Mexico: Three years at risk and still no protection for Mexican defender
Human rights lawyer Alba Cruz has suffered intimidation and harassment since 2007. In early 2010 her situation deteriorated and she had no choice but to temporarily leave her home town. In spite of the repeated attacks, the authorities have failed to grant her any meaningful protection. Human rights defenders in Mexico are urging the government to fulfil its overdue promise to adopt and implement an effective protection mechanism for all human rights defenders at risk.
