Guatemala: Fear for safety

, Index number: AMR 34/008/1996

There is grave concern for the safety of Vilma Cristina Gonzalez, who was abducted, tortured and raped on 27 February by armed men in civilian clothes, of Veronica Vazquez, who was victim to an attempted abduction on the same day, and of Vilma's brother Reynaldo Federico Gonzalez. Both Vilma and Reynaldo have been warned to leave the country. Reynaldo Federico Gonzalez is the Secretary General of the Federacion Sindical de Empleados Bancarios y de Seguros de Guatemala (FESBES) and has received previous death threats.
