Madagascar: Killing of 22 detainees an appalling attack on the right to life – Amnesty International

Responding to news that Malagasy security forces killed 22 inmates escaping from Farafangana prison in the south-east of the country, Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for East and Southern Africa said: “‘This is an appalling attack on the right to life, which shows that the Malagasy government continues to neglect detainees’ lives. We have warned the authorities time and again that the squalid detention conditions in Madagascar, compounded by overcrowding and a lack of resources, would lead to tragedy. This should be a wake-up call for the government to urgently and comprehensively tackle its prison crisis.
