By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: President Nayib Bukele and the Salvadoran Government have extended the controversial state of emergency for the fourth time, BBC reports.

The State of Emergency was first declared in March when the government began its crackdown on gangs. The extension of the measures will go through to August 23, 2022.

Since then, 46,000 people have been arrested and many are fleeing the Central American nation.

Several human rights groups have called on the President to respect the human rights and dignity of those being detained.

Salvadoran rights group Cristosal said it had documented 63 cases of people arrested during the state of emergency who died in detention.

But, Bukele says that he is committed to defending the Salvadoran people and “ensuring that the lives of these agents were not lost in vain.”

Surveys demonstrate that 70% of Salvadorans support the government’s decision to reduce gang crime.

  1. This leader must have been incompetent to get himself backed into a corner where he feels his best option is a 4ty state of emergency. Terrible strategy. I wonder how many people tried to advise him as to a better way and he simply would not listen. Very sad.

      Dear Gretchen, I am not sure you are a real person. However, if you are, I would ask you, “Have you ever lived where gangs continuously terrorized you and murdered thousand of innocents?” If you did, would you want your leader to declare a state of emergency? Put yourself in the shoes of those folks and you will understand the high approval rating of this leader. The gangs “backed him in to a corner”. Look at the tremendous decrease in homicides in El Salvador since his efforts to eradicate the gangs.

    Nayib Bukele represents an excellent case of pragmatic leadership. The corruption and evil of previous administrations is being thoroughly corrected by his impressive show of resolve and successful intervention strategies. It is time for Belize to follow his example. Our State of Emergencies are merely power plays to save our political leaders’ faces. Instead we must: 1. Immediately expand prison capacity 2. Arrest every single known gang member 3. Make gang symbols and related items illegal 4. Allow more LAW-ABIDING Belizeans to own firearms to defend themselves 5. Place an independent watch-dog group to monitor the police department to ensure a state of non-corruption
