GUERRERO, Mexico.-Ángel Aguirre Rivero, former governor of Guerrero (2011-2014) accused Enrique Peña Nieto to use it as “scapegoat“in the investigation of the disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa, occurred on the night of September 26 and early morning of September 27, 2014 in Iguala de la Independencia
In addition, Aguirre questioned the AMLO government why does not call other former officials to testify of the previous six-year term.
I do not want to think that there is protection for these characters, because we must be treated with the same standards, I do not understand why they have not been touched, “said the former governor.
His participation focused on his defense in the Ayotzinapa Case
This Wednesday, Aguirre Rivero was the guest in the session of the ACA Group, place where his participation focused on his defense in the Ayotzinapa Case.
“Did Governor Aguirre have something to do with it? If I had promoted an event of that nature, it would have been like digging my own grave. Why would he send these young people to be kidnapped and disappeared? It has no logic. What happened? You had to look for a scapegoat because the federal government did not give any importance to this fact.
What did they tell President Peña? It’s a local issue, it’s a narquillos thing, don’t get involved, president, I let the governor take care of him “Aguirre said.
He accused EPN of minimizing the disappearance of the students
The ex-president accused the government of Peña Nieto to minimize the disappearance of the 43 students. “When it takes other dimensions they say: let’s see what happened in Iguala.”
We did not know, they said, the dimension of the problem. I wonder: if there is an Army Battalion in Iguala, if there was a Federal Police detachment in Iguala, if there is an office of the then Attorney General’s Office in Iguala, if the Cisen at that time he presumed that he knew second by second what was happening in the country.
Do you think that President Peña I was not aware of what was happening at the time in Iguala? “, he launched. In addition, Aguirre Rivero said that he is the most interested in clarifying the crime against the normalistas.
He stated that he has testified before the General Prosecutor of the Republic (FGR) on at least three occasions, along with who was the state attorney general, Iñaki Blanco Cabrera and the then Secretary General of the Government, Jesús Garnelo Martínez.
