'Weak Rule of Law threatens Mexico' says Human Rights Commission

“What we have to do to tackle the challenges that we face in terms of public security is to not allow any crime go unpunished,” said the president of the National Human Rights Commission.

A recent spike in violence against those who demand justice and improved security in Mexico are just one of many examples of a weak Rule of Law in Mexico, said the president of the Mexican National Human Rights Commission, Luis Raúl González Pérez.

When asked about the recent wave of violence reported in Veracruz after the widely reported disappearance of a Catholic priest, the Mexican ombudsman said that the government must speed up security measures in the country and assure citizens that there is “judicial certainty that all crimes will be punished.”

He urged the government to punish everyone who commits a crime in the country.

“What we have to do to tackle the challenges that we face in terms of public security is to not allow any crime go unpunished.”

“Once we see criminals get punished for their crimes, that's when we'll see a stronger Rule of Law in the country. Unfortunately, that's not what's happening today,” he warned.
