The Amnesty International report published on April 15, 2016, states “dozens of men are being held in squalid conditions without charge or trial sometimes for months on end”.

Information Minister Michael Makuei says however that “anybody who is under arrest is charged and is awaiting trial”.

Meanwhile, the 18 SPLM-In Opposition members who were arrested during the arrival of General Lado Gore on Tuesday, April 12, were released on April 16.
