Mexico’s government transparency agency says the army that it must perform an exhaustive search and make public any communications with officials in the United States regarding the disappearance of 43 students in September 2014.
The National Transparency Institute issued a statement Sunday saying the army had not thoroughly searched all of its entities in response to a public records request.
On September 26, 2014, 43 students from a rural teachers’ college disappeared in the southern state of Guerrero. Six other people were killed. The government said the students were taken by local police and turned over to a drug cartel, which killed them and incinerated their bodies.
A group of international experts found the army monitored the situation closely. The army refused to allow international investigators to interview its soldiers.
