Experts searching for forty-three students who disappeared in 2014 will end work in April

Government officials in Mexico said that international panel of experts searching for the whereabouts of the forty-three students who disappeared in 2014 will cease work in the country by late April.

 

Forty-three student teachers went missing from the Mexican city of Iguala in 2014 causing international attention on the human rights abuses in Mexico.

 

The government claimed that the students were detained by corrupt local police working for a drug cartel and later handed over to be burned at a local dump, ground up, and their remains tossed in a river.  A 2015 report by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights conducted by investigators from  four different countries completely rejected these claims by the Mexican government.

 

On Tuesday, Deputy Interior Minister Roberto Campa told reporters that the experts time in Mexico would come to a close by the end of April adding that Mexican institutions should conclude the investigation and the search.
