Mauritania: Authorities must stop using arbitrary arrests to crackdown on anti-slavery and anti-discrimination activists
On 3 July 2019, Ahmedou Ould Wediaa, a prominent anti-slavery activist, journalist and member of the opposition party (Tawassoul) in Mauritania, was arbitrarily arrested during a police raid at his home following statements he made criticising the authorities’ response to the election related protests, and in particular the mass arrests of foreign nationals. Amnesty International, Minority Rights Group and SOS Esclaves and six other Mauritanian human rights groups are calling for his immediate and unconditional release.
