Colombia: Renewed Threats against Members of MOVICE and Other Human Rights Defenders

This article, originally published by Front Line Defenders on December 16th, 2014, discusses the continued death threats against a number of human rights defenders, including members of Movimiento de Victimas de Crimenes de Estado – MOVICE (Movement of Victims of State Crimes).

On the morning of 9 December 2014, a pamphlet containing death threats against a number of human rights defenders, including members of Movimiento de Victimas de Crimenes de Estado – MOVICE (Movement of Victims of State Crimes), was handed to a human rights defender at the Centro de Memoria Paz y Reconciliación (Centre for Memory Peace and Reconciliation) in the city of Bogotá. The pamphlet was signed by the Águilas Negras paramilitary group, and as well as members of MOVICE, it also targeted other human rights defenders, victims of state crimes, employees of the High Council for Victims in Bogotá and independent media outlets.
