Equatorial Guinea: Summary executions in Equatorial Guinea
Political opponents of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema of Equatorial Guinea face abduction, detention, torture and execution. In August 2010, four men were executed within an hour of being sentenced to death by a military court in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea’s capital. They had been abducted from Benin where they were living as refugees. In the same trial, two prisoners of conscience (who had earlier been acquitted) were jailed for 20 years.
