We have come to know of another case, Ignacio Matus Carrasco, a 23-year-old young man arrested in the early hours of 22 October, who has already served two months in El Manzano Prison after being arrested for taking part in a pot banging protest a few blocks from his home. He is now falsely accused of carrying shotgun ammunition and violating the law on arms control.

He was brutally beaten by members of the 6th commissariat of San Pedro de la Costa, he was unconscious on two occasions after being kicked on his body, punched with fists and beaten on his genitals. In addition, he received death threats, and in the report on his injuries, it was said that Ignacio “had fallen” and that is why he was injured. The INDH has already filed a complaint for torture.

There are a number of irregularities in his case, so it is necessary to support disseminating and accompanying the next hearing that we will be informing about in this media outlet.
