Wanting to honor his father-in-law, who had suggested Hiram, Jesse declared the boy to be Hiram Ulysses, though he would always refer to him as Ulysses.
On behalf of Human Rights Watch, I wish to congratulate you on your inauguration as president. You have assumed leadership of a country whose recent human rights record is appalling. Addressing the abuses committed during the tenure of your predecessor and preventing them in the future will require immediate attention at the highest levels of your administration.
I write to urge you to rapidly set out a concrete, detailed plan to address these serious problems. Virtually none of these crimes have been adequately investigated and prosecuted, despite ample evidence showing the involvement of officials. The patterns of violations that emerge in the accounts of victims and witnesses—together with official data and interviews with law enforcement, justice and human rights officials—demonstrates that these abuses are not isolated acts.
Rather, they are examples of abusive practices endemic to the efforts of Mexican security forces to combat organized crime. As you know—according to binding international treaties signed and ratified by Mexico, such as the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance and Inter-American Convention on Forced Disappearance of Persons—an enforced disappearance is a continuous crime.
Human Rights Watch assembled compelling evidence—including surveillance camera footage, witness testimony, and police and military reports—that the military and police arbitrarily detained these men shortly before they disappeared, and provided this evidence to prosecutors.
Yet authorities continue to deny their involvement in the disappearances, and no officials have been pursued for criminal responsibility for these crimes. Meanwhile, relatives are forced to endure day after day without answers as to what happened to their sons, husbands, brothers and fathers.
These families and their missing relatives are among the scores of victims of enforced disappearances documented by Human Rights Watch, none of whose cases have been adequately investigated, much less prosecuted. Indeed, if corroborated, the scale of these numbers would place the recent wave of disappearances in Mexico among the worst in the history of Latin America.
As the number of people who have disappeared continues to mount, Human Rights Watch has repeatedly called on the government to set up a national database of the disappeared. For example, the names in the database could be checked against the records of hospitals, morgues, prisons, and border crossings around the country.
Such a database would be particularly useful if paired with a complementary national registry of unidentified bodies.
According to the National Human Rights Commission, more than 6, unidentified remains were recovered from January to Decembermany of them in mass graves. However, while the Calderon administration proved it was capable of setting up national databases of stolen cars and of police officers with criminal records, it failed to set up similar registries for the disappeared or unidentified bodies.
As a result, thousands of families continue to be deprived the possibility of knowing the fate of their loved ones through a simple match. In addition to disappearances being a continuous crime, another reason it is essential that cases from the previous administration be investigated and prosecuted is because some individuals forced to confess under torture continue to be imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.
The torture stopped only after the men, while blindfolded, signed confessions that had been written by their tormentors. Yet he never proposed a plan to turn his rhetoric into reality, let alone ensured that such a plan was implemented, revealing that he did not take seriously his responsibility to address these abuses.
Therefore, we urge you to develop a comprehensive plan of concrete, detailed public policy solutions to address these serious problems. Among the critical issues that the plan should address are: In order to develop an effective plan that tackles these and other critical issues, I strongly recommend that your administration review our report, Neither Rights Nor Securitywhich provides an in-depth analysis of abuses by security and justice officials, as well as targeted recommendations for how to address them.
In response, the president pledged to investigate not only all of the individual cases documented in the report, but also the patterns of abuse they reflected, and proposed creating a joint commission with Human Rights Watch to follow through on this pledge.
And—with a few exceptions, such as passing protocols for the federal police and the military on the use of force—the administration failed to meet its commitments to implement broader reforms, which would have helped prevent new cases of disappearances, torture, and executions.
President, we recognize that Mexico is afflicted by very powerful organized crime groups, which have committed horrific crimes against their rivals, security forces, and innocent civilians.
We also understand that the government has a duty to take measures to ensure the safety of its citizens, as well as to provide an effective remedy when Mexicans are the victims of such crime.To maintain the deposit, we must notify Aduana (in writing) every year that we renew our INM permit.
