El deterioro de la democracia y el Estado de derecho en Nicaragua es cada vez más preocupante y tiene importantes consecuencias para defensores y defensoras de derechos humanos y la sociedad Nicaragüense en general. A medida que la familia Presidencial ha consolidado su control sobre la Asamblea Nacional, el Ejército, la Policía y los medios de comunicación, hemos presenciado una disminución constante del espacio para la sociedad civil.

My friend Dr Mudawi Ibrahim Adam is in detention again in Khartoum. He was taken by the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) from the University of Khartoum on 7th December and is being held without access to his lawyer or his family. He has previously been detained on several occasions, for over a month in 2010 and earlier for a total of 18 months in several spells during 2003-2005.

On July 12-13, 2016, the annual EU-China Summit will take place in Beijing. After two weeks of Brexit-induced European turmoil, China is likely to see this as an opportunity to take advantage of the EU’s member states for better trade deals.

andrew Anderson and Andrea Rocca meeting Issa Amro in Hebron
9 Junio 2016

I returned last week from a visit to Palestine and Israel. Over six days my colleague and I met with brilliant, tenacious, creative and brave human rights defenders who work non-violently on behalf of others in the brutally occupied West Bank or in an increasingly hostile Israel. We were not allowed access to meet with beleaguered human rights defenders in Gaza.

Andrew Anderson Visiting Azimjan Askarov in Prison in Kyrgyzstan
17 Mayo 2016

When I visited Azimjan Askarov in prison in Bishkek in December 2010 there were some grounds for hope that he would be released. He had been sentenced in September 2010 to life in prison, but the process had been seriously flawed and the Kyrgyz human rights Ombudsman had found that the charges against him were politically motivated. When we met with Azimjan our main concern was that his health was improving following the torture he had been subjected to.
