Urgent Action outcome: Killing of Samir Flores under investigation
The Attorney General of the State of Morelos has opened a criminal investigation into the killing of environmental, land and territory human rights defender Samir Flores Soberanes. Mexico’s National Protection Mechanism has also granted protection measures to several other members of his movement.
We believe that the public campaign on behalf of Samir Flores Soberanes, including appeals sent by Amnesty International members, contributed to these positive developments.
We will continue to monitor the status of the investigations into his killing and will react if further action is required.
NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
