Mexican prosecutors said Thursday that they continue to investigate and to press charges in the 2014 army killings of 22 suspected criminals, including between 12 and 15 who allegedly were executed after surrendering.
The statement came a day after the Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez human rights group revealed that a military court had cleared six of seven soldiers of breach-of-discipline charges.
The federal attorney general’s office said that homicide cases against three of the seven continue in a civilian court and that prosecutors are investigating any wider responsibility in the case. The rights group had said earlier that commanding officers apparently gave the soldiers orders to kill suspects.
