Den mexikanske människorättsaktivisten Gustavo Castro Soto, enda vittnet till mordet på urfolksledaren Barta Cáceres den 3 mars, kunde återvända till Mexiko den 1 april 2016. Castro Soto hade kvarhållits mot sin vilja i Honduras på order av honduranska myndigheter.
Gustavo Castro har skickat en hälsning till Amnesty och tackar för stödet.
“At last I am in Mexico, free after being held in Honduras, where the government illegally held me for being the only witness of Berta Caceres’ killing. Her murderers also tried to kill me, but I survived. We know that the harassment against Human Rights Defenders is on the rise, but we will not stop our fight for a world where everybody can live in. If there was something giving me confidence and certainty when I was illegally held, it was to know that there were thousands of Amnesty International supporters all across the world with their eyes on Honduras. It is very impressive to feel the force and the support of Amnesty International. Thank you for setting me free!”
