Amnesty International has received reports of the detention of Fidel Angel Quintanilla, a trade union leader of the Unión Nacional de Campesinos (National Union of Peasant Workers), on 12 July 1988, by members of the Fuerzas Aereas (Air Force) in Soyapango, San Salvador department. He was taken to Air Force headquarters in Ilopango, San Salvador department. Although his detention has been acknowledged by the Air Force, there are fears that he may be ill-treated while in custody.
