Mauritania: sentenced to death then pardoned

Fatimata1 was sentenced to death in 2010 in Mauritania. Pardoned in 2016, she told her story. Planète Réfugiés-droits de l’homme collected the testimonial of Fatima, a former death row inmate, in Nouakchott, Mauritania, in partnership with Ensemble contre la peine de mort and other associations.
