Mexico authorities blamed for disappearances

Rights groups point the finger at corrupt police in country with lax policies on abductions.

    In Mexico, many families searching for answers about missing loved ones have been faced with corruption within the justice system, according to the latest UN report.

    Only eight out of 32 states consider enforced disappearances a crime.

    Human rights groups estimate 30 per cent of the missing people were abducted by corrupt Mexican authorities, including the police.
