On March 17, 30 months of the disappearance of the 43 student teachers, a hearing was held within the framework of the 161st regular session of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) to monitor the investigations and search that the Mexican State is carrying out, as well as the progress of the follow-up mechanism to the recommendations of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (IGIE).

According to La Jornada newspaper, the defenders opened the hearing with critical comments on the zero progress and urged that the recent changes in the IACHR do not affect the follow-up to which that body has committed itself.

On behalf of the Mexican State, Roberto Campa Cifrian, undersecretary of Human Rights of the Ministry of the Interior, affirmed that the government of Peña Nieto continues working on the hypothesis of historical truth (declared by the State in January 2015) that the 43 student teachers were burned in the garbage dump of Cocula: “The authorities responsible for the investigation have formulated a hypothesis that has been known as the historical truth. That hypothesis presents the version of what happened, the version of who is responsible, and what was the fate of the 43 disappeared student teachers.”

Mario Patron, director of the Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez Human Rights Center, reacted, indignantly denouncing that “the conclusions of the IGIE are being rejected by the State in this moment.” It is worth noting that the IGIE investigations dismantled this historical truth with multiple proofs.

On April 20, the IACHR will visit Mexico to continue the development of the follow-up mechanism.
