UA 335/92 - Colombia: threats and harassment: Manuel Cepeda Vargas, Aida Abella, Alvaro Vasquez del Real
Manuel Cepeda Vargas, Aida Abella and Alvaro Vasquez del Real, opposition leaders, have been receiving death threats.

On 26 October, the UP reportedly received information indicating that members of a paramilitary group had been contracted to kill leaders of the UP and PCC. AI is seriously concerned for their safety.
