The UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Mali, Alioune Tine, will conduct an official visit to the country from 6 to 17 February 2023.
“This visit will allow me to continue the overall assessment of the human rights situation in the country and support the Malian transitional authorities in their efforts to promote and protect human rights,” Tine said.
“During this visit, I will meet public authorities to discuss progress made in the implementation of commitments made on my previous recommendations, particularly on issues of protection of civic space, respect for the rule of law and the fight against impunity,” Tine said.
During his visit to Bamako and the rest of the country, Tine will meet with Malian authorities, civil society and victims’ associations, non-governmental organisations, diplomats and UN agencies.
Tine will present his annual report to the Human Rights Council in March 2023.
