This is an urgent request by 28 civil society organizations to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders and to the African Commission Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders and Focal Point on Reprisals in Africa requesting their intervention in the arrest and detention of human rights defender, Tito Elia Magoti. The organizations are not only concerned that his arrest and detention is in retaliation for his legitimate human rights work but that the manner of his arrest, indicates a pattern by the State of disregarding due process procedures.
