By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Salvadoran authorities confirmed on Friday, June 3, 2022, that there were no reported homicides for the first 3 days of June.
Authorities say that the war against gang violence continues; meanwhile, international organizations are calling on the Salvadoran government to respect the human rights and dignity of those being detained.
Amnesty International reports that about 18 people have died in state custody during El Salvador’s gang crackdown.
Amnesty International noted that the Central American nation is ‘committing widespread and flagrant violations of human rights and criminalizing people living in poverty.’
In addition, the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (IACHR), an agency of the Organization of American States (OAS) reiterated its call to ensure that actions related to citizen and prison security policies are implemented in El Salvador.
However, local surveys in El Salvador demonstrate that 70% of Salvadorans support the government’s decision to reduce gang crime.
Authorities in El Salvador have reportedly detained over 36,000 people including 1,190 minors since the beginning of the state of emergency in late March.
