Peru: Human rights organizations demand justice for the victims of Bagua and a fair trial for the defendants

In the coming days, it is expected that a judgment will be rendered in the so-called “Devil’s Curve” trial against 53 people, including members and leaders of indigenous communities accused of killing 12 police officers and wounding 18 others in 2009, in Bagua, Amazonas Region.

The undersigned organizations have been following this case since 2009 and we urge the authorities to ensure scrupulous respect for the defendants’ right to due process in this search for justice. This will be the only way to guarantee the right to truth, justice and adequate reparation for the victims and their families.
