“(A) National Tragedy”: 25,821 missing persons in Mexico

“(A) National Tragedy”: 25,821 missing persons in Mexico Until March 2015 in Mexico 25,821 “non-located” (“no localizadas”) persons were officially listed in the National Data Register of Missing and Disappeared Persons (Registro Nacional de Datos de Personas Extraviadas o Desaparecidas, Rndep) of the National Public Security System (Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública), of which 10,836 vanished in the time being of the current government. The remaining part, i.e. the majority dates back to the administration of Felipe Calderón. Regarding its methodology the governmental data base could hide hundreds of disappearances, points out a civil organization. This reality constitutes “a national tragedy”, considers Santiago Corcuera, member of the Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED) of the United Nations (UN).
