In an interview with Animal Politico, the former subprocurador for human rights in the office of the Mexican Attorney General, Ricardo Garcia Cervantes, says that the declarations from the Secretary of Government, Osorio Chong, regarding the numbers of disappeared people in Mexico are false.

Garcia Cervantes was appointed to head a special office to locate the 27,000+ disappeared people… He resigned yesterday.

In the interview, he says that the government never took the effort seriously and did not provide adequate personnel or resources to do the job.

Osorio Chong said last week that thousands of the missing persons had been recovered; Garcia Cervantes says actually only about 73 had been found alive… The numbers game continues… -Molly
