Liberia: Violence, discrimination and impunity

, Index number: AFR 34/003/2005

Former rebel fighters who should have been disarmed and demobilized following the formal ending of internal conflict in 2003 have reacted with violence when they have not received their benefits. In this document Amnesty International urges candidates in forthcoming elections to make public commitments, for example, to advocacy of human rights; to protection of civilians from continuing violence; to the ending of impunity.
