Honduras: Fear for safety

, Index number: AMR 37/002/2007

Donny Reyes, treasurer of LGBT rights group "Asociación Arcoiris" (Rainbow Association), was reportedly arbitrarily detained by police in Tegucigalpa, on 18 March. The officers beat him and then took him to a police station where they left him in a cell for six and a half hours, where other detainees repeatedly raped and beat him, allegedly encouraged by a police officer. Donny Reyes has lodged a formal complaint about this. Since then police appear to have attempted to intimidate him. Amnesty International believes that he, and other members of the organisation he heads, may be in grave danger.
