Salvadoran prosecutor rules out human rights violations

Salvadoran prosecutor rules out human rights violations

San Salvador, Oct 25 (Prensa Latina) The Attorney General of El Salvador, Rodolfo Delgado, on Tuesday ruled out the violation of human rights during the capture of criminals under the emergency regime.

He said that during the validity of such dispositions the due process and the human rights of the detainees were respected, something that defenders and relatives of those arrested doubt.

Delgado said in all cases the law was complied with, which was demonstrated with the liberation of nearly 800 prisoners out of a total of 56,000 after the government offensive against the gangs it classified as terrorists.

Do not tell me that fundamental rights are being violated, when the National Civil Police (PNC) has detained over 56,000 people and the level of confrontation with criminal gangs was minimal, the prosecutor said.

On the other hand, official sources indicate that since the application of the exception regime seven months ago and through the work of the Police, the Armed Forces and the District Attorney’s Office, 55,841 gang members have been captured, which has favored an environment of security for the population and, in some areas, reactivated the economy.

In this regard, Minister of Security Gustavo Villatoro was categorical in stating on social media that the war against these gangs continues, something that reaffirms remarks by the highest Salvadoran authorities that are committed to putting away the estimated 76,000 gang members operating in this country.
