Mexico: Further information: Demand protection for relatives of disappeared

, Index number: AMR 41/4916/2016

The relative of a disappeared young man in Mexico has been assaulted and threatened in an apparent attempt to stop him and his family from campaigning on their case. In July the authorities withdrew police protection for the family, days after another relative visited Canada to campaign with Amnesty International. Existing protection measures are inadequate as they failed to prevent the latest attack.
