Our sympathies are with family of Claudia Uruchurtu who disappeared on the 26th March 2021. The Ambassador and the Embassy have been in regular contact with her family and have raised the case with senior representatives of the Federal government and the outgoing and incoming governments of the State of Oaxaca. On 7 December, the judge found four of those accused of the forced disappearance of Claudia to be guilty. They will be sentenced on 15 December. We remain in contact with the family and state authorities to ensure that due process continues to be followed.
