About the publication

The sixth volume of the African Human Rights Law Reports covers the period up to the end of 2005. The Reports cover cases decided by the United Nations Human Rights Committee, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and domestic judgments from different African countries. The Reports are a joint publication of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, South Africa.

From this volume Pretoria University Law Press (PULP) has taken over as publisher from JUTA. PULP also publishes the French version of these Reports, Recueil Africain des Décisions des Droits Humains.

The Reports, as well as other material of relevance to human rights law in Africa, may be found on the website of the Centre for Human Rights at Hard copies of the Reports can be obtained from the Centre for Human Rights.

Editorial changes have been kept to a minimum, and are confined to changes that are required to ensure consistency in style (with regard to abbreviations, capitalisation, punctuation and quotes) and to avoid obvious errors. Quotes and references have, where possible, been checked against the original. Corrections which may affect the meaning are indicated by square brackets. We wish to thank the persons who helped us obtain cases published in the Reports: Mianko Ramaroson, Virginia Njeri Kamau, Polycarp Ngufor Forkum, Neldjingaye Kameldy, Victor Lando, Rosemary Sengendo, Douglas Singiza and Innocent Maja.

Cases from national courts that would be of interest to include in future issues of the Reports may be brought to the attention of the editors at:
