Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Raciel López Salazar, interim head of the State Attorney General’s Office, has officially taken over the FGE reins. On Tuesday, Salazar held a meeting with members of a group of Cancun mothers in search of their missing persons.
It was one of his first public duties as interim. The meeting was agreed to after the group of mothers held a protest outside the FGE office around the same time as the departure of the former FGE head, Oscar Montes de Oca Rosales.
In this first meeting, the Acting Attorney General listened to the mothers who presented their cases individually, requesting speed in the investigations. López Salazar agreed to review each of the folders and provide a corresponding follow-up.
“I come to work. My commitment is to review each of the folders and implement new mechanisms to find the whereabouts of their relatives,” López Salazar said in a statement.
The group have been protesting in various areas of Cancun for months due to a lack of results in locating their missing loved ones. On Monday, the group said they would continue to protest outside the FGE office until they were heard.
On Monday afternoon, the former head of the Quintana Roo Attorney General’s Office, Oscar Montes de Oca Rosales, resigned. His official resignation was posted on the FGE social media account after his Monday morning press conference.
His permanent replacement is expected to be announced before the end of July.
