This morning, members of the Accompaniment delegation, responding to a request for human rights accompaniment, arrived at the police station where four teachers have been detained since yesterday. Other concerned citizens and representatives of the human rights community gathered outside of the police station this morning as well. Police, in riot gear had closed off both ends of the block. Eventually, delegation members were granted access to the jailed teachers as well as their attorney.
Yesterday at noon, the four teachers - Elmer Joel Tejeda Hernández, Darwin Edgardo Funes Irías, Jesús Isidro López and Ansar Alesky Torres Alvarez were arrested in a COPEMH (Association of Secondary Teachers Union) vehicle in a local neighborhood following a large teacher's demonstration. The four were arrested some distance from the protest. Charges against them have been changed several times so it is unclear what they are being charged with.
