Overview

Security forces continued to carry out serious human rights violations, including dozens of unlawful killings, using excessive and unnecessary force. The police violated the rights to freedom of expression while peaceful protesters faced arbitrary arrest and detention. Pastoral communities had their land expropriated for use by commercial farmers.
