Brahim Ebety: arbitrary omprisonment of anti-slavery activists
- 20 October 2015
Brahim Ebety is a well-known Mauritanian Lawyer and an old friend of AEDH. He is one of the group of lawyers who are defending Biram Dah Abeid, Brahim Ould Bilal and Djiby Sow, all activists fighting the practice of slavery in Mauritania, and recently sentenced to two years in prison. Biram and Brahim are the President and Vice President respectively of the Mauritanian movement IRA (Initiative for the Reinforcement of the Abolition). AEDH worked alongside a number of Mauritanian and international organisations to protest their wrongful imprisonment and has supported those in prison through its emergency fund for human rights defenders. Brahim Ebety reveals the truth about this affair.
