Dignity and Human Rights Stripped at the Airport PDF Print E-mail


On the 1st of February 2011, upon arrival at the Dakar International Airport, three Nigerian participants of Dignity International's West African Regional Linking and Learning on Human Rights in Development program were detained for more than an hour, and one of them was even stripped-searched. None of them were given any explanation or information in regards to the procedures practiced by the authorities at the airport. And with that gross violation of dignity and human rights of our three friends, the Dignity International families, together with our partner network West African Civil Society Forum (WACSOF), express our outrage at this incident and demand for an apology from the authorities.
