Opposition leader Mohamed Lemine Chbih Ould Cheikh Melaïnine was arrested and is now imprisoned in harsh conditions. He has a heart condition which requires constant medication, and Amnesty International is seriously concerned for his health. Two other men who were arrested with him, Mokhtar Ould Haïbetna and Bouba Ould Hassena, are facing the same charges of conspiracy. Amnesty International considers all three men to be prisoners of conscience.
