Mexico: "Disappearances": a black hole in the protection of human rights
AI has documented an increase in the number of cases of "disappearance" in Mexico reported over the last four years, most cases showing evidence of official participation. Most of the latest cases occurred in the context of alleged counter-insurgency or anti-narcotics operations, victims include members of peasant organizations, indigenous people, students and teachers. In most cases those responsible have not been brought to justice. AI calls on the Mexican government to take action to ensue a halt to "disappearances".
