This report examines the violations of fundamental rights committed in the days preceding and following the presidential election of April 2005. These atrocities forced more than 30,000 Togolese to seek refuge in the bordering countries of Benin and Ghana. Testimony was gathered from Togolese victims, who had been wounded or who had lost close relatives in different regions of the country. The report ends with a series of recommendations to the Togolese authorities, the international community, especially the African Union (AU), and other countries that provide military assistance to Togo, including France.
