The human rights situation in Gambia is deteriorating and the government is failing to abide by its international human rights obligations. Cases of enforced disappearance are yet to be resolved after several years, those involved in unlawful killings have not been identified and brought to justice, and torture is still widely used by security forces. In this campaign digest Amnesty International calls on the President of Gambia to immediately end incommunicado detention and enforced disappearances; to investigate cases of extrajudicial execution; and to comply with obligations under the African Charter.
