Guatemala: Fear for Safety: Relatives and witnesses in the trial of Juan Chanay Pablo

, Index number: AMR 34/016/1999

Twelve former members of a civil defence patrol imprisoned for the 1993 extrajudicial execution of villager Juan Chanay Pablo were freed from jail after the jail was attacked by a large group of their supporters. The escaped men are said to have fled to Mexico. Amnesty International is concerned that relatives of Juan Chanay Pablo and witnesses to his murder may now be at risk.
