Togo: Appeal for the reopening of the media
This appeal provides a chronology of the events leading to the closure of five radio stations, a two-month ban on public demonstrations and the intimidation of directors of the media and of journalists. While recognising the state's right to ensure respect for public order, Amnesty International believes that this intimidation, these threats and censorship represent unacceptable attacks on the freedom of expression guaranteed by regional and international treaties ratified by Togo.
