Relatives of Disappeared Women in Ciudad Juarez Continue Sit-In

Fabiola Martinez - La Jornada
go to original
June 14, 2013

Relatives of eight women who disappeared in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, are still sitting-in near the Secretariat of Government Relations [SEGOB], awaiting a response to their request for an effective investigation to find their loved ones. They regretted that they are once again encountering promises that are, "the same as they have received in months or in years past" from state and federal authorities, although there is evidence, they say, that in Chihuahua there is a network of trafficking in young girls.

They also expressed their annoyance because an official from Provictima [the agency charged with attending to victims of violence] came to the sit-in to warn them that if they did not return to Juárez on Thursday, they would lose their airplane tickets and that would affect future support.

"It goes from bad to worse. At least earlier, senior officials listened to the mothers."

Their main demand is for a meeting with President Enrique Pena Nieto, although they will desist if they receive a concrete answer and commitments.
