Federal judge Samuel Ventura Ramos released another 24 defendants for the disappearance of the 43 young normalistas from Ayotzinapawith which there are already 120 allegedly implicated who have achieved their freedom, lamented the Undersecretary of the Interior, Alejandro Encinas.

In that same ruling, he also freed 19 more people from all responsibility in the disappearance of the young normalistas. Before he released another 77 alleged perpetrators.

On his Twitter account, the Secretary of the Interior and president of the Commission for Truth and Access to Justice in the Ayotzinapa Case, Alejandro Encinas, once again attacked Judge Ventura Ramos for having granted 120 acquittal sentences to people linked to the disappearance of the normalistas on September 26, 2014.

“This is the justice that the figureheads of the Historical Truth defend,” he criticized.

About a week ago, when Abarca’s acquittal was known, Encinas trusted that the Attorney General’s Office would challenge the sentence in order to render it null and void.

He explained that the criminal case for which the 24 subjects were released this morning corresponds to an investigation opened by the then Attorney General’s Office in 2018.

Regarding the case, this Wednesday the federal judge Enrique Beltrán issued a formal arrest warrant for José Rodríguez Pérez, former commander of the 27th Infantry Battalion, based in Iguala, Guerrero, identified by Encinas himself as the alleged intellectual author of the murder of six young normalistas days after his disappearance.
