Americas' top rights commission urges Argentina to free activist | Reuters

BUENOS AIRES The Inter-American Commision on Human Rights on Friday called on Argentina to release social activist Milagro Sala, who has been jailed since the beginning of the year in the northwestern province of Jujuy. The commission, part of the Organization of American States (OAS), said Argentina should "give prompt attention" to recommendations from a U.N. body in October that called Sala's pre-trial detention "unwarranted and arbitrary."Sala, the leader of the Tupac Amaru social movement, was detained in January and accused of instigating criminal acts after leading a protest in front of provincial government buildings. #India #Business #Middle East #Health #markets #Crime #Foreign policy
