Mexico: "Disappearances" : an ongoing crime.
This report looks at the "disappearances" that have been reported since December 2000 and considers the legal, institutional and political factors that facilitate the practice and that impede truth and justice. It describes steps being taken to investigate past "disappearances"and considers the main obstacles the authorities must address if all those responsible are to be brought to account. The report also contains a list of recommendations for the prevention of "disappearances" and recommendations Amnesty International believes must be implemented if the new office of the Special Prosecutor (Fiscalía Especial) is to be effective in dismantling the mechanisms of impunity that for nearly thirty years have allowed those responsible to evade justice.
