By Amnesty International, , Index number: AMR 38/005/2003

On 14 March 2001, seven young men and boys, aged between 15 and 20 years old, were killed by police officers of the Crime Management Unit in Braeton, near Kingston, Jamaica. Their deaths marked a continuation of killings in suspicious circumstances by the Jamaican Constabulary Force. This report details and examines the flaws in the investigation into the deaths of the Braeton Seven and the evidence that their killings amounted to extrajudicial executions.
