Almost 40 months after the disappearance of the 43 student teachers, the execution of six and two seriously wounded, the mothers, fathers, students of Ayotzinapa, organizations and collectives started a new Day of Struggle for Truth and Justice from January 17th to 27th, over the events which took place on September 26th and 27th, 2014 in Iguala. Part of this demands the Superior Court of Justice of the State (TSJ) to deliver the videos of Iguala Courthouse to know what happened on September 26th, 2014 at the Chipote bridge.
According to the Tlachinollan Mountain Human Rights Center “at least six closed-circuit cameras with a wide range of vision could have captured what happened. However, when the videos of those hours were requested by the GIEI and the PGR, Tribunal staff informed them that they did not have the recordings as they were handed over to and lost by the then President of the Superior Court of Justice Lambertina Galeana Marin.”
Fathers and mothers of the students demanded a thorough investigation and jail for Lambertina Galeana Marin. For its part, the current Chief Justice of the Superior Court of Justice, Alberto Lopez Celis, promised to trace the chain that followed the videos made at the Courthouse in Iguala and will initiate an internal procedure of responsibility for the loss of the videos if it were the case. In the same way, he promised that in 10 days he will meet the fathers and mothers of the 43 to give answers to the proposals made in the meeting.
