Colombia: fear for Safety

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 23/002/1999

There is serious concern for the safety of human rights workers Carlos Ulloa and Stella Guerra, after a death threat was reportedly made against them by a man linked to paramilitary groups operating in the area. The two are members of the Comisión Intercongrecional de Justicia y Paz in the municipality of Trujillo, Valle del Cauca Department. The threat has also raised concern for the safety of those working with the Asociación de Familiares de Víctimas de Trujillo (AFAVIT), Association of Relatives of the Victims of Trujillo, an organization which the Comisión Intercongrecional de Justicia y Paz supports.
