Monica Feria-Tinta acting before the United Nations Working Group on enforced or involuntary disappearances

Monica Feria-Tinta is acting as lead counsel in the representation of a case before the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances.

The case concerns the enforced disappearance of Adrian Favela, a Mexican youth who was arrested (never to be seen again) in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, by armed agents of the Judicial Police (Policía Ministerial) of the State of Chihuahua, in 2012.

The case is emblematic of the phenomenon of torture and enforced disappearances by state agents, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, referred to as “one of the most dangerous cities in the world”. Throughout the first half of 2018 alone, Chihuahua had the sixth highest number of enforced disappearances with 2,186 registered in the state according to the National Register of Lost or Disappeared People, which calculates its figures based on official reports presented to the authorities. According to Non-Governmental Organisations, however, the true figure would be higher.

Monica has been instructed by lawyers from the Centro de Derechos Paso del Norte.
