墨西哥:酷刑受害人Adrián Vásquez上訴得直獲釋

3年前,Adrián Vásquez Lagunes被誤以為是毒販領袖被捕,並被當地警方施行酷刑。上月初,上訴法院在考慮其代表律師提出的證據後,認為他沒有干犯販毒指控,Adrián終獲釋離開監獄

離開監獄後,Adrián將回到家中,與其妻子及4名子女團聚,而他將會第一次看見他的幼子。

Adrián獲釋後向我們表示:「感謝每位國際特赦組織的人。我十分快樂,並感到欣慰。您們傾盡全力支持我。借此,我向們送上最大的祝福。」

我們十分感謝各位在停止酷刑運動中,聲援Adrián的每一位支持者及AI Club會員,您的行動再次改變生命。

 
Mexico: Torture victim Adrián Vásquez released from prison after the appeal 

Adrián Vásquez Lagunes was released unconditionally from prison in early December, after a state judge allowed an appeal by his lawyers and ruled that there was no evidence against him. His release comes more than three years after he was arrested and tortured by state police and accused of being a high-level drug trafficker.

Joining his wife and four children at home, Adrián Vásquez will meet his youngest child, still a baby, for the first time.

Speaking to Amnesty International after his release, Adrián Vásquez said:“Thank you very much to everyone at Amnesty. I feel very thankful, very happy. You have supported me so much and I send my best to everyone there.” 

A huge thank you to everyone who campaigned for Adrián’s release as part of the Stop Torture Campaign – your actions truly made a difference!

國際特赦組織深切哀悼Leila Alaoui與Mahamadi Ouédraogo

上週五,攝影師Leila Alaoui與司機Mahamadi Ouédraogoy於布基勒法索為國際特赦組織進行有關婦女權益拍攝工作時,被恐怖份子槍擊死亡。

在此之前,當地並未被視為高風險的地點,在任務期間,Leila一直得到國際特赦組織布基勒法索分會同事的支援,並且由布基勒法索公民Mahamadi陪同。

Leila是一位出色的的法籍摩洛哥攝影師,而Mahamadi更是國際特赦組織的好朋友,自2008年開始,在許多任務中陪伴工作人員與顧問在布基勒法索進行任務。
 
我們向Leila與Mahamadi的家人和朋友致以深切的慰問,並確保Mahamadi與Leila的家庭獲得最適當的支援。國際特赦組織的代表在醫院與他們的家人、醫生與必要的官員接洽及作出妥善的安排。

國際特赦組織譴責在布基勒法索對民眾的殘暴攻擊,造成數十名來自不同國家、擁有不同信仰的人死亡與受傷。
 

Burkina Faso: Devastating news of the deaths of Leila Alaoui and Mahamadi Ouédraogo
 
It is with great sadness that Amnesty International has learned of the tragic death of photographer Leila Alaoui and driver Mahamadi Ouédraogo, who we had sent to Burkina Faso to carry out a photographic assignment focusing on women's rights, as a result of the Al Qaeda attack in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, on last Friday.

Ouagadougou was not considered to be a high risk destination and Leila was being supported by colleagues from our national office in Burkina Faso during her assignment and accompanied by Mahamadi, a national of Burkina Faso.

Leila was a talented French-Moroccan photographer and Mahamadi has been a great friend to Amnesty International having accompanied staff and consultants on missions in the country since 2008.

We express our sincere condolences to Mahamadi and Leila's families and friends. Amnesty International's absolute priority is to ensure the best possible support for Mahamadi and Leila's families. The organization’s representatives are at the hospital liaising with her family, doctors and all necessary officials. 

We condemns the vicious attack on civilians in Ouagadougou, which has killed and injured dozens of people of many nationalities and faiths.
