In this essay the importance of access to information when it comes to serious human rights violations will be analyzed taking into account two cases that happened in Mexico: the slaughter of seventy two migrants in the municipality of San Fernando, Tamaulipas, in 2010, and the subsequent discovery of several mass graves in the same municipality, which occurred in 2011. All this will be analyzed in the light of the criteria issued by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation and inter-American standards on the subject.
