Liberia: The Cycle of Abuse

Human Rights Violations Since the November Cease-fire

Legacy Link
On November 28, 1990, Liberia's warring factions signed a cease-fire agreement, theoretically ending 11 months of fighting that had ravaged the country. Although the widespread killing and brutality associated with the civil war have largely subsided, an Africa Watch investigative mission found that human rights violations against the civilian population persist, ranging from extrajudicial executions and torture to tight restrictions on freedom of movement and intolerance of dissent.
