Agents shoot at him 29 times while riding in his car in Monterrey, NL, and state that was in the midst of persecution, says

The National Commission on Human Rights of Mexico (CNDH ombudsman) today accused a group of policemen in the northern state of Nuevo Leon of killing a civilian and alter the scene of the murder to criminalize it.

The agency, which did not provide the identities of the suspects or the victim, said in a statement that investigated the case of a young professional who was killed “by members of the Public Security Secretariat of Nuevo Leon” last April 18, in Valle Las Brisas neighborhood of the city of Monterrey.

“In addition to fire on multiple occasions (29 in total), the officers allegedly responsible falsified the facts to ensure that the victim’s vehicle was in the midst of a pursuit,” said the unit.

The young man was driving his truck to work when the incident occurred, and some security cameras in the area revealed that the police lied in saying that they were in the midst of persecution, according to the CNDH.

Additionally, the police “do not preserve the scene and altered the facts to be placed inside of the truck a gun and shell casings that were lying on the sidewalk (pavement) and belonged to the deceased,” said the NHRC.

According to the advocacy, the officers violated human rights to life, honor, legality, legal certainty and access to justice for the victim.

In this sense, the agents found guilty of kidnapping, arbitrary use of public force, altering the crime scene and preservation “irregular” evidence.

The commission, whose decisions are not binding, issued a recommendation to the government of Nuevo Leon, in which he calls “repair the damage to the family of the victim and collaborate fully in the administrative investigation.”

He also requested to publish and distribute a standard governing the proportionate use of public force, and design a training program in human rights for middle managers and operatives.

Finally, the Executive asked the Mexican state spreading “in the newspapers of national circulation clarification of the incident”, which should recognize “the moral quality of the deceased.”

Several NGOs and international organizations have repeatedly denounced that as a result of the fight against organized crime that leads the federal government in Mexico have increased cases of human rights violations committed by security forces.
