"We are very concerned about clarifying the Ayotzinapa case, that is our commitment because in this case, too, they did not act properly, with rectitude, they lied, and we want to know where the young people are and to know the whole truth, and I have not taken my finger off the line," the president is also known as AMLO remarked.
AMLO has pledged to resolve the Ayotzinapa case as the student's families denounced they were not given a proper response during the administration of Enrique Peña Nieto, who prevented the families from accessing the accurate reports on the case. AMLO created a commission to solve the crime formed by the Attorney General's Office (FGR), the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), and other government agencies such as the Ministry of the Interior (Segob).
