COVID-19 arrests for religious gatherings in Chile

ADF International has filed a request for emergency cautionary measures with the Inter American Commission on Human Rights regarding the arrest and ongoing prosecution of Christian pastors for allegedly violating the COVID-19 health measures.

Currently, there is no blanket ban on religious services and gatherings, only measures on how to prevent the spread of the virus.

The pastors observed all existing measures. Previously, the health authorities were forced to reopen all Catholic churches after they had unlawfully locked them.
