Mauritania: Further information on Prison Conditions / Prisoner of Conscience

, Index number: AFR 38/004/2001

Mohamed Lemine Chbih Ould Cheikh Melaïnine, Mokhtar Ould Haïbetna, and Bouba Ould Hassena, were sentenced to five years in prison on 14 June, after their conviction of conspiracy to commit acts of sabotage and terrorism. Amnesty International believes that the charges are without foundation and considers all three men to be prisoners of conscience, jailed solely for their non-violent political activities.
