It is now a year since the closure of The Independent and arbitrary arrest and illegal detention of three members of its staff. Amnesty International calls for the immediate reopening of The Independent, and the immediate unconditional release of Chief Manneh, a reporter of the Daily Observer, whom Amnesty International considers a prisoner of conscience, who has been held in incommunicado detention without charge or trial for close to 9 months.
