This brief report updates a report published by Amnesty International in July 1995 entitled Equatorial Guinea: A Dismal Record of Broken Promises, which describes the use by the Equatorial Guinean government of harassment, imprisonment, and ill-treatment as a means of curbing the activities of human rights and political activists. Shortly after the July report was written the Equatorial Guinean government declared an amnesty for a number of political prisoners. Amnesty International welcomes the releases but is concerned by news of further human rights violations leading up to and following Equatorial Guinea's first democratic municipal elections held on September 17, 1995.
