25 years after the dissappearance of Lieutenant Miguel Orlando Muñoz, case still unpunished: CMDPDH

Translated by El Profe for Borderland Beat from Aristegui Noticias

 
Twenty-five years after the disappearance of Lieutenant Miguel Orlando Muñoz, the case remains unpunished, as the Attorney General's Office (PGR) has not wanted to investigate, affirms José Antonio Guevara, executive director of the Mexican Commission for the Defense and Promotion of Human Rights (CMDPDH).

In an interview for #AristeguiEnvivo, he recalled that despite twelve years since the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) issued a report that "it is found that Miguel Orlando was disappeared and the last time he was seen was in the 26th Infantry Battalion, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua," the case remains unpunished. 

"He had coincidentally informed and informed his family and his colleagues that his superiors had links with crime, and coincidentally the last time he was seen was in the military barracks. Since then the case has been a mess as normal when prosecutors investigate cases of enforced disappearance of persons, military jurisdiction conducted a proceeding in absentia, evidence was destroyed.

"For at least four years we have seen how the PGR and the State Attorney of Chihuahua pass the ball. Neither of them assumes jurisdiction over the case and they throw them at each other, and what we have is a state of absolute impunity where neither of the two institutions has wanted to investigate," he explained.

However, he considers the PGR the ones who should investigate the forced disappearance, since the last time the lieutenant was seen was in a military barracks; "The investigation should point to the those in command that he denounced had links to crime."

"The Office of the Attorney General of Chihuahua does not have jurisdiction to hear of the disappearance of a federal public servant, who was last seen was in a purely federal facility," he added.

  1. Passing the ball is common theme with investigations pertaining government officials. Doubt that anyone would come forward with details. Moreover, those responsible!
    Heartbreaking for families and the thousands of victims for whom have been impacted by such actions.
    Jurisdiction will remain a focal point with no response now nor in the future. Unless government officials pin this on a poor innocent individual.
    Now that is Mexico’s government working for you. Rather themselves!

  6. I had an older friend that was a federal police in Mx City. He said the way they got rid of their own is by beating, torturing and throwing them from a helicopter into the sea.

    1. It is a long trip from chihuahua to the sea.
      --general Luis Montiel Lopez former chief of the "Brigada Blanca" is accused on the link to Aristegui Noticias.
      --captain Jose de Jesus Morales Garcia is said to have had "differences" with Lieutenant Miguel Orlando Muñoz Guzman who reported the situation to general Montel Lopez WHO ORDERED THE DISAPPEARANCE of Lt. GUZMAN,
      typical Mexican Army Big Wig behaviour, military zone commanders love nothing more than enhancements to supplement their check from the military and every man is supposed to do their patriotic part for the queen bees.
      --The military cap used to be one floor only, not this exaggerated two floor twat cap more proper of a Banana Republic, I guess it comes with the fascist territory.
      --Brigada Blanca used to be the Batallón Olimpico Militar formed by federal police, military and street tugs that participated with HONORS in the Tlateloco Massacre Oct 2 1968 one month before MEXICO 68 Olympiad the 43 Ayotzinapos were going to march about...one more crime prevented by the Mexican government and its armies.

    3. @ Phelpso
      A tactic used by many to install fear to those who oppose. Added with the impunity government gives. Moreover, the backlog of investigations and shortage of policemen.to arrest anyone.

    1. It must be a terrible feeling for those soldiers that join and really do want a difference those that do want to be part of the end of these criminals and bring justice to mexico and once in there being under the leadership of someone ties to the narcos who makes their soldiers or cops do the job for narcos and have no one to turn to because the whole chain of command is involved and have no choice but be part of the guys you wanted to end in the first place the reason why you trained studies bled wear the uniform and or badge

    2. Same principles are being applied here in the US with law enforcement whistle blowers. But without the helicopter ride.
      A code of silence which one must turn a blind eye to ethical practices / conduct among fellow policemen.

    3. 4:07 the protocols of reporting crimes in the military do not involve cooperation to help yourself get some leniency for your own crimes, so, for Lt Guzman to disappear from the military base after reporting crimes by their brothers at arms.
      Snitches also help put bitches in jail, so leave them alone.

    4. And what if he found himself in the position where he felt he had nothing left to lose but his life... Maybe he was pressured to snitch or couldn't continue as things were... Even then, I agree though, snitching is never good, whatever the situation. Heed my words, wannabe snitches... Nobody likes a smart Alec or a know it all snitch. Nobody. Irrespective of whether or not the snitch is doing the right thing. Everyone turns on a rat eventually.

    5. 8:52 derogatory statements about ethical persons with better morals than others, calling them rats or snitches makes sure we see where it comes from, that is why there is unbridled corruption even IN THE US MILITARY, INTELLIGENCE SERVICES, AND UP TO THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT.
      --on this case, Lieutenant Miguel Orlando Muñoz Guevara made on mistake, he trusted his commander, a corrupt general the mexican government protects, that why you get OUT OF IT before reporting anonymously, in the Mexican army you only make progress by being capable and proven to be corrupt, but that is "the mexican authorities" that do as told and the US government supports behind the backs of the real US people.

  11. “Escucha y calla”. Esto se dice mucho por todo Mexico. Tienes que saber dónde y cuándo vas a hablar. Y con quien. Aun así te la rifas mucho platicando lo que muchos no quieren escuchar. El miedo se utiliza para aterrorizar y manipular a muchísima gente por todo el pais. -Sol Prendido

  12. In 1993 Amado Carrilo and the Juarez Cartel were rolling. The military was a huge part of their organization and the Generals were getting rich. What he did would be like one of Donald Trumps interns going to General Kelly and saying he knows about some obstruction. They burried him in the desert.
