(ANSA) - MEXICO CITY, AUGUST 19 - The Mexican Commission for Truth and Access to Justice in the case of the disappearance in 2014 of 43 students of Ayotzinapa, of whom there have been no more traces, has prepared a report which, preliminary, argues that young people were killed in what is called a 'state crime', of which local and federal authorities in Mexico were also accomplices, along with organized crime groups.


    After a meeting with the relatives of the students with the President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, reports today the newspaper Excelsior, "the Undersecretary for Human Rights and President of the Commission for Truth, Alejandro Encinas, spoke of an important progress in the investigation, and confirmed the existence sufficient evidence for the Public Prosecutor's Office (FGR) to prosecute 51 people, including 10 federal officials from the former government administration, not including the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto.


    The Commission's belief is that the disappearance of the 43 students from the school of Isidro Burgos on the night between 26 and 27 September 2014 constitutes "a state crime in which members of the criminal group Guerreros Unidos and agents of various institutions of the Mexican state were implicated".


    Furthermore, it is believed that "Mexican state and federal authorities at various levels have worked to alter existing facts and evidence to push the matter towards a conclusion different from the truth of the facts".


    Finally, Encinas acknowledged that the meeting with the young parents was "difficult and painful" because it was officially confirmed that there is no indication that they are still alive ". (ANSA).
