“The victims include members of the military, police, intelligence agents and militiamen,” the Observatory for Human Rights said.

For Washington and its allies, “the cases identified should be investigated promptly and transparently, those responsible should be held accountable, and these steps should be made public so that they can act as a direct measure to prevent further killings and disappearances.”
