Dear General Attorney,
I am writing to express my concern about attacks against Quelvin Jimenez and the Xinca People. On 23 June, a group of armed people disrupted a meeting of Xinca authorities in Jumaytepeque, Santa Rosa, threatening and beating some participants. Quelvin reported threats against him and gunshots. He escaped, but a vehicle stopped him. Three people got out accusing Quelvin of attacking them. Police took them to a police station in Barberena, and later released Quelvin without charges.
On 24 June, neighbors warned Quelvin of a vehicle circling his house. He called the police requesting protection but was told they did not have patrols available.
I call you to conduct a prompt, independent, and impartial investigation into the attacks against Quelvin Jimenez and Xinca People, and to bring those responsible to justice. I also ask you to guarantee his protection according to his wishes and needs.
