Lebanon: Antoinette Chahin: torture and unfair trial

, Index number: MDE 18/016/1997

On 7 January 1997 Antoinette Yusuf Chahin, a student, was sentenced to death, commuted to life imprisonment with hard labour, for her alleged involvement in the assassination of Father Sam'an Boutros al-Khoury on 11 May 1992. Amnesty International is concerned that the trial of Antoinette Chahin and her co-defendants was seriously flawed and is calling for them to be retried in accordance with international fair trial standards. Amnesty International is also calling for an impartial investigation into their allegations of torture and ill-treatment.
