Equatorial Guinea: A missed opportunity to restore respect for human rights
This report presents AI's concern about the escalation of human rights violations in Equatorial Guinea in 1993, both before and after the elections held in November. It presents details of some 30 cases of arbitrary arrest, focusing on the arrests and other violations which took place in August and September. At least 130 people were arrested, most were severely tortured. Other violations during this period included deaths in detention, unfair trials, and political killings. Dozens of people were arrested and two people unlawfully killed on Annobon Island in a dispute between local people and the authorities. In Malabo, scores of soldiers were arrested and tortured; one of them, Pedro Motu Mamiaga, died in detention. Other concerns include arrests for listening to foreign radio stations or reading opposition publications and repression of relatives of government critics.
