Mexico Promises New Prosecutor for Missing People

President Pena Nieto has said he would create a new prosecutor to look into the thousands of missing Mexicans. His announcement came after a meeting with the families of 43 students who went missing last year.
“The case is not closed,” Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto told families gathered for a meeting with him on Thursday as he announced the creation of a new prosecutor’s office especially for Mexico’s missing persons. The country’s chief prosecutor would also create a team of forensic experts to reexamine evidence and the crime scenes, DW reported.
“We are on the same side,” the president said. “You and I are looking for the same thing.”
However, he stopped short of announcing a new probe into the existing investigation of the 43 students who went missing last year.
Earlier on Thursday, families of the missing students had presented eight demands to the government. Pena Nieto had instructed his ministers to analyze and publically reply to the demands, presidential spokesman Eduardo Sanchez told journalists.
The families’ demands include establishing an internationally supervised investigation of the students’ disappearances and an investigation into officials who undertook the first enquiry.
