Journalist released on bail

(MFWA/IFEX) - On 13 April 2005, the Nouakchott Court of Appeal granted bail to freelance journalist Mohamed Lemine Ould Mahmoudy and two women who were jailed in connection with an article he published concerning an alleged case of slavery.

According to MFWA-Mauritania sources, the prisoners were only allowed to leave their cells on 14 April because of certain legal procedures that needed to be completed.
