Jamaica, Investigate Killing of Human Rights Activist!
Attorney Clover Graham, Jamaica’s honorary liaison for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and passionate human rights activist, was abducted and found dead in tall weeds with her throat slit.
Graham worked with the UN agency from 1998 until her death, where she counseled asylum seekers and helped refugees to Jamaica find jobs and housing. Those who knew her said she was always willing to give whatever she could to help refugees and asylum seekers in Jamaica. Besides her UN work, she worked at a legal aid clinic at the University of the West Indies’ Law School and lectured at several universities.
It’s extremely important that whoever is responsible for the death of this dedicated human rights defender is found and brought to justice. Please tell the Jamaica Constabulary Force that they should make sure her investigation is fair, efficient, and done to the best of the ability of all involved.

Wow. This is so, so terrible. Really, there are no words. My thoughts are with her friends and family.
