Francisco Pana Coc, an evangelical priest, claims police burst into his home as he recuperated from a bout of malaria and took him to jail accusing him of aggravated theft of police guns during the 15 August 2014, clashes between locals and the Police. Mr Pana Coc spent 11 days in jail before he was released. On 15 August 2014, the local Mayan population, angered by the arrest of two leaders of a peasant's human rights organisation, the 'Comite de Desarrollo Campesino' (CODECA), blocked a road in protest and a violent confrontation with the police followed. Three residents died and many more were injured and arrested during the clashes.
