Motion text

That this House expresses its disappointment that the 43 students from Ayotzinapa in Guerrero, Mexico, who disappeared on 26 September 2014, have still not been found and that no new lines of investigation have been followed despite findings from international independent experts that the assumptions of the Mexican Government's initial investigation are flawed; calls on the Mexican Government and authorities to renew their efforts in this case; notes that at least 30,000 people have been officially registered as disappeared in Mexico since 2006 and that the disappeared often include the very vulnerable, such as poor migrants, children, women, activists and journalists; highlights the concerns of Amnesty International and other bodies regarding the human rights situation in Mexico; offers its support to all those in Mexico who stand up for human rights and justice against corruption and violence; and further calls on the Government to support further work with Mexican human rights organisations.
