The executive secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, who has been accused of misappropriation of funds related to the Ayotzinapa probe, slammed Mexico’s decision to launch a preliminary inquiry into the matter.
“Not in (Alberto) Fujimori’s Peru nor in (Hugo) Chavez’s Venezuela. There’s no precedent for a preliminary inquiry of the executive secretary of the IACHR. Mexico is falling into an authoritarian regression,” Emilio Alvarez Icaza said at a press conference Wednesday to discuss the next period of sessions of the commission, an autonomous organ of the Washington-based Organization of American States.
The official was referring to the Mexican government’s response to a criminal complaint filed against him two weeks ago by the president of the Citizen Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice non-governmental organization, Jose Antonio Ortega Sanchez.
