Janeth Foronda Torress, a government official in Criminal
Investigations, met with CPTers Nils Dybvig and William Payne to
request information related to four crimes of homophobic violence she
is currently investigatingâ€¦
The Barrancabermejan youth organization Legion of Affection, which had
received death threats from a paramilitary group the previous month
(see August 2008 Update), held a well-attended press conference in
response to those threats.Â The young people described the nature of
their work, how they respond to threats with courage and humor, and
concluded by performing a cultural dance.
In the afternoon, two men went to the home of a leader of the Women's
Popular Organization (OFP), asking where she was and insisting they
knew how to find her.Â Because of this potential threat, the following
day CPTers Jenny Dillon and Stewart Vriesinga accompanied this leader
to her meetings in the region.
