Relatives demand the release of a Bajo Lempa teacher held under emergency

The family of Juan Alberto Arana Hernandez, a 44-year-old teacher who teaches third-cycle classes at Las Mesitas del Bajo Lempa School Center in Jicilisco, Usulután, is requesting his release because they believe his arrest was unjustified.

Arana was captured by the National Civil Police (PNC) on the night of 19 May, with his relatives claiming that the detention was arbitrary and without investigation.

The arrest of the teacher took place while he was resting in a swing in the corridor of his house, police officers apprehended him for allegedly collaborating with criminal structures under the guise of illegal groups. “They detained him alone and in the capture report they said he was detained on the road with another group of people, which is not true. They took him away without doing anything. A relative of the detainee, who requested identity anonymity, said, “They turned him in until it was time to capture him.”

He said, “In a phone call (anonymous complaint to the police), he accused her of being an accomplice. We are saddened by his arrest as his wife had left the country with their son in 2016 due to threats. She was left in charge of her other three daughters, who have been feeling her absence since she was taken into custody.”

Arana Hernandez was taken to Usulutan Bartolinas, then transferred to Izalco prison, Sonsonate, and currently, he said, he is in La Esperanza (Mariona) prison in San Salvador. The family asks for his release so that he can continue his diabetes and chronic gastritis treatment.

The detainee’s family has a document certifying that the teacher has no criminal record and also letters and signatures from community and religious leaders of the El Ángel community, where they certify that the teacher does not belong to criminal structures.
