The concerns covered here include: imprisonment of prisoners of conscience, ill-treatment and torture of detainees, violations linked to armed conflicts, refugee and asylum issues, political killings and "disappearances", the death penalty, deaths in custody or as a result of shootings by security forces, conscientious objection, fair trial concerns and discrimination or attacks against religious or ethnic groups.
