, Index number: AMR 41/0001/2015

The enforced disappearance of 43 students from the Ayotzinapa teachers’ training college, in September 2014, at the hands of municipal police operating in collusion with organized crime brought to international attention the on-going crisis of disappearances and impunity in Mexico. Amnesty International considers that the key issues related to enforced disappearances that the Mexican government must address are: Pervasive impunity; Lack of effective search mechanisms and resources; Lack of reparation for victims; Lack of political will from the highest federal and state authorities to deliver these and other important outcomes.
