Man arrested in connection with the murders of Bety Cariño and Jyri Jaakkola

A breakthrough has been reached in the tragic case of Alberta 'Bety' Cariño Trujillo and Finnish human rights activist Jyri Jaakkola. Both were killed in an ambush on 27th April 2010 while participating in a humanitarian convoy bound for the indigenous community of San Juan Copala .


On 21st January 2015 Elias Cruz Merino, leader of the Movement for Triqui Unification and Struggle (MULT) was arrested as one of their alleged killers. However, there are still ten more outstanding warrants to be made. Since last April the National Association of Democratic Lawyers reported that those responsible for these acts were fully identified, however the Mexican government has refused to implement the corresponding arrest warrants.

This is a first small step in the right direction but justice for these murders has not been reached yet.

LASC supports the struggle for justice led by the family of Bety' Cariño and Jyri Jaakkola and many other organisation.

Trade agreement with Colombia and Peru tests our commitment to human rights

 

"The recent review by the Government of our foreign policy, The Global Island, strongly reaffirms a central commitment to human rights. This is to be welcomed. Ireland has earned an enviable reputation as a defender of human rights. However, if these commitments are to be realised, they must stand the test of what we do in practice. The first significant test comes today as the Dáil debates ratification of the EU Free Trade Agreement with Colombia and Peru".

 

Ireland - stand up for human rights in Colombia

This week, the Dáil will debate the Free Trade Agreement between the EU and Colombia (and Peru). Stand up for human rights and ask them to reject it!
