The Law Society has sent a letter to Colombian authorities to express grave concern about death threats – and other security incidents – against the lawyer Germán Romero Sánchez.

Mr. Romero Sánchez legally represents victims of serious human rights violations, such as extrajudicial executions, in cases brought against high-ranking active and retired military officers. The Law Society urged the Colombian authorities to comply with international legal obligations to protect the life and physical integrity of the lawyer.
