Africa: Anti-Corruption Fight in Peril – Crackdown on Anti-Corruption Human Rights Defenders in West and Central Africa

This report presents the emerging body of evidence of severe repression of anti-corruption HRDs in West and Central Africa, a region where such cases remain largely under-reported and one that is characterized by a culture of impunity and lack of accountability for human rights violations. It focuses on 19 countries covered by Amnesty International’s West and Central Africa Regional Office, and includes 31 cases of repression of anti-corruption HRDs identified in some of those countries since 2018. These cases were selected based on a strong correlation between the work or actions of the anti-corruption HRDs and the repression they face as well as the absence of accountability and justice in the cases.
