The Hague, November 26, 2007.

Honorable President Alvaro Colom

On November 25 is the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women.
We, the Dutch and World citizens, denounce:

That all women have the rights of protection and justice
That Feminicide in Guatemala keeps rising alarmingly
There is stigmatization of the victims and impunity for the criminals
That several international organisms, among them Amnesty International, characterizes the measures taken by the Guatemalan government as insufficient and ineffective.
That the work of human rights and womens organizations is hindered by threats and violence against them, families and friends.

We would like to refer as well to the A6-0338/2007 Report approved by the European Parliament on the date of 10-11-2007, and the concrete measures defined in this document.
We reiterate the close relation between Netherlands and Guatemala with respect to cooperation for development and democracy construction.

Therefore, we request you as the new president of Guatemala to:
Publicly condemn the kidnap and murderers of women and girls, and instruct governmental officials to stop minimizing or denying the seriousness of these crimes
Immediately conduct exhaustive and effective investigations on all the cases of girls and womens kidnaps and murderers in Guatemala, and bring to justice the people responsible of these crimes
Reinforce and improve the coordination and assignment resources to all the state institutions that are in charged of violence against women, and in particular, to the Attorney General and Womens Issues Ministry
Elaborate and implement adequate programs for the prevention of kidnaps and murderers of women and girls
Condemn and investigate all the abuses that are committed against human rights activists, which endanger their security
Respond to all the recommendations in the European Parliament report mentioned above.
