The disappearance of 43 Mexican students is still not fully resolved after almost six years.
Mexico's Attorney General Alejandro Gertz issued 46 arrest warrants against municipal officials for their participation in the disappearance of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa, the State of Guerrero, on September 26, 2014.
"The Attorney General's Office imputes to 46 officials from various Guerrero municipalities the crimes of forced disappearance and organized crime," local outlet La Jornada reported and explained that the Office of the Attorney General had neither investigated nor prosecuted certain events when this case's proceedings were carried out between 2014 and 2018.
Gertz also ordered the capture of the former director of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC), Tomas Zeron, who was in charge of this case during President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration (2012-2018).
According to local outlets, however, he reportedly fled to Canada in March, escaping accusations of torture, disappearance of people, and obstruction of justice against him.
