According to Reforma, based on a copy of the judgements issued by the Tamaulipas courts, enforced disappearance has been discarded in the case of the 43 trainee teachers from the Teacher Training School in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero (September 2014) given that the indications are that the youths were executed and not hidden by an authority: “the procedural records coincidentally point [to the fact] that the victims were not kept in concealment; on the contrary, they were detained, deprived of their liberty and transported to where they were summarily executed.”
Due to this, overturning the arrest warrants against 56 accused, including the former mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca, his wife, members of the Iguala and Cocula municipal police, and alleged members of “Guerreros Unidos” gang, was rejected.
On another note, two of the victims have been identified, Jhosivani Guerrero de la Cruz and Alexander Mora Venancio based on analysis of the remains found in Río San Juan, in Cocula. These identifications could eventually consign those involved for the crime of homicide.
