Alors que le Togo s’achemine vers des élections présidentielles le 25 avril prochain, les autorités doivent garantir le respect de la liberté de réunion et la liberté d’expression, et ne tolérer sous aucun prétexte l’utilisation excessive de la force comme celle observée le mois dernier, a déclaré Amnesty International aujourd’hui.
When her husband died, Alice Beti and her two children almost became homeless.
