Guatemala: Fear for safety: Sulma, other transvestite sex workers in Guatemala City and members of Integral Sexuality AIDS Support Organisation (OASIS)

, Index number: AMR 34/044/2005

Transvestite sex worker Sulma (legal name Kevin Josué Alegria Robles) was shot in the head, allegedly by police, on 17 December, and remains in hospital in a serious condition. Another transvestite sex worker was killed in the attack. As Sulma witnessed the killing, the attackers are likely to attempt to silence her, but the authorities have not responded to requests to give her protection.
