Outspoken online activist Soro Tangboho alias Carton Noir was arbitrarily arrested while he was streaming live on Facebook police officers who were, according to him, extorting money from motorists. He was beaten during the arrest.

Since his detention, Soro Tangboho has been in poor health.

This case is part of the wave of repression targeting activists for several months now in Côte d’Ivoire.
