Angola: Death of Muatxihina Chamumbala in Conduege Prison and concern for the remaining 32 prisoners
Amnesty International has learned of the death of Muatxihina Chamumbala in hospital on 3 October 2010. Muatxihina Chamumbala was due to be tried on 12 October 2010, together with 33 others, on charges of crimes against the state, though these have not been specified. Muatxihina Chamumbala had been ill since his imprisonment in April 2009. Amnesty International remains concerned about the health of this group of detainees who continue to be intermittently sick and do not appear to receive medical treatment unless they become seriously ill.
