An alliance of civil organizations demanded that the State Congress issue a new call to occupy the ownership of the State Search Commission and thus allow to have a person with the ideal profile in the development of the tasks provided for in the Law.
Minerva Nora Martínez Lázaro, general coordinator of the Bartolomé Carrasco Briseño Regional Center for Human Rights (Barca-DH) stressed that there is a delay of two years, by the Legislative and Executive powers of the State, which resulted in the federal budget allocated in this area to Oaxaca not being made effective and had to return.
He stressed that the call issued by the local Congress to receive candidacies for the State Search Commission was closed on October 5, after a hasty process and little dissemination.
“The process is stagnant, from 2018 to date, because so far the list of candidates is unknown and if there is any progress in the appointment of the head of this important instance,” he said.
For this reason, he urged the State Congress to restore the process, contemplating enough time and publicity, in accordance with the General Law on Forced Disappearance of Persons, Disappearance committed by Individuals and the National System for the Search of Persons and the Law on the matter. of disappearance of persons for the State of Oaxaca.
The activist mentioned that the profile of the owner must respond to the attributions established in the laws, among this, experience in the search for disappeared and not located people, experience in ministerial investigation, technological systems, banks, forensics, etc., and knowledge of national, state, municipal, and regional instances in the case of migrants.
In addition, he stressed that whoever holds the title of the State Search Commission must also have dialogue and communication with civil society, victims and their families, as well as knowledge and experience in gender-based violence, a differential approach and an intercultural approach.
In this way, he stressed that, although Mexico is a signatory to various international treaties on human rights and the creation of laws on the disappearance of persons, the lag in states such as Oaxaca is alarming.
Martínez Lázaro said that in addition to not appointing the head, the State Citizen Council has not been appointed, nor the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office, nor has a budget for the search for people been guaranteed, as well as the application of various protocols and international mandates, such as the adoption of the Alba Protocol for the disappearance of girls and women.
