Murder of Indigenous Leaders in Guatemala

Hina Jilani, UN Special Envoy for Human Rights and Rodolfo Stavenhagen, Special Envoy for Indigenous Populations, have condemned the killings in December of two Guatemalan indigenous leaders, Antonio Pop Caal and Diego Velasquez Brito.

They issued a joint statement calling on the Guatemalan authorities “to continue making the necessary efforts to clarify the circumstances of these assassinations through a thorough investigation”. The UNO is “deeply concerned” that human rights violations have been committed in Guatemala against the indigenous population.
