After questioning nine candidates, the congress of Baja California selected Heriberto García García to act as the next Special Prosecutor for Human Rights for the state, a position that carries a term of three years. García García has replaced Francisco Javier Sánchez Corona, who declined to seek a second term. He has experience as a delegate for the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) in the state, as well as in the office that he now directs.
