Colombia: Human Rights Defender at Risk
Danelly Estupiñan defends the rights of the afro-descendent population in Buenaventura, Valle del Cauca as part of the organization Black Community Process (Proceso Comunitario Negro). For the last seven months, Danelly has been facing surveillance from unknown men, which increased last week from once a day and only at her home to two times per day and in all locations she visits. The unknown men surveillance not only Danelly but also her family members, taking pictures and videos. We call upon the Public Prosecutor’s Office to launch an immediate investigation into these incidents to ensure she is protected.
