DRC: Fear of ill-treatment / prisoners of conscience

, Index number: AFR 62/004/1999

Five leading members of prominent opposition parties, Adrien Phongo Kunda, Joseph Mukendi wa Mulumba, Cleophas Kamitatu Masamba, Bofassa Djema and Kisimba Ngoy were arrested on 16 January 1999. None of the five have been charged or been allowed access to legal counsel, and Amnesty International fears that they risk ill-treatment.
