"Given the repetition of cases in which justice is exercised by one's own hand, the CNDH prepares a report on the lynching problem, emphasizing that righteousness by its own hand is not justice but barbarism," the agency said in a statement.
Interviewed at the end of the inauguration of the Second Ordinary General Assembly 2018 of the National Commission of Supreme Court of the United Mexican States (Conatrib), in Guadalajara, Jalisco, the National Ombudsman, Luis Raúl González Pérez, declared that while the State meets his obligations to reduce impunity and minimum conditions for the safety of society, mistrust in institutions and the desperation of people to obtain justice will open the door to new lawsuits to be presented by one's own hand.
González Pérez rejected recent cases of lynching in Hidalgo and Puebla and also demanded an objective and extensive investigation into the facts.
