Chihuahua's attorney general is planning to invite victims' family members to the oral trials (Chihuahua is one of the states where pilot programs are farthest along) of 101 alleged gunmen detained in the state:
The idea, she said, is that the residents of Ciudad Juárez, who have been burdened and affected by violence from organized crime, specifically by the murders, can witness the process that is carried out against these alleged criminals and can perceive that the state is working to end their impunity.
This is, in the scheme of things, a small step, but in that it takes into account the importance of the population's confidence in the government, this is undeniably a move in a positive direction.
