Mozambique: Licence to kill: Police accountability in Mozambique
Abstract The safeguards and police accountability systems currently in place in Mozambique do not prevent human rights violations by the police. As long as the situation remains as it is, human rights violations committed by the police will continue with impunity. Amnesty International is gravely concerned at the prevalence of excessive use of force, extrajudicial executions and torture and other ill-treatment committed by Mozambican police. In this report, Amnesty International brings to light inadequacies of the police accountability system and makes recommendations for its improvement in order to reduce the incidence of human rights violations by the police.
