HRWF’s human rights report mentioned in LE MONDE and EU TODAY

HRWF (29.07.2022) – On the eve of President Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Benin, Human Rights Without Frontiers (HRWF) filed a report with the United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR) for Benin, in which the organisation outlined its concerns over human rights abuses in Benin, with particular regard to the continued detention of opposition figures Reckya Madougou and Joël Aivo and the fact that they were not included in a list of 17 detainees due to be temporarily released after a 13 June 2022 meeting between President Patrice Talon and Thomas Boni Yayi, former President of Benin (2006-2016). 

A press release with a copy of the report was sent to more than 500 French journalists and media, as well as to the members of the French Parliament and Senate. Eighty MPs signed an open letter denouncing the continued destruction of democracy by President Talon since 2016.
