El Salvador: After having spent more than seven years in prison, Sonia Tábora was released following a review of her sentence. The judges did not admit to any judicial error and did not award her compensation or exonerate her. She had been sentenced to 30 years in prison for murder after going into premature labor. Her family had found her collapsed on the floor, hemorrhaging, and in a state of shock, and had taken her to a health center in search of help. Her attending physician accused her of provoking an abortion and reported her to the police.
