National Guard killed child in accident; CNDH asks for reparation

Elements of the National Guard caused the death of a child by an accident on the road to Santiago Jamiltepec, Oaxaca, in January 2020.
According to recommendation 97/2022 of the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH), the victims of the incident were driving on a road in Jamiltepec, when they encountered a National Guard van that was traveling in the opposite direction at high speed and invaded the opposite lane and hit it on the left side, causing the death of the child and injuries to two more passengers, as well as damage to two vehicles.
The victim who denounced the elements of the National Guard before the CNDH, maintained that the uniformed men lied in their ministerial statement, as well as their superiors, and that experts from the Oaxaca Prosecutor’s Office presented “opinions that supported the false version,” the agency said in a statement.

In 2020, a van in the @GN_MEXICO_ hit a vehicle carrying workers, causing the death of a minor; for these facts we issue #Recomendación 97/2022 to the @SSPCMexico and @FISCALIA_GobOax.

“The victim’s version was that the GN vehicle invaded the lane where he was driving, ensuring that it hit them on his left side. However, the necropsy performed on the minor and the testimonies of the other victims and neighbors verified that the head trauma of the infant that caused his death occurred due to traffic events in a moving motor vehicle. The side mirror of the official van hit the minor’s head, causing massive external bleeding, brain mass exposure, skull fracture and head trauma caused by secondary deep contusion,” the CNDH said.
The commission said that violations of the right to life and access to justice were accredited, so it directed the recommendation to the federal Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection and the Oaxaca Prosecutor’s Office, so that the damage be repaired, compensation be granted, as well as medical and psychological attention to those affected.
