Statement from Ambassador James D. Nealon on the Announcement of Arrests in the Murder of Berta Cáceres

We welcome the announcement of arrests in the murder of Berta Cáceres.

From the very beginning, we have called for a thorough investigation into Caceres’ murder – one that followed the evidence and that would lead to those who committed the crime, including the intellectual authors.

We will continue to follow closely as the suspects arrested today enter the judicial process, as well as any future arrests, and will continue to support this investigation in any way we can.
