Africa: Stop enforced disappearances in Africa
International Day of the Disappeared, 30 August 2009, is the time to demand justice for victims of enforced disappearances. In this document Amnesty International is urging governments to ratify the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance: only two African countries have so far done so. In some countries in Africa enforced disappearance is used in course of policing activities; and in some, enforced disappearances are used as a means of retaliation against a particular political or ethnic group. This document includes illustrative examples.
