Derived from the military operation that left 12 people dead in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, on July 3, 2020, the CNDH sent a Recommendation to the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena), General Luis Cresencio Sandoval González, and to the head of the Attorney General’s Office of Justice (FGJ) of that state, Irving Barrios Mojica, for excessive use of force and for not adequately investigating the case.

It should be noted that the case was released after a video came to light where elements of the Sedena are observed ordering an alleged execution against at least one civilian who was traveling in a truck allegedly involved in a previous confrontation.

When issuing Recommendation 90/2021, the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) recalled that at dawn on July 3, 2020, a military convoy carried out reconnaissance work on the Boulevard Aeropuerto, at the height of the Los Fresnos subdivision, in Nuevo Laredo, when they had a confrontation with armed civilians who were traveling in three vans and in which 12 people lost their lives, including three people who had previously been reported as missing and who were transported in the pan of one of the vans where they were traveling the aggressors.

The CNDH explained that after analyzing the case, it credited the violation of the human right to life, due to excessive use of force, attributable to military personnel; as well as the violation of the right of access to justice, in its form of improper prosecution of justice, by public servants of the state prosecutor’s office.

Regarding what happened, the Sedena reported that on the day of the events, soldiers carrying out dissuasive reconnaissance in Nuevo Laredo were attacked by armed persons, in response to which they repelled the attack, in order to safeguard physical integrity and “by virtue of that no other level of force could be used anymore ”. As a result of this episode of violence, 12 people lost their lives.
