Guatemala: Amnesty International urges Guatemala to step up efforts to strengthen the judiciary and end to protect human rights defenders
Amnesty International welcomes Guatemala’s support of 21 recommendations related to strengthening protection measures for human rights defenders. Defenders operate in an extremely hostile environment in Guatemala, with 483 attacks against them recorded in 2017 by local NGOs. The organization urges Guatemala to implement these recommendations and to adopt a public policy for their protection, in line with Guatemala’s international obligations.
