Djibouti: Further information on unfair trial / prisoners of conscience
On 6 October 1999, Moussa Ahmed Idriss was found guilty of a new charge of violently resisting arrest. Nineteen of his relatives and supporters were found guilty of the same charge and also imprisoned. Amnesty International is concerned that they did not receive a fair trial. An appeal date of 20 November has now been set for Ali Meidal Wais and Daher Ahmed Farah. Both men were found guilty at a summary trial on 2 September 1999.
