Urgent Action outcome: Mauritanian anti-slavery activists released

Two anti-slavery activists Biram Dah Abeid and Abdellahi el Housein Mesoud were released from Nouakchott civil Prison on 31 December 2018. The Tribunal of Arafat in Nouakchott sentenced them to six months, two months of which would be a suspended sentence. Having already spent more than four months in prison, Biram and Abdellahi were released the same day.

 

“I would like to thank all Amnesty International members for their unconditional support every time that anti-slavery activists are arbitrarily arrested.” Biram Dah Abeid 

 

NO FURTHER ACTION IS REQUESTED FROM THE NETWORK. MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT APPEALS.
