Cote D'Ivoire: Fear of torture or ill-treatment/incommunicado detention

, Index number: AFR 31/002/2005

The former armed opposition group Forces Nouvelles (FN), New Forces, who control the northern part of Côte d'Ivoire, arrested New Zealand national Brian Hamish Sans on 11 March in their stronghold, the city of Bouaké, in the centre of the country. In a separate incident, the FN have also arrested 35 men whom they accuse of being pro-government fighters. All appear to be held incommunicado, and are at risk of torture.
