Mexico re-establishes the National Search System for Missing People
The objective of re-establishing the Mexico National Person Search System is to coordinate the different government bodies so that the search for missing persons is optimal and has the help of civil society and international organizations.
The Government of Mexico announced the reinstatement of the National Search System for Missing Persons after it was announced that there are almost 40,000 cases of missing persons in Mexico, including thousands of migrants.
In a morning speech last Sunday, the president spoke about his plan to reestablish the National System of People Search:
"We will support family members to find the disappeared. We want them alive, that is the desire."
The objective of the system is to coordinate the different government bodies so that the search for missing persons is optimal and has the help of civil society and international organizations.
There are currently 26,000 bodies of unidentified migrants in morgues and 1,300 clandestine graves.
"The Mexican State is going to dedicate itself to the search for the disappeared," assured the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
The president said that the current government is going to get rid of all kinds of luxuries to be able to occupy the money that was previously used in luxuries, to find the disappeared:
"We must identify the 26,000 bodies that are in forensic facilities. That is urgent, we have to resolve it as soon as possible."
Among the proposals of the president, it is suggested the creation of a forensic system that allows identifying the more than 26,000 bodies that are piled up in morgues and assured that the necessary budget has already been authorized.
