    The Ministry of the Interior will soon be presenting a comprehensive protection policy enshrining guarantees for social and community leaders, journalists and human rights defenders. The announcement came a few days after the Ombudsman’s Office revealed that 555 social leaders were killed between 2016 and 2019. The government consulted with sub-national governments, civil society organizations, and international bodies such as the UN Human Rights Office and the OAS in the proces to draw up the measure.
