Colombia: Fear for Safety / Death Threats to Members of the human rights organization Corporación para la Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos REINICIAR
Members of a human rights organization based in the capital, Bogotá, have received death threats, and Amnesty International believes they are in grave danger. The threats are thought to be related to their campaigning work on a high profile human rights case which is before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. In the last three months the organisation's telephone lines have reportedly been tapped or blocked. People entering or leaving the offices have reportedly been watched, and the leaders of the organization have been followed.
