Nigeria: Amicus Curiae Brief to the Community Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)
Amnesty International hopes this brief will be of assistance to the Court as it considers various legal issues in this case arising from the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials in policing a demonstration by a crowd protesting against the planned demolition of their homes, resulting in at least one person dead and 12 seriously injured; and as it interprets the provisions of relevant international human rights treaties and standards applicable in Nigeria.
