Mexico: Environmental defender must be released: Ildefonso Zamora

, Index number: AMR 41/3978/2016

Ildefonso Zamora, an environment and territory defender from an Indigenous community in central Mexico, has been detained since November 2015 in an apparent attempt to stop him from speaking out against logging in the Great Water Forest in his ancestral territory. He is accused of a 2012 robbery but the charge is unsubstantiated and seems to be politically motivated. He is a prisoner of conscience and must be immediately and unconditionally released.
