Is there more corruption or incompetence
26.09.2014Disappear of 43 students in Mexico always still unexplained
43 students are on their way to a demonstration in Mexico. Then the police stop the bus and shoot. The 43 men disappear without a trace. Nobody has known what happened to them for five years.
Iguala has a little more than 100,000 inhabitants, is a few kilometers south of Mexico City and is only known for two things: The city is supposedly the home of the Mexican flag - and five years ago, on September 26, 2014, 43 students disappeared there. The latter earned Iguala notoriety. To date, the case shows that Mexico has some serious problems.
Corruption and no interest in clarification
The government at the time had no interest in clarification. The authorities abducted and veiled, they slouched a lot, says Anne-Kathrin Mellmann, our correspondent in Mexico. But 142 people were arrested. 77 of them recently had to be released. Reason: It should have procedural errors against. "Confessions were extorted under torture," said Anne-Kathrin.
"The judiciary in Mexico doesn't work. It's a mixture of incompetence, sloppiness and a lot of corruption."
The new Mexican government has made crime a top priority. Because even today, five years after the disappearance of the young men, the case is very topical. "That is a very big, sore point that people in Mexico have to face every year," says Anne-Kathrin Mellmann.
Incompetence, sloppiness, corruption
Apparently the judiciary does not work in the North American state. "It's a mixture of incompetence, sloppiness and a lot of corruption." It is now certain that the police officers have worked with the local criminal cartel.
There is a theory that the 43 students hijacked the bus. "It could be that this bus was already full of heroin, which was intended for smuggling into the USA," says Anne-Kathrin Mellmann. "You would have got in the way of the corrupt security forces and the gangs."
"Corruption is a very big problem in this country, judges as well as small police officers and investigators can be bribed."
The new government has set up a truth commission, and the parents of the missing have been given an office in the Ministry of the Interior so that they can participate in the investigation. Nevertheless: there are still no results five years after the crime.
Anne-Kathrin Mellmann says: Hardly anyone in Mexico believes that the 43 are still alive.
