Mexico: Fear of torture or ill-treatment and new concern: Fear for safety

, Index number: AMR 41/021/2007

Human rights defender Aline Castellanos' home was broken into and searched while on 28 April. The burglary happened the day after a Judge issued a warrant for her arrest. This is the third warrant that has been issued for her arrest. The previous two warrants were annulled by federal injunctions. Lawyer Yesica Sánchez of the Liga Mexicana para la Defensa de los Derechos Humanos (Mexican League for the Defence of Human Rights, LIMEDDH) also has an arrest warrant pending on evidence that appears to be flawed.
