The NTF-ELCAC as culprit in red-tagging

“A wide range of human rights defenders, humanitarian workers, journalists, community media workers, students, artists, writers, trade unionists, teachers, youth, priests, health workers, and indigenous leaders claim to have been or are being targeted – in effect, these are people who are strongly and openly critical of government policies, who are activists, or who hold progressive views…Many have pointed their fingers at the state agency, the NTF-ELCAC either as the culprit or the instigator, but also to the military, state security officials, senior government officials, and some media outlets.”—UN Special Rapporteur Irene Khan (February 2, 2024)
