The Mexican administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, since 2018, has issued 101 arrest warrants against people linked to the notorious 43 missing students case from Ayotzinapa, Guerrero.

Iran PressAmerica: According to a report delivered at the Mexican Senate, until March 31 of this year, federal judges had only granted 63 of those 101 warrants.

One of them was against the former director of the Criminal Investigation Agency (AIC), Tomás Zerón de Lucio, who is wanted for torture. He is currently hiding in Israel, which does not have an extradition treaty with Mexico.

In addition, 34 search operations have been carried out in six municipalities in the state of Guerrero: Cocula, Huitzuco, Iguala, Eduardo Neri, Tepecoacuilco, and San Miguel Totolapan. Genetic identification work is currently being conducted on 240 exhumed remains found in these areas. The University of Innsbruck in Austria is helping in the DNA examinations.

This revelation comes days after Mexican media outlets reported that former Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) leader Abigael Gonzalez Valencia (alias "El Cuini") agreed to confess what he knew about Ayotzinapa case.

Earlier this week in Chilpancingo, Guerrero, about 100 students from the rural school in Ayotzinapa went to the local Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) offices and burned a figure of ex-governor Angel Aguirre Rivero as a sign of protest. The protestors say that he is one of the suspects in the disappearance case.

The protestors then headed to the home of Evelyn Salgado Pineda, who is running for governor under the National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) party, and burned another figure of ex-secretary of Education, Jose Luis Gonzalez de la Vega. Evelyn is the daughter of Felix Salgado Macedonio, former mayor of Acapulco who was recently accused of sexual abuse.

The parents of the missing students activated another search movement in Guerrero from 19 to 23 May 2021. Some of the parents recognized AMLO's work on the case but admitted that there is much more to be done.
