Chávez nomination as Attorney General under fire

The nomination of Arturo Chávez Chávez as Attorney General is facing increasing criticism. According to Reforma’s Templo Mayor, a confirmation hearing before the Senate Security Commission scheduled for Tuesday has been postponed. A majority of PRI and PAN senators are thought to oppose the nomination, and some PAN senators are also said to be unwilling to vote in favor because of the opposition of Mexican and international human rights groups. Chávez was Attorney General of Chihuahua when the case of the serial killings of women in Ciudad Juárez first came to light. (Reforma 9/14, Universal 9/14)
