A report from the Citizen Observatory of Justice reviews compliance with human rights protections under Mexico’s new justice system. The Observatory, which is comprised of MacArthur grantees Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos, Instituto de Justicia Procesal Penal, and Asilegal, a recipient of the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, identifies and encourages reforms that will foster a more complete transition to the new system, including higher standards for pretrial detention and the elimination of pretrial detention in situations where charges have not been pressed.
