They feared apparent that the students could interfere with an event the mayor’s wife, who wanted to announce this at their candidacy for the elections next year.

During the transport of Iguala to Cocula at least 15 students, according to the statements of the suspects died. They are “choked” says a hard Taken in the video.

Once at the remote dump of Cocula, the survivors had to get out with their hands up and were asked why they wanted to disrupt the event the mayor couple. Subsequently, the perpetrators forced their victims to the ground and killed them. Then they put the 43 corpses each other, piled tires and wood and doused it all with gasoline. The fire burned six hours.

The families of the victims wait for six weeks in the University in Ayotzinapa on their sons. They refuse to believe the words of the prosecutor. “We want irrefutable evidence of her death,” said Margarito Ramirez, father of a student. “As long as our guys stay alive for us.” Ramírez criticized the government sharply. “The president wanted to before his trip to China just get rid of this problem, we do not trust this government.”

The crime expert Edgardo Buscaglia expresses understanding for anger and distrust of parents. “How can a state be credible as an investigator, when he himself is perpetrators?” Asks the professor and president of the “Instituto de Accion Ciudadana” in Mexico City. Buscaglia calls for the establishment of a truth commission with independent experts. “The only way the state can regain its credibility.”

The America-Director of “Human Rights Watch” urged President Enrique Peña Nieto of the Enlightenment. “This is the test of the credibility of Mexico,” José Miguel Vivanco said. Since 2006, since the government of former President Felipe Calderon, in Mexico there was not a single conviction for the disappearance of people. “This impunity makes crimes like that of Iguala only possible”.
