CADHAC (Ciudadanos en Apoyo a los Derechos Humanos A.C.: Citizens in Support of Human Rights A. C.)
October 4, 2017
Today, the Nuevo Leon State Attorney General’s Office signed a collaboration agreement with CADHAC and EnfoqueDH – a project funded by the U. S. Agency for International Development – with the objective of strengthening capacities to investigate and locate missing persons in Nuevo Leon.
The document was signed by Attorney Bernardo Gonzalez; by the director of EnfoqueDH Políticas Públicas en Derechos Humanos, Laura Zambrano and Consuelo Morales, Director of CADHAC. Consul General Timothy Zúñiga-Brown and USAID-Mexico Director Elizabeth Warfield accompanied the event as witnesses of honor.
The signing of the cooperation agreement comes at a crucial time for the enforcement of human rights in the state of Nuevo León, particularly since civil society is actively participating in the strengthening of its institutions, accompanying, promoting and evaluating state action in the face of its responsibilities.
For CADHAC, the signing of the collaboration agreement will allow, along with AMORES (Agrupación de Mujeres Organizadas por los Ejecutados, Secuestrados y Desaparecidos de Nuevo Léon: Association of Women Organized by the Executed, Kidnapped and Disappeared of New Leon), to make futher progress towards the search for truth and justice, while ensuring that new practices are incorporated into the institution of justice so as to allow for progress in non-repetition measures.
