Further information on UA 478/90 (AMR 23/63/90, 22 November 1990) - Possible
Extrajudicial Executions/Death Threats
COLOMBIA Germán Antonio REDONDO
Gloria Amparo VIVEROS LUCUMY
Amnesty International has received information from the Colombian Presidential
Adviser on Human Rights that an official investigation has been opened into
the killing of Germán Antonio Redondo and his girlfriend Gloria Amparo Viveros
Lucumy on 13 November and 19 November 1990 in circumstances suggesting they
may have been the victims of extrajudicial execution.
The preliminary investigation has been moved from Tuluá, where the killings
took place, to Buga, also in Valle department, where it is in the hands of
the First Court of Public Order. Whilst Amnesty International welcomes the
investigation, there is concern that although many such investigations are
opened in Colombia, only exceptionally do they lead to the identification and
prosecution of those responsible for the human rights violations.
RECOMMENDED ACTION: Telexes/faxes/express and airmail letters:
- continuing to express concern at the killings of Germán Antonio Redondo
and Gloria Amparo Viveros Lucumy in circumstances suggesting they may have
been victims of extrajudicial executions;
- welcoming the official investigation into the killings and urging that it
be thorough and impartial and the results made public.
