Mexico's Interior Ministry secretary, Alejandro Poire, on Thursday will to unveil a memorial in Juarez dedicated to women slain in Juarez, state officials said.
The Interior Ministry is similar to the State Department in the United States.
The dedication will be at a cotton field in Juarez where eight girls and young women were found slain on November 2001.
Federal officials are still working on Poire's schedule. Chihuahua Gov. Cesar Duarte will attend the event.
The memorial complies with a December 2010 sentence issued by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, part of the Organization of American States.
According to the court's ruling, the Mexican government did not thoroughly investigate the 2001 cotton field murders, and instructed the officials to investigate and follow other directives.
