Colombia: Free jailed trade unionist Rosalba Gaviria Toro
Colombia: Free jailed trade unionist Rosalba Gaviria Toro Rosalba Gaviria Toro.On 9th March 2009 Rosalba Gaviria Toro, a member
of FENSUAGRO, the Colombian Agricultural Workers’ Trade Union was detained and accused of ‘rebellion’. She has been imprisoned since then in Villa Cristina jail in the city of Armenia, without being convicted of any crime. Rosalba has been an activetrade unionist and human rights activist for many years, however, the Colombian authorities have described her as a ‘terrorist’ – jeopardizing her right to a fair judicial process. There is no legitimate evidence against Rosalba and it would seem that, like so many other political prisoners in Colombia, she has been jailed to silence her and prevent her from carrying out her legitimate work in defense of trade union and human rights.
