Mexico: Fear for safety/death threats

, Index number: AMR 41/004/2005

Lydia Cacho Ribeiro, president of the organization Centro Integral de Atención a las Mujeres (CIAM), Women's Assistance Centre, and staff at three CIAM shelters around Mexico, have received a number of death threats as a result of their work to protect the rights of women and girls. CIAM provides shelter, legal and medical assistance to women and girls, particularly to those who have been victims of domestic violence. Amnesty International believes that Lydia Cacho Ribeiro and others working for CIAM may be in danger.
