Guatemala: Fear for Safety

, Index number: AMR 34/021/2006

Oscar Humberto Duarte Paíz (m), a senior member of a local development organisation (Association for the Development of Quetzal City), has been kidnapped. Other members (including René Guzmán Quiñónez, David Alarcón and José Cuellar) have been intimidated, since the organisation attempted to mediate between police and the local community. Amnesty International believes the kidnapped man's life is at risk, and his colleagues are in grave danger.
