Amnesty International is very concerned about the health of scores of Bubi prisoners, including Emilio Ribas Esada, Gregorio Bomuagasi, Milagrosa Cheba (f), Alejandro Mbe Bita Rope and approximately 80 others prisoners convicted in May 1998. They are being held in appalling conditions in Malabo prison. Eleven have been held in incommunicado detention since May 1998. On 20 October 1999, a detainee in the prison, Digno Sepa Tobachi, "Elako", died as a result of torture and lack of medical care.
