Alejandro González Iñárritu, a filmmaker and Oscar winner, released an animated video, where he supports the idea of the creation of an independent and autonomous Attorney General.

In support of the #AnAttorneyThatWorks (#FiscalíaQueSirva), the filmmaker portrays the Ayotzinapa case and reminds us that the Attorney General's Office (PGR) hasn't investigated the Federal Police or the Army, who “knew of the crime and were present in events related to the enforced disappearance.”

The director explains that this is called impunity and that it has an explanation: “the prosecutors, the army, and the federal police officers depend on the President” and that “this happens when a local prosecutor doesn't investigate a Governor.”

In the clip titled “Raise the Curtain” ("Arriba el Telón"), promote by the Mexican Commission for Human Rights Defense and Promotion (Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos), Iñárritu emphasizes that in Mexico, people distrust prosecutors and attorneys “to the point where only 6% of crimes are reported, and in very few cases the responsible ones are jailed.”

In the face of this, he proposes “having Attorneys independent from the President, Governors, political parties, criminals, and economic interests.”

The proposed Organic Law of the Attorney General, promoted by several civic organizations can be found on this website.
