JOAQUÍN ELO AYETO IS FREE!
Joaquín Elo Ayeto is a member of an opposition political party, and a youth activist in Equatorial Guinea.
He has been repeatedly harassed, beaten and arrested over a number of years due to his relentless social justice campaigning.
On 25 February 2019 Joaquín was arrested in his home, accused of making threats against the president. Joaquín was held in pre-trial detention for 9 months where he was tortured, threatened and held incommunicado, until his case was finally heard in November 2019. Once his case did go to trial, Joaquín was never sentenced, and no verdict was ever announced. Yet the authorities kept him behind bars.
But Amnesty International supporters like you campaigned tirelessly for Joaquín’s freedom. And in February 2020 he walked free.
After his release, Joaquín thanked Amnesty International supporters for their campaigning efforts:
“I have been told of the work that you have done for me and I want to thank Amnesty International for the titanic effort that has resulted in my release. I want to thank you for all the work that has been done to achieve my release.”
Last year, proceeds from the Amnesty Raffle totalled £234,474! We spent 73.41% of that on human rights work and raising further funds, 8.83% on prizes and 17.76% on running the lottery.
With 10 prizes up for grabs, we estimate that every entry will have a 1 in 4,069 chance of winning cash in this year’s Summer Raffle.
