An investigative report by the Mexican media outlet has allegedly uncovered new evidence in the case of the 43 massacred students. It claims that the Federal Police was directly involved in the attack, contrary to the authorities’ statements.
The investigation conducted with help from the Investigative Reporting Program of UC Berkeley and published in Proceso magazine claims that state and federal authorities were tracking the students’ movements on September 26 in real-time, and did nothing to prevent their abduction and consequent murder. In fact, police directly attacked the youths, the report claims.
The Proceso probe, so far unconfirmed, is based on documents from an initial state-level investigation before it was taken over by the Feds in October. The student’s movements were allegedly tracked by a government information command post – known as a C4, Control, Command, Communications and Computer Center. Reporters Anabel Hernandez and Steve Fisher also reviewed hundreds of government documents that they say indicate federal police were in Iguala and allegedly shot at the students.
