Mali: "We haven't seen our cellmates since": Enforced disappearances and torture of soldiers and police officers opposed to the junta
Since the beginning of 2012, Mali has been caught in a turmoil which has shaken the very foundations of the state. The south of the country is in the grip of political instability following a military coup. Serious human rights violations, committed by soldiers supporting the junta, targeted military and police officers arrested after an attempted counter-coup. These violations include torture, extrajudicial executions and enforced disappearances. This report documents the disappearances, extrajudicial executions and repeated cases of torture, all committed with impunity by soldiers loyal to Captain Sanogo’s junta.
