Babacar Diop, Malick Diallo Biaye, Mamadou Diallo, Souleymane Diockou and Pape Abdoulaye Touré were released on bail on 20 December 2019. Souleymane Ndjim was released on bail on 4 December. Three other activists, Guy Marius Sagna, Fallou Galass Seck and Ousmane Sarr, are still detained in Camp Penal prison in Dakar, Senegal.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

After a week of hunger strike to denounce their arbitrary arrest and detention, eight of the nine activists ended their hunger strike on 10 December, excluding Souleymane Ndjim who had been released on bail on 4 December.

Their lawyer appealed the decision of the judge refusing the request for Guy Marius Sagna, Falou Galass Seck and Ousmane Sarr to be released on bail.

Guy Marius Sagna is the only one of the three remaining activists detained who is being held in the high security unit of the prison. He began a hunger strike on 26 December, demanding to know the internal rules of the prison, as he wanted to know his rights as prisoner. He ended it on 29 December after the rules were given.

On 31 December, nine activist members of the movements «Gilets rouges», Frapp and «Nittu Deug», including Babacar Diop, were arrested in front of the prison of ‘Camp Penal where they organised a sit-in to call for the release of Guy Marius Sagna, Fallou Galass Seck and Ousmane Sarr. They were released on 2 January.
