandro Encinas, put figures of this catastrophe and said the “Government inherits a historical debt of more than 40,000” disappeared, 26,000 unidentified bodies and tens of thousands of bone remains.

He pointed out this is a “reinstallation” of the system as it has already started in the last weeks of the Government of Enrique Peña Nieto last October, but, in his opinion, it was a “great simulation”.

The purpose of this system is to design and evaluate the different government bodies to harmonize the search for missing persons, with the help of civil society, international organizations and academia. (March 25, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
