By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the United Nations Committee on Enforced Disappearances raised concerns over what it called an inadequate investigation of the “alarming” number of disappearances in Mexico, its consequential low convictions, and “almost absolute impunity”.
According to Reuters, data from Mexico shows that 111,896 people are registered as missing.
The number doesn’t include the many more people who went missing and were later found dead.
In addition, analysts believe that numbers are much higher since some families do not report disappearances – either for fear of reprisals or because they doubt the ability of the authorities to assist.
The U.N. committee also urged the Mexican government to ensure transparency of the methodology used to update the database.
