Argentina: Authorities to decriminalize police violence

Argentine authorities announce plan to partially decriminalize use of force by police in non-life threatening situations

26 févr. 11h02 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 25/2/2018, 12h00 until 26/2/2018, 11h59 (America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires). COUNTRY/REGION Argentina

Event

Argentinean President Mauricio Macri has proposed a plan to partially decriminalize the use of force by police officers in non-life threatening situations. Previously Argentinean police officers have only been permitted to use force in cases of "legitimate self defense." While human rights groups have condemned the move for allegedly giving security forces tacit approval for violence, authorities say the change is necessary to protect police officers that pursue violent criminals.

Advice

Individuals in Argentina are advised to adhere to instructions issued by the local authorities, including police, at all times.
