Angola: Deteriorating health of Muatxihina Chamumbala and other political detainees in Conduege Prison: Health Professional Action

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 12/010/2010

Amnesty International remains seriously concerned about the health of 37 political detainees held in Conduege prison in Dundo, Lunda Norte Province in Angola. Their health continues to deteriorate due to the persisting unsanitary conditions, insufficient and inadequate food and water and lack of medical treatment. Most, if not all, have been intermittently ill since they have been in detention. Amnesty International is concerned the health of these detainees will continue to deteriorate if needed medical attention is not provided and prison conditions are not improved.
