President of Bolivia
Luis Arce Catacora
La Paz – Bolivia

Dear President Arce,
I am gravely concerned over the safety of Amparo Carvajal, president of the Permanent Assembly on Human
Rights (APDHB), who has been sleeping for days on the roof of the APDHB´s office with no access to water or a bathroom. Dozens of police officers block the entrance and remain stationed outside. Amparo Carvajal had already spent weeks sleeping on the street outside the APDHB´s office in almost freezing temperatures. On July 12, a constitutional judge ordered the people occupying the APDHB offices to cease the psychological intimidation of Amparo and allow her access to a bathroom, for her health and safety.
I call on you to urgently ensure the health, physical integrity and safety of Amparo Carvajal and her colleagues, ensuring compliance with the Resolution 56/2023 of the Constitutional judge of La Paz.
