Since the democratically elected President Ravalomanana was ousted by a military coup led by Andry Rajoelina, Human rights have suffered more and more violations in Madagascar. With the signing of a roadmap brokered by the SADC peace and security council, more than four months ago, one have raised hope a solution was found, based on consensus in a transition supposed to lead to fairs elections.
Unfortunately, opposition leaders show much disappointment since the implementation by M.Andry Rajoelina of the roadmap urging the administration to take apeasement measures, to set a neutral governement and a neutral parliament were opposition should be represented in balanced way, such implementation has been completly overthrown by the Transitional president. They claim M. Rajoelina make a selective implementation of the roadmap, choosing ministers, congressmen on his own, without consulting the opposition mouvances.
The recent event of 21st February, when former elected President Ravalomanana attempted to return to Madagascar, as set by the agreement of the roadmap, have heaten up the situation. The administration refused to let the plane land and hundreds of thousands people, gathered at the airport to welcome Ravalomanana were chased by the security forces, faithful to M. Rajoelina. Several people were injured and a man, father of two young children, died after a receiving a shot in his head while he and his friends were running away, many kilometers away from the airport.
The roadmap, which states that releasing of political prisonners should be decided for social apeasement is therefore far from a fair implementation. Caporal Aaron, one of the military officers accused of attempting a coup d'Etat in 2010 has been transfered outside Antananarivo, though he got ill and actually wheighs 80lbs. This officer is just one of the many jailed for political reasons and suffering unbearable conditions leading to severe illness (Col. Charles was held in prison since 2010 while his family constantly called for hospital cares, systematically refused. now he was sent to Reunion where rumours say he was in coma and others say, he found death).
In regard of the massive violations of Human rights occuring since 2009, just after the military coup, adoption of an amnesty law for every political facts, including the criminal acts committed by the Rajoelina's administration should be made before this crisis turns to something worse.
