Mexico, D.F. – During a press conference on Tuesday, Mexican federal Senators including Senator Layda Sansores from the Labor Party called for a floor debate to discuss whether the Mexican military and Federal Police were involved on September 26, 2014 in the shooting, murder and disappearance of 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa. According to more than 144 witnesses and testimony in a recently released investigative report by human rights groups, the report indicated that the military and Federal Police were involved along with corrupt city mayors including Cocula and Iguala municipal police in the state of Guerrero in the bus shootings resulting in murder, kidnapping and 43 missing students. The Green and PRI political partys have been evading a debate and are accused of a major cover up by the Enrique Peña Nieto government including Jesús Murillo Karam, the federal Mexican Attorney General (PGRF) who claims there are no witnesses or any testimony indicating that the military and Federal Police were involved, according to Sansores. Sansores said, Karam should read the report.Senator Sansores on Tuesday told the full Senate that if the Ayotzinapa case is not debated on the floor, no other issue or business will be debated until the Ayotzinapa matter is first brought to the floor for debate. The Senate was forced to postponed the session until Thursday.
The Political Coordination Committee (Jucopo) Board President Gil Zuarth responded by saying that the Jucopo will meet on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. to discuss the Ayotzinapa case and the report by the InterAmerican Commission on Human Rights and the National Commission of Human Rights about allegations that the military and Federal Police were involved in criminal activity and the disappearance of 43 missing students.
Zuarth says, the Senate on Thursday in its first order of business will take up debate about the Ayotzinapa case after being delayed by the PRI and the PVEM, the Green Party for months.
