JURIST – IACHR calls on Argentina to release social activist Parliamentarian

“The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on Friday urged Argentina to release activist Milagro Sala who has been detained since the beginning of the year in the Jujuy province. Milagro Sala, an elected parliamentarian, was detained in January after participating in protests. The commission held that the detainment violates international rights, which uphold protests as legitimate forms of speech. They called on Argentina and the province of Jujuy to end her pretrial detainment.”
