Mexico: Fear for safety / Possible ill-treatment, Brigadier General José Francisco Gallardo Rodríguez

, Index number: AMR 41/032/2001

Prisoner of conscience, Brigadier General José Francisco Gallardo Rodríguez, who was jailed in 1993 for criticizing human rights violations by the Mexican armed forces, was reportedly transferred to a punishment cell on 28 August. General Gallardo may have been transferred in reprisal for his recent press statements and Amnesty International is concerned for his safety, as he may be held prison conditions which amount to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment.
