Presentation of the report of the 2nd Universal Periodic Review of Madagascar


Item 6 : Universal Periodic Review

[Exerpt from the statement]

The illegal acts referred to by the Malagasy delegation are extrajudicial executions and acts of torture, and they are far from isolated cases since more than a thousand people have been murdered in this region since 2012, not to mention the looting and the flight of thousands of people as a result of the terror exercised by the forces of law and order.

In this context, we call on the Malagasy government to invite the Special Rapporteur on extra-judicial executions to investigate the abuses committed by the forces of law and order and armed gangs, as well as the illegal arms trade. The Malagasy government should take all necessary measures to immediately lift all restrictions on freedom of expression, association and peaceful demonstration. These are essential measures for building democracy, national reconciliation and respect for the human rights of everyone.
