Human Rights Watch assisted several threatened human rights prosecutors in Colombia, one of whom became the first Colombian prosecutor involved with human rights cases to receive direct assistance from the United States to gain political asylum and resettle in the country. We brought these cases to the direct attention of Colombia's president and the US ambassador, urging their personal intervention to protect the lives of public officials who had investigated key cases implicating the military in collaboration with paramilitary groups.
