On Sept. 26, 2014, forty-three students were detained by corrupt police officers in Iguala and handed over to the Guerreros Unidos cartel. According to the official version of events concocted by President Enrique Peña Nieto's administration (2012-2018), the drug traffickers murdered the students, cremated them, and dumped their bodies in the Cocula dump.

Known as "the historical truth," this version has been repeatedly disproved by various researchers. The GIEI report confirmed the participation of the Mexican Armed Forces in both the murder and the concealment of information.

The expert group also revealed a video showing the participation of members of the Secretary of the Navy in the manipulation of the crime scene at the Cocula dump.

The tweet reads, "Images show how a helicopter lands in ​​the garbage dump area where they allegedly found the bodies of the Ayotzinapa students. Yes, a helicopter scattering everything in its path everywhere."

"The CNDH has ruled on several occasions regarding the inconsistencies in the official investigation that led to the so-called 'historical truth'... the actions of the authorities, including those of this commission, which at the time were entrusted with clarifying the facts, not fulfilling their responsibility as public servants," the CNDH pointed out.

Earlier this week, Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) said that authorities had already summoned several marines who participated in the operation at the Cocula dump to testify. However, he ruled out that the current Navy Secretary Jose Rafael Ojeda could be involved in the case.
