Human Rights Commissioner on alleged stoning in Mali

30.07.2012 - Press release

We emphatically condemn the violence being wrought against people in northern Mali in order to establish a radical interpretation of Sharia law there. These grave human rights violations must stop. Should the appalling report on the stoning prove true, it would mean that what has occurred is a criminal offence in Mali as well as an utterly unjustifiable act.
