The Gilberto Soto Murder Mystery

The Gilberto Soto murder case continue to be a rallying point for labor and other activists in El Salvador. I have not seen any new comments from the Salvadoran authorities, but El Salvador's Procurator for Human Rights, reports that she is receiving death threats since she issued a report criticizing the police investigation of the murder.

There is a fairly new article at American Prospect Online which does not shed any new light on the crime, but does provide some background about Soto's emigration from El Salvador and how he became an organizer for truck drivers in the container shipping industry.

You can find many articles in my archives about how this story has developed since the murder last November.
