Ecuador: Fear for safety/possible prisoners of conscience

, Index number: AMR 28/001/2000

Ciro Guzmán Aldas, Luis Villacis Maldonado and José Chávez were detained by the security forces on 15 January 2000, apparently only because they called for President Jamil Mahuad to resign over Ecuador's economic crisis. Amnesty International therefore believes they may be prisoners of conscience and is seriously concerned for their safety, in particular that they may be ill-treated and tortured.
