Argentina: Vanessa Lorena Ledesma and repeated threats to other transvestites in the Province of Córodoba (update)

, Index number: AMR 13/015/2001

This document provides updated information on the case of Vanessa Lorena Ledesma, a transvsetite who died in police custody in February 2000. An investigation into the events surrounding her death was halted in September 2000 and the case against the implicated police officers dropped. Since then members of organizations working for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights, who have been campaigning for the case to be reopened, have been subjected to death threats and repeated harasment.
