The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, said on Saturday, during his citizen broadcast, that he will organize a State Commission to investigate the murder of a leader of the Huaorani nationality and his wife, who died on March 5, attacked allegedly by the Taromenane tribe, one of the two peoples in voluntary isolation of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
This event could have caused the retaliation of the huaorani tribe, which attacked the taromenane, in an massacre that left 30 dead, on March 29.
Correa announced that the Ecuadorian Government will carry out an investigation into whether there was negligence to prevent the slaughter of natives in the Amazon, and also is considering policies to avoid new conflicts.
The rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples of the United Nations, James Anaya, called on the authorities to proceed and carry out an thorough investigation on the huaorani people.
Because of this, Correa responded that few situations can be more complex than a slaughter among uncontacted groups and that they have to figure out how to prevent this in the future.
