Political activists, Brigitte Kafui Adjamagbo and Gérard Yaovi Djossou – both members of the Dynamique Monseigneur Kpodrzo (DMK), a group of opposition parties and civil society organizations in Togo- were arrested respectively on 28 and 27 November after the DMK called for a demonstration to denounce the results of the February 2020 Presidential election and the judicial harassment of government opponents. They were charged with ‘criminal conspiracy’ and ‘undermining the internal security of the state’ and have since been detained. They must be immediately and unconditionally released.
