Free the Anti-slavery Activists

On January 07, 2011, the Initiative for the Resurgence of the Abolitionist Movement in Mauritania ( IRA ) has released a statement announcing the sentencing of Biram Ould Abeid, leader of the organization and two others to six months in prison. Three others received suspended sentences of six months. Based on fabricated charges, the sentences are solely meant to prevent human rights activists from defending victims of slavery.

Arbitrarily arrested and mistreated on December 13, 2010 while trying to free two young girls 10 and 14 held as slaves, the anti-slaves activists have sentenced by the Mauritanian court on false charges that they had assaulted the police.
