Due to the celebration, today, of the Universal Day of Human Rights, established.
by the United Nations (UN), a report prepared by the Ecumenical Commission of Human Rights (Cedhu for its Spanish acronym,) notes that the country’s main violations of human rights are femicide, the criminalisation of social protest, the deficiency in education and health care, assaults and torture.
The report examines cases from January to October of this year. In this, 59 homicides were registered, of which 48 answer to femicide. There were 2 extrajudicial executions and 4 deaths in custody; 15.131 physical assaults and tortured victims.
As for the data on allegations of violations of freedom of expression, Cedhu criticises the State for using criminal offences to sanction those who criticise government actions.
Several public and private entities developed several agendas today to celebrate 65 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
