Mexican Torture Training Raises Questions About U.S. Military/Police Aid

Two videos of a torture-training session with the police force of León, Guanajuato shocked the Mexican public last week and raised serious questions about human rights…[T]he video clips show foreign private security companies teaching torture interrogation techniques to Mexican security forces…[A]n investigative report from the online newspaper NarcoNews, uncovered evidence that indicates the trainers are from a Miami-based private security company called "Risks, Incorporated."...The images raise serious questions about the direction of U.S. aid under Plan Mexico (Merida Initiative). The Plan includes an unspecified amount for contracts to U.S. private security companies. [The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Risks Incorporated to respond. We did not receive a response.]
