Equatorial Guinea: Arrests of Pro-Democracy Activists - A Changing Pattern of Human Rights Violations
The last year has seen the emergence of a new pattern of political arrests in response to increasing pressure for political reform within Equatorial Guinea.

One of the prisoners, Antonio Ebang Mbele Abang, a former member of parliament arrested in November 1990, has been adopted as a prisoner of conscience. Amnesty International is investigating other cases of people placed under house arrest or detained for brief periods. They include: Pedro Motu Mamiaga, Gabino Mualika Epitie, Angel Masie Ntutumu, Ricardo Nvumba Bindang, Alfonso Nsue Mokuy and Pedro Ekong Andeme. Reports of torture are also being investigated.
