Enforced Disappearance of Islam Hassan
Since the start of this year, HAKI Africa has recorded and documented at least 20 cases of forceful disappearances. HAKI Africa and the family of Islam Hassan held a press conference to highlight the disappearance of their kin and to call on the government to assist in finding him.
Islam was picked on 21st September from his home at around 1am in Vyemani, Likoni. According to the family, the abductors identified themselves as police officers. They were armed and in plain clothes.
Islam, who has no previous criminal record, is 37 years old and married. His disappearance has left the family in a state of despair and trauma.
As HAKI Africa, we call upon the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Kenya to intervene in the ever escalating forceful disappearance cases at the Coast of Kenya.
