Gabon: Prisoners of conscience

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 26/001/2003

Five members of the Gabonese opposition party Bongo Doit Partir ("Bongo Must Go" or BDP-Gabon Nouveau) have been detained for over one month. The leadership of the BDP has accused the authorities of holding the men hostage for political reasons. Amnesty International considers them to be prisoners of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful and legitimate expression of their political beliefs.
