Burkina Faso

We are closely following the human rights situation in Burkina Faso after last week’s coup. We welcome the declarations of the military authorities that they will comply with the “international commitments of the country, including those related to the promotion and protection of human rights.”

North-Central and Sahel

We remain concerned about the dire security and humanitarian situation faced by the civilian population in the North-Central and Sahel regions, who face daily threats of violence from non-state armed groups.

Credible reports suggest that at least eight children recently died of malnutrition in the city of Djibo, which has been besieged by non-state armed groups since May 2022.

The last convoy attempting to bring humanitarian assistance to the city on September 26 was attacked by armed groups, leaving 37 dead, including 10 civilians.

We are also deeply concerned about the decision to suspend all political and civil society activities. We urge the military authorities to immediately rescind this arbitrary decision and effectively protect all human rights.

We note that the authorities have committed to dealing decisively with “terrorism”, however, we caution that all military operations, including those against non-state armed groups, must comply fully with international human rights law, as well as with applicable international humanitarian law and guarantee effective protection of the civilian population.

Burkina Faso

We call on Burkina Faso to launch prompt, thorough, and impartial investigations into all deaths and injuries related to the coup, including at least four people killed and eight others injured in looting and coup demonstrations since 30 September, and ensure that those found responsible are held accountable.

We also call on the current authorities to unequivocally condemn all cases of hate speech and incitement to violence, wherever they occur and ensure that those responsible are held accountable in accordance with the law.
