Among the deceased is a 17-month-old baby. She remained with her detained mother until her recent release from prison, when she was handed over to another family member to be cared for.

According to the information shared by SJH), the minor lost her life due to the conditions in which she was found in the prison, the causes of death being kidney failure, liver failure and pneumonia.

El Movir also reported that on Wednesday, July 5, 13 women were released from the Apanteos prison; however, only two families had been notified of their release. Meanwhile, the day before another 30 came out from behind bars, only two families being notified again and 28 more being retained.

The NGO has called for a rally on Friday morning to demand an end to arbitrary arrests and deaths in prisons during the emergency regime. This would take place in the monument of El Salvador del Mundo, in the capital of the country.

The Exception Regime, which under the pretext of dealing with organized crime suspends constitutional guarantees such as the right to defense of detainees, the inviolability of telecommunications and the maximum term of provisional detention of 72 hours, was originally approved at the end of March 2022 and has been extended by the Legislative Assembly of the Latin American country for the twelfth time.
