Parents of Missing Mexican Students Criticize Government
The parents of 43 Mexican students missing since 2014 said the government lied to them.
The parents made their claim a day after a group of international experts issued a report criticizing the way the Mexican government handled the case.
One parent said "the government started lying to us from the start."
The Mexican government said the students were training to be teachers at a small college when they were kidnapped. They said corrupt local police officers turned the students over to a drug gang.
The government said the students were killed and their bodies were burned in a mass grave in the southern part of Mexico.
Experts from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights studied the case and said there are problems with the way the Mexican government presented the case's timeline. There are also problems with the way they studied the bones left at the mass grave.
Experts also said the government provided information from suspects who were tortured by police and military personnel. The torture led to confessions that will not be allowed in court by Mexican judges.
The report also said any information that did not support the government's original description of the case was not taken seriously.
The Mexican president, Enrique Pena Nieto, wrote a message on Twitter saying the government "will analyze the whole report."
In spite of the new report, there is no new information about the students, who have been missing since September 2014.
When the report was presented at a news conference on Sunday, parents chanted: "They took them away alive, we want them back alive!"

墨西哥政府称失踪学生来自一所师范大学 。据悉，当地“黑警”将学生交给了一个贩毒团伙 。
负责调查此案的美洲人权委员会专家表示，墨西哥政府在陈述案发经过时存在诸多问题 。对乱葬岗尸骨的调查取证也疑点重重 。
专家表示，政府曾提交了从受刑嫌犯处获得的口供 。但墨西哥法官以逼供所得证词不能作为证据驳回 。
墨西哥总统恩里克·培尼亚·涅托(Enrique Pena Nieto)在Twitter上发布一则信息，表示政府会“竭力分析整篇报告” 。
