LA REFORMA CONSTITUCIONAL DE 1999 A LOS ORGANISMOS PROTECTORES DE LOS DERECHOS HUMANOS

Jorge CARPIZO

"The main reason for the creation of the National Human Rights Commission was the alarming increase in the violations of human rights, committed mainly by government offices and Federal police in charge of the fight against drug trafficking". With this idea on the origins of the Commission, the author puts forward the evolution of this institution in Mexico up to the present time, concentra-ting his analysis on the recent Constitu-tional reform of September 13, 1999. He thus gives us his opinion on the denomi-nation adopted, its autonomous juridical nature and, in his opinion the most important since this reaffirms the autono-mous nature, the appointment of the President of the CNDH as an exclusive faculty of the Senate and, in the recesses of same, of the Permanent Commission. Finally, he makes an outstanding analysis of the transitory articles, two of which are contrasting since one is founded on the praise of the Board, and the other on ques-tioning the-then holder of the Presidency, and on the proposals which were not accepted with some of which the author agrees such as, for example, the faculty to exercise the action of unconstitutionality or that of knowing the administrative actions of the Federal courts.
