Eleven Mexican officers convicted of massacre on US border |  outside

Eleven Mexican officers convicted of massacre on US border | outside

The judge found that it had been proven that officers shot nineteen people in 2021 in the town of Camargo in the northern state of Tamaulipas on the Mexican border with the United States. They then set their bodies on fire and lied about their involvement. Most of the victims were Guatemalan citizens.

The Camargo massacre was one of the worst mass killings of migrants in Mexico in recent years. El Pais confirms that the difference from other mass murders is that the perpetrators this time were police officers, who also lied to the authorities. One of those lies is that the bodies were already burned when they were found. The judge found them guilty of murder, abuse of power and crimes committed while exercising administrative functions. The verdict has not yet been pronounced.

The lies of the convicted officers were exposed through the statements of another police officer, Ismael Vasquez, who participated in the operation that ended the lives of the migrants. At first he agreed with his colleagues’ story, until he changed his mind and told the authorities that it was not true that the bodies had been found: rather, his comrades had killed them and burned their bodies.
