The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) asked the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) for access to the information it collected during its investigation into the disappearance of the 43 students in Ayotzinapa, which is kept under wraps.


The CNDH, on a press release, recognized the work of the international experts, but said that it does not substitute its commitment for the defense of human rights.


Also, the CNDH has created a file on the so-called "Iguala case" compiling the records of alleged human rights violations, arbitrary arrests, as well as the cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, including torture, denounced by some of the detainees.


So far, it has compiled 11 cases of possible arbitrary detention and 47 of alleged acts of torture.
