Urgent Action update: Activist still held after release order issued

Activist Sadat Illiya Dan Malam continues to be detained after a judge of the Zinder High Court dismissed the charges of "participation in an insurrectional movement" and "conspiracy against the security of the state" against him and ordered his immediate release on 20 May. The Zinder High Court prosecutor has appealed the judge’s decision.

Take action.
