Urgent Action: Torture Survivor Denied Covid-19 Support (Mexico: UA 101.20)June 18, 2020
Adrian Vásquez Lagunes was diagnosed with COVID-19 on 16 June. He survived torture and 3 years unjust imprisonment in Tijuana (Northern Mexico). The authorities have failed to provide him with reparations mandated by the Baja California State Human Rights and Citizen Protection Ombudsman’s Office in 2015. We are demanding that authorities urgently ensure that Adrian Vásquez receives health and social security coverage, an emergency fund, and that his full reparation package is finalized.
