Mexico: Memorandum to the Mexican Federal Congress on reforms to the Constitution and criminal justice system

, Index number: AMR 41/032/2004

In this memorandum to members of Congress of the Union, Amnesty International sets out a number of key areas where the domestic legislative framework should be harmonised with international human rights standards. While the reform proposals presented by the executive are wide-ranging, this memorandum is confined to the consideration of three broad issues: relating international human rights standards to the Mexican Constitution; international standards in due process and fair trial in primary and secondary legislation; and public security with accountability.
