OAS human rights commission calls on El Salvador to respect human rights

Posted: Saturday, June 4, 2022. 11:19 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Friday, the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (IACHR), an agency of the Organization of American States (OAS) reiterated its call on the Salvadoran government amidst the gang crackdown in the Central American nation.

Thousands of Salvadorans have been detained during a nationwide state of emergency as the government continues the fight against gang violence.

“The Commission reiterates its call to the State to ensure that actions related to citizen and prison security policies are implemented within the limits and procedures that guarantee respect for human rights and dignity,” the IACHR said in a statement. The IACHR also referenced El Salvador’s “international obligation to ensure judicial guarantees” and guarantee access to justice for all detainees.

Authorities in El Salvador have detained over 36,000 people including 1,190 minors while 18 people have died in police custody.

 Amnesty International has stated that the government was committing a ‘flagrant’ violation of human rights. However, surveys demonstrate that 70% of Salvadorans support the government’s decision to reduce gang crime.
