Ariel Dulitzky is the Director of the Human Rights Clinic at the University of Texas School of Law. He highlighted key findings from a Human Rights Clinic report on the relationship between organized crime and the state in Coahuila, Mexico and the human rights violations, including disappearances, that have been committed there. The report analyzes the most important information arising out of witness testimonies from three U.S. federal trials against members of the Zeta cartel. The report maps out the hierarchical structure of the Zetas, documents the links between the Zetas and Coahuila state authorities, and identifies human rights abuses perpetrated by the cartel.
