The special prosecutor leading the Attorney General’s Office investigating the abduction and disappearances of 43 students in southern Mexico in 2015, has resigned.
President Andres Manual Lopez Obrador said “the resignation of Omar Gomez Treejo came one day after the families of the missing students marched on the 8th anniversary of their disappearances”.
Gomez Treejo himself appeared to have gained the trust of the families. But the Attorney General’s Office has come under fire for cancelling some 21 arrest orders for suspects, including 16 members of the military, without explanation and sensitive portions of a Truth Commission report being leaked to the press.
