 Missing students in Mexico: head of commission of inquiry flew to Israel< /p>

The head of a commission to investigate the disappearance of 43 students in Mexico flew to Israel in 2014 to convince fugitive ex-official Thomas Zeron to cooperate. The former head of Mexico's Criminal Investigation Agency is wanted on charges of compromising an investigation into the disappearance of students, as well as embezzling more than $50 million and torturing suspects. The ex-official fled to Israel from Mexico after the investigation was reopened with the arrival of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in 2019. He denies all accusations against students. Last year, when Israel refused to extradite a suspect, the head of the commission, Alejandro Encinas, flew into the country. According to the Times, for three hours he begged Zeron's cooperation to keep the light on the strange disappearance of dozens of students. He promised that there was no need for the President of Mexico to imprison anyone, but that the case needed to be solved. Meanwhile, if the ex-official is found guilty, he will face up to 60 years in prison.
