MEXICO CITY — A Mexican journalist released documents Saturday from an internal affairs investigation that criticizes the government’s handling of the case of 43 missing students who prosecutors claim were incinerated by a drug gang in 2014.
The documents are from an August investigation by the internal affairs division of the Attorney General’s Office.
The documents released by Anabel Hernandez say that the arrests of about a half-dozen key suspects were illegally carried out.
Some of the suspects had their rights violated, and many “spontaneously confessed” in suspiciously similar language of participating in killing the students, burning their bodies or disposing of them remains.
