Re “Criminal Cases in Graft Scandal Stifled in Mexico” (front page, June 11):
It comes as no surprise that although Mexico’s government has evidence to charge officials connected to one of the biggest corruption scandals in Latin American history, it is refusing to bring charges because they might hurt the governing party ahead of presidential elections. That’s the way things have worked in Mexico for decades.
What’s new is the growing power and determination of civil society to document abuses and push for change.
Last month, my organization joined with eight Mexican NGOs to reveal widespread collusion between public officials and drug cartels, resulting in massacres, forced disappearances, torture and other brutal violence.
