Amnesty International submits this briefing to the United Nations Human Rights Committee ahead of its examination of Mozambique’s initial report on the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This submission highlights concerns about persisting impunity for unlawful killings by the police; torture and ill-treatment of detained persons; arbitrary arrest; conditions of detention; lack of access to justice; suppression of freedom of opinion, expression, association and assembly, as well as the failure to protect children, particularly those in conflict with the law.
