It would take 120 years to identify the bodies of the disappeared in Mexico: UN

The Committee Against Enforced Disappearances (CED) of the United Nations Organization (UN) announced that “in the current conditions it would be necessary to 120 years to identify them (people), without counting the new bodies that are added every day”.

Among the findings of the visit of a UN delegation to Mexicothe CED found that there is a deep forensic crisis in the country.

According to the committee, there are currently more than 52 thousand people deceased without identifying that lie in common graves, forensic services, universities and shelter centers.


The CED specifies that “this figure, despite its magnitude, does not include the bodies that have not yet been located, nor the thousands of fragments of human remains that the families and search commissions collect weekly in the clandestine graves.”

Within the publication of their results, they found that in the states of Baja California, Mexico City, State of Mexico, Jalisco, Chihuahua, Tamaulipas and Nuevo León they concentrate 71.73 percent of the unidentified bodies.

For the committee, it is worrying that “several of the instruments provided for in the General Law (General Law on Forced Disappearance of Persons) have not yet been established and there is no public policy on human identification in relation to the disappearance of persons.

During November of last year, a delegation from the CED visited the country to assess the actions being taken to punish and prevent forced disappearances. This Tuesday they presented the results.
