Madagascar: Environmental rights defender falsely accused: Raleva

, Index number: AFR 35/7248/2017

Malagasy environmental human rights defender Raleva has been detained based on the false charge of ‘use of false title’. This comes after he publicly challenged a Chinese gold mining company to provide proof that it had been granted mining and environmental permits to proceed with its activities. There are also health concerns for Raleva as he has yet to fully recover from a surgery he underwent several months ago.
