Chad: Death penalty / Fear of imminent execution

, Index number: AFR 20/001/2004

Nineteen men were sentenced to death on 30 July 2004 following their conviction by the criminal court in the capital, N'Djaména, of the murder, or complicity in the murder, of 21 peasant farmers who were killed in Maïbogo, southern Chad, in March 2004, as well as the wounding of 10 other peasant farmers and the theft of livestock. Amnesty International is concerned that the men could be executed imminently.
