Guatemala: Claudina Velásquez : [Global letter-writing marathon 2006]
19 year-old Claudina Velásquez had been studying to become a lawyer when her dead body was found on 13 August 2005. She had been shot and traces of semen were found on her body. Amnesty International is deeply concerned that Claudina's killers may not be brought to justice, as serious deficiencies have been reported in the investigation into her murder. Amnesty International believes that new lines of investigation should be opened.
