The Voz y Dignidad por los Nuestros SLP AC collective reported that during the month of December a total of 400 sample collection kits were distributed to identify family members who had disappeared in the state.

As part of the campaign that he carried out in the National Search Commission in the towns of Jalisco, San Luis Potosí and Guanajuato.

“There was a very good influx of relatives who gave their sample to be able to start with that database at the national level, one that we have requested so much,” they commented.

It should be noted that this database is carried out with the purpose of obtaining genetic profiles for the identification of disappeared persons, after the approval of the creation of the National Center for Human Identification (CNIH).

In addition to this, they pointed out that there is a great need to develop forensic identification, in the face of a disappearance crisis that is going through San Luis Potosí and the entire country.

They also indicated that although the 400 Kits were not used in their entirety within the capital, the rest were transferred to other municipalities in the state so that more collateral victims of disappearance could have the opportunity to be part of this database.

It should be noted that at least two relatives per disappeared person were sampled.

On the other hand, they also reported that through the Extraordinary Forensic Identification Mechanism (MEIF) the last phase is about to be completed to integrate a single database to share information with the San Luis Potosí State Attorney General’s Office (FGE).

Where will also be a forensic genetics laboratory, like the one installed in San Luis Potosí at the CEIF, which will continue the process for accreditation and specialization.
