Since the beginning of November, members of dhColombia have been surveilled by unknown men outside their homes and office. dhColombia is an advocacy organization that provides legal support to victims of human rights violations and seeks accountability from prominent military members, public forces and multinationals. In August, a member of dhColombia faced communication espionage, theft of sensitive information and death threats. On 4 October, dhColombia requested protection measures from the National Protection Unit (UNP) and has yet to receive a response. We are urging the UNP to grant dhColombia members the protection measures they requested.TAKE ACTION:
