Most Prisons in Mexico Didn’t Pass Assessment by National Human Rights Commission

Can Mexico’s lawless prisons be reformed? (El Daily Post)

The Judicial System is comprised of several bodies. Currently, there are deficiencies in the phases of investigation, prevention, and rehabilitation, which is why the system isn't working as it should and represents an inefficient means to achieve law enforcement.

The implementation of a new model in 2016 has the objective of providing scientific grounds to charges and of making the investigation phase the main focus of justice, yet progress isn't being achieved smoothly.

Crime prevention – vital in fighting crime – wasn't allocated a federal budget for this 2017.

Most local prisons in Mexico didn't pass the assessment made by the National Human Rights Commission.

The Justice System, in short, has many weak spots. An adequate rule of Law will remain a goal beyond our reach as long as all its bodies don't work accordingly.

This time the prisons exposed were the ones in the State of Mexico, which join the list already including Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, Durango, and Guerrero.
