Guinea Bissau: Fear for safety/fear of torture

, Index number: AFR 30/002/2007

Four jounalists, Allen Yéro Embalo, Alberto Dabo, Eva Maria Auzenda Biague and Fernando Jorge Perreira, have gone into hiding after threats from the military after they reported on the way Guinea-Bissau is being used as a transit point by drug-smugglers. If detained by the military, they would be at risk of torture. Human rights defender Mario Sa Gomes, who publicly called for civilian and military officials involved in the drug trade to be dismissed, has gone into hiding in fear for his life.
