President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador He said that according to the report on the Ayotzinapa Case prepared by the Truth Commission, there are 5 and not 20 soldiers allegedly related to the disappearance of the 43 normalistas from the Raúl Isidro Burgos rural normal school.
In his morning press conference, the president indicated that he will act based on the report of the commission headed by the Undersecretary for Human Rights, Alejandro Encinas.
“No one is being excluded. All those who appear in the document are going to be required by the Prosecutor’s Office. If there are others, well, too, as long as you have the evidence,” he said.
“Since there are interests in all this, they seek to destroy the investigation, speaking of more people, in the case also of the military, holding 20 responsible when the investigation is 5, of course, of a high degree. I don’t know about the other 15, but I imagine they are soldiers, but why do they include the 20 thinking that this would cause a rebellion in the Army if there were more?
López Obrador reiterated that there is pressure in the Ayotzinapa case and defended the integrity of the Army by stating that it is collaborating in the investigations.
In the armed forces they are very aware that someone who commits a crime cannot be covered up, because instead of strengthening that institution, it weakens it. And it is a fundamental institution. That is why they did wrong by not acting when the events occurred, perhaps thinking that the armed forces were being affected. The armed forces have nothing to do with the irresponsible attitude of one, two, three, five, 10 members of the Army or public servants.
“There are many interests involved, the ones I am mentioning, including alleged human rights defenders who become administrators of the conflict,” he assured.
