Judge denies 46 apprehensions in Iguala case

The parents of the 43 normalistas hope that today at the meeting with the President they will give them an explanation.

A federal judge denied the 46 arrest warrants – requested by the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) – against public servants related to the disappearance of the 43 normalistas from Ayotzinapa, which occurred six years ago, confirmed to Excelsior Felipe de la Cruz, spokesman for the students’ parents.

On June 30, the Attorney General of the Republic, Alejandro Gertz Manero, reported that the agency under his charge had requested the federal justice for arrest warrants against public servants from various municipalities of Guerrero, accused of forced disappearance and organized crime, related to the Iguala case.

Today, starting at ten o’clock in the morning, at the National Palace, the parents of the 43 normalistas who disappeared between September 26 and 27 have a meeting scheduled with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“We were informed that the 46 orders announced by the attorney general were not being granted and we hope that tomorrow at the meeting (with the president) they will give us a more comprehensive explanation, the reasons why they were denied,” said Felipe de la Cruz via telephone on his way from Guerrero to Mexico City.

From the request made by the FGR and announced by Gertz Manero, the only thing that continues is the arrest warrant for extradition purposes against the former director of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC) Tomás Zerón de Lucio.

The same day that the Attorney General of the Republic announced the request for the 46 arrest warrants, it was when he assured that the historical truth coined by the past administration had ended.

Felipe de la Cruz, spokesman for the parents of the normalistas, considered that the detailed information on this point “I think they are saving it for tomorrow, when we see the president. We are waiting to be informed about the progress and setbacks of this investigation, “he said.

The request to De la Cruz to confirm the fact arose from what was said by the lawyer from the Tlachinollan Mountain Human Rights Center, Vidulfo Rosales, who participated in the discussion The forced disappearance in Mexico in the scene of the pandemic.

There Rosales said that in the federal judge’s refusal there were at least two problems. One that within the FGR, he said, there are officials who agree with historical truth, although he did not say who.

And the other point that Rosales referred to was the Judiciary, where, he said, he favors formalism, “there we are having problems” that the files rebound or that due to some informality the arrest warrants are denied and there is no progress in the investigations .

Félix Santana Ángeles, general director of Strategies for the Attention of Human Rights of the Ministry of the Interior and technical undersecretary of the Presidential Commission for the Iguala case, also participated in the discussion and agreed with Vidulfo Rosales in the sense of inertia within the FGR.

According to the federal official, 29 field operations have been carried out in the administration of President López Obrador to get to the truth of the case that occurred almost six years ago.
