Colombia: fear for safety: Jorge Enrique Illera Dodino, human rights activist, Oscar Becerra, community leader and many others
Jorge Enrique Illera Dodino, Oscar Becerra and about 10 other civic and community leaders in the municipalities of Convencion and El Carmed are reported to be on a "death list". The list is alleged to have been drawn up by the Departament Administrativo de Seguridad (DAS) and then supplied to a paramilitary group operating in the region. Jorge Enrique Illera Dodino, a human rights activist, was detained several times in the mid-1980s and subjected to torture and threats. A denunciation of the "death list" has been presented to the relevant authorities.
