Mexico is going through a “grave human rights crisis” characterized by a grave and generalized situation of torture practices, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial executions, said James Cavallaro, Inter-American Commission for Human Rights expert for Mexico and first vice president of the IACHR.

“We received tens of testimonies regarding the situation of enforced disappearances, extrajudicial executions, very grave cases as Tlataya, Apatzingan, Tanhuato, and very serious cases of torture,” he added.

His words come almost simultaneously with the announcement by a federal judge that four of the seven Mexican troops involved in the Tlataya massacre were ordered released from jail, a decision the federal Attorney General’s office (PGR) said it would appeal the decision.

“There is no other conclusion, other than the situation in Mexico is grave. Grave crisis describes the situation the country is going through,” Cavallaro added.
