The disappearances of people in Mexico have not stopped and the number of victims is increasing, while many of the advances that are recorded in the search and location of the more than 40,000 people in this situation is the product of the incessant and tireless work of thousands of families facing the misfortune of the disappearance of one of their loved ones, their contributions, and civil society, reported the National Commission of Human Rights (CNDH).
Today the pending subject of the Mexican State persists with the victims of disappearances and their relatives.
In view of this situation, this National Agency pointed out that this debt cannot be covered as long as the authorities do not guarantee the minimum security conditions that put an end to the environment of violence, impunity, and illegality.
"We require security, but not at any cost and not by any means, but that which corresponds to a Democratic State of Law, which is built from a bond of trust, closeness, and cooperation between authorities and society, that does not rule out justice transitional as a way to achieve the truth, reparation for the victims and effective accountability of the authorities ".
The First General Visitor, Ismael Eslava Pérez, participated in the presentation of the Comprehensive Strategy for Attention to Victims of Disappearance in the State of Jalisco, which was headed by Governor Enrique Alfaro, an act in which he demonstrated that 18 states have not established their respective Local Search Commission and 7 have not set up or put into operation their Local Commission of Attention to Victims.
There, he pointed out that for the CNDH, the lack of homogeneous ministerial investigations for the search, location, investigation, and punishment of those responsible for the disappearance of persons represents a structural problem in the area of law enforcement, particularly at the level of federal entities. that in many cases it places the aggrieved and their families in a state of abandonment and revictimization and renders their rights recognized in the General Constitution of the Republic nugatory.
Violence, insecurity, corruption, and impunity that occur in various regions of the country are conducive to and influence the disappearance of people is a scourge that despite the political will repeatedly expressed and some progress to address it, we are still far from dimensioning and adequately address.
In the ceremony held in the Tolsá Chapel of the Cabañas Museum and after recognizing that the provisions contained in said Law are not fully in force, he stressed the importance of materializing its content through the political will of the government agencies that is reflected in the professionalization of the actors responsible for its application, the existence of sufficient resources to implement its contents, so that local search committees, specialized prosecutor's offices, and expert services areas, among others, fully comply with their functions.
Before federal, local and academic authorities, as well as representatives of collectives and civil society organizations and local legislators, said that in this framework is important the Comprehensive Strategy for the Attention of Victims of Disappearance presented by the state government, based on premises fundamental as the recognition of that phenomenon as one of the most complex, painful and outrageous problems we face as a State.
Dialogue with relatives and groups of disappeared persons as the guiding axis of the actions of the different instances involved in the integral attention of this scourge; the creation of the registry of affected family members; provide human and material resources and resources to regional centers, and search, location and research activities, among others.
