Gambia: Dangerous to dissent: Human rights under threat in Gambia
In December 2016, Gambia holds Presidential elections amid serious violations of the rights of opposition members, journalists, human rights defenders, civil society organizations and voters to express themselves freely and without fear of reprisal. This report highlights consistent patterns of violations against these groups since the last Presidential elections in November 2011. Amnesty International calls on the government of Gambia to act with urgency to safeguard the human rights of all Gambians in the run-up to December’s elections and far beyond.
