AMLO calls to keep Marisela Escobedo’s case open

After the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) gave the Mexican State a period of three months to send its observations on the case of Marisela Escobedo, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called for the investigation into the activist to remain open, who after two years of denouncing the femicide of her daughter Rubí Marisol Frayre Escobedo, was murdered on December 16, 2010 in front of the Government Palace of Chihuahua.

At a press conference, López Obrador asked that Alejandro Encinas, undersecretary of Human Rights, take charge of this case and to report on the situation you are in.

“In all cases there is attention and the Ministry of the Interior, and in particular Alejandro Encinas, is in charge of this matter and others. And we are going to ask you to inform us how this investigation is going, where it was and it should not stop, the investigation must remain open.

“I do remember very well about this vile, heinous murder in the Chihuahua square, in front of the Government Palace, and we are going to ask Alejandro Encinas to inform us about this,” he added.
