Guatemala: Fear for safety/intimidation

, Index number: AMR 34/033/2002

Human rights defenders Jesus Tecú Osorio,Carlos Chen Osorio, Pedrina Burrero Lopez, and Juan de Dios García Xajil work for a non-governmental organisation that is exhuming the clandestine mass graves of people massacred by the army during Guatemala's civil conflict in an area in Baja Verapaz Department inhabited by the Maya-Achí indigenous people. All have been receiving anonymous death threats for some time, but these have suddenly increased, and Amnesty International believes their lives are in danger.
