In a note by Diario (click here)reporter Alejandro Salmón, the author writes the following:
Governor Cesar Duarte suggested that intervention of UN troops in Chihuahua might be studied by his government.
After signing an agreement to collaborate with the United Nations for the promotion of a culture of legality, the governor said he would take advantage of this new relationship to benefit Chihuahua in various ways.
"This is a subject being discussed in the Senate of the federal government, but if given a chance we would consider the possibility (of UN intervention). "
At the same time (click here) El Fronterizo reports that UN representative Antonio Matzitelli, who signed the agreement with the governor, suggested to reporters that UN troops intervene only under conditions of war, which is not the case in Chihuahua. He indicated that lowering the violence in the state requires a pact among mexican federal and state institutions.
Matzitelli said the UN would help analyze the strategy now being implemented, and seek operational solutions in specifice cases, using models and practices that have worked well in other places. the UN will also give training to judges, prosecutors, and investigators, provide software to police forces, and offer advice on preventing crime
