Angola: Provisions of the ‘draft criminal code’ are incompatible with Angola’s human rights obligations

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 12/001/2013

This document sets out some of Amnesty International’s key initial concerns with the Angolan Draft Criminal Code in the context of Angola’s international and regional human rights obligations, particularly the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Amnesty International believes the code, as presently drafted, is inconsistent with Angola’s international human rights obligations, and that significant revisions are therefore necessary.
