Urgent Action outcome: Attacks on Ysati community under investigation
The Prosecutor’s Office began an investigation into the March attacks against the Ysati indigenous community “3 de Julio”. The Paraguayan Institute for Indigenous Affairs (INDI) provided them with humanitarian assistance on 5 April 2019, reissued the identity documents the community lost during the attack, and filed a formal complaint before the Public Prosecutor's Office for the alleged misuse of the criminal justice system against Ava Guaraní indigenous communities.
Public campaign on behalf of the Ysaty community, including the Urgent Action appeals and meetings between Amnesty International members and the authorities contributed to positive developments after the attacks, their current overall situation and long-term land case. We will continue to monitor the status of the investigations into the March attacks as well as the situation of the community and will react if further action is required.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
