===========================================================================
Amnesty International has received reports that María Elena Salinas Gallego
and Jorge Restrepo Florez, who were detained on 10 September 1990 in Medellín,
Antioquia department, by agents of the Colombian military police, have been
transferred from the base of the army's III Brigade to prison. It is expected
that their legal situation will be clarified and they will be brought before
a judge to face unspecified charges.
Amnesty International will continue to monitor their situation. However,
no further appeals are requested. Thank you to all who sent appeals on their
behalf.
