The Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), the Mexican Commission of Defense and Human Rights Promotion (CMDPDH) and the Citizens’ Commission of Human Rights of the Northeast (CCDH) (hereafter ‘organizations’) publish this report summarizing the information submitted to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in accordance with article 15 of the Rome Statute. This report concerns the alleged commission of crimes under the jurisdiction of the ICC in Mexico from 2006 to 2012, particularly in the State of Baja California.

This report mainly addresses alleged commission of crimes against humanity by agents of the State in Baja California. This does not mean that less importance is attributed to the seriousness of crimes committed by organized crime groups.

The information herein refers mainly to cases documented by CMDPDH and CCDH, some of which are contained in recommendations by the National Commission for Human Rights (CNDH) or by the Procuraduria de Derechos Humanos y Proteccion Ciudadana de Baja California (PDHBC), and national and local human rights institutions created in accordance with the Paris Principles. The report also contains information obtained from interviews and testimonies. Other cases, for which the PDHBC had already issued recommendations and that follow a similar pattern of attacks, are also presented.
