Guatemala: Possible extrajudicial execution/ Fear for safety

, Index number: AMR 34/027/2002

The head of Guatemala's National Printing Office has fled the country to escape death threats, after she accused Vice President Juan Francisco Reyes of illegally ordering the Office to print leaflets attacking another official. Plant workers César Posadas (m), Edgar López (m) and Mario Castro (m), whose testimony supported her accusation have received death threats, and one (César Augusto Rodas Furlán) has been murdered. Amnesty International believes that all those named above plus associated lawyers and investigators (Conchita Mazariegos (f), Alfonso Novales (m), Anabella de León (f) and Magda Arceo) are in grave danger.
