Parents of missing students issue ultimatum to Peña Nieto
Although Mexican authorities have extended the search for 43 missing students over a hundred locations, an arrested policeman stated that the students are buried in the area of Cocula, in Mexico.
LaSillaRota reported on Wednesday that after the arrest of officer Andrés Apolinar Barrera, he said that the 43 students were buried in this small town near the city of Iguala.
“Federal agents investigated and rappelled down the area. In the morning It was learned that on-site surface explorations and by the evening the area was surrounded by Marines," according to LaSillaRota.
But so far there has been no clear answer as to the whereabouts of the students missing since Sept. 26.
Today the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, will meet for the first time with the parents of the missing students. The relatives said they will give the president an ultimatum to find their children.
"We intend to demand immediate responses and the circumstances of the boys missing for more than a month without a clear response to us. We have experienced too much agony," said Felipe de Jesús de la Cruz, the spokesman for the families.
The unresolved case of the students has caused outrage inside and outside of Mexico. Today Pope Francis devoted a few words to the "Mexican people suffering for the missing students" that were heard by thousands of Catholics who gathered in St. Peter's Square.
The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), along with the Mexican Commission for the Defense and Promotion of Human Rights (CMDPDH) and the Northwest Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) will conduct an international audience on impunity for serious human rights violations in Mexico.
The three organizations have asked the International Criminal Court in The Hague (ICC) to open an investigation into possible crimes against humanity committed by the armed security forces of the Mexican State.
