What We're Reading: Broken Justice in Mexico's Guerrero State
POSTED ON SEP 9, 2015

In Mexico's mountainous southwesterly state of Guerrero, the uncovering of one clandestine grave after another reveals a failed state where atrocities - extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances and torture - are uninvestigated and unpunished. A new report by the Open Society Justice Initiative, in partnership with the Center for Human Rights Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez and the Center for Human Rights of the Mountain Tlachinollan) examines Guerrero's broken criminal justice system and offers analysis on how the incoming governor can address the scale and nature of this injustice crisis. This report shows why we must continue to support local partners such as Tlachinollan in their struggle to ensure that all perpetrators of human rights abuses are brought to justice.
