Juan Almonte Herrera是多明尼加人權委員會的成員,自從2009年9月28日失蹤至今。據報導,他是在首都聖多明哥市遭到武裝警員綁架。

Juan Almonte是在前往會計師事務所上班途中遭到綁架。去年10月,警方在當地一輛汽車中發現兩具被燒焦的屍體。Juan Almonte的姊妹指認其中一具是他的屍體,然而卻遭DNA檢驗結果推翻。家屬強烈質疑檢驗的程序。

Juan Almonte的親屬與律師均指稱受到警方跟監,跟監者將汽車停放在他們住所對街,從中窺視。他的姊妹曾接到匿名電話,威脅她不得公開失蹤訊息。當家屬向政府申訴遭到警方騷擾,政府竟指派同一個警局負責維護他們的安全。

美洲人權委員會(Inter-American Commission on Human Rights)已指出多明尼加當局對本案的調查顯有不當,並批評該國政府未能採取適當措施搜尋Juan Almonte的下落。

2010年5月,美洲人權法院(Inter-American Court of Human Rights)已下令多明尼加政府為Juan Almonte的家屬和律師提供保護,然而他們至今仍未獲得任何保護。

請寫信給多明尼加內政暨警務部長,要求該國政府查明Juan Almonte Herrera在2009年9月28日被綁架後的下落。呼籲就他的失蹤案件展開徹底、公正且獨立的調查;並以有效措施保護他的家屬與律師不受威脅或騷擾。聲援信請寄到下列地址:

Juan Almonte Herrera

Dominican Republic: Human rights Committee member missing

Juan Almonte Herrera, a member of the Dominican Committee of Human Rights, has been missing since 28 September 2009. He was reportedly abducted in the capital, Santo Domingo, by armed police officers.

Juan Almonte was walking to the office where he worked as an accountant when he was abducted. The following month, two charred bodies were found in a car in the city. One of the bodies was identified by Juan’s sister as being that of Juan Almonte. However, DNA tests were negative. The family has contested how the tests were carried out.

Juan Almonte’s relatives and lawyers have reported being under surveillance by individuals identified by eyewitnesses as police officers. They have been followed by people in cars and watched from the street in front of their house. His sister received anonymous telephone calls asking her to stop publicizing her brother’s disappearance. When they reported the incidents to the authorities, they were told to seek protection from the same police body that they claim is harassing them.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has repeatedly described the investigation by the Dominican authorities as totally inadequate and has criticized their failure to adopt concrete measures to establish Juan Almonte’s whereabouts.

In May 2010, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ordered the Dominican state to provide protection to Juan Almonte’s family and lawyers. However, they have yet to receive protection.

Please write, urging the authorities to establish the whereabouts of Juan Almonte Herrera, who was abducted on 28 September 2009. Call for a full, impartial and independent investigation into his enforced disappearance, and for his family and lawyers to receive adequate protection from threats and harassment. Send appeals to:
