Following arrests of people suspected of supporting armed groups opposed to the government of President François Bozizé, Amnesty International delegates visited the Central African Republic (CAR). Amnesty International is publishing this report to inform the CAR authorities and the international community of its concerns regarding the violation of the detainees' rights. In particular, the authorities must ensure that the detainees are treated humanely, and released if they are not charged or if they are acquitted by a competent court after a trial that accords with international fair trial standards.
