Independent Panel Finds Mexican Military Knew About Attack on Ayotzinapa Students

HeadlineMar 29, 2022

A new independent report into the 2014 disappearance of the 43 Ayotzinapa students says Mexico’s Navy and Army officials had been surveilling the students and knew they were going to be kidnapped. The report also found officials hid evidence that could have helped locate the students. This is a member of the independent panel.

Claudia Paz y Paz: “It was known by the authorities in Iguala, but also by authorities at the national level, what was happening at the time of the detention and subsequent disappearance of the students.”
