Colombia: Fear for safety / Possible extrajudicial execution

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 23/080/1998

On 20 October 1998 Jorge Ortega García was murdered outside his home after being shot by an unknown gunman. There are serious concerns that other leaders of the Central Unitaria de Trabajadores (CUT), including Domingo Rafael Tovar Arrieta may be the target of similar attacks, particularly in the light of the on-going 15 day national strike coordinated by the CUT.
