We are calling on the Sierra Leone Police ( SLP), to ensure that their decision to ban group jogging for security reasons is fully in line with national and international law and respect for the freedom of assembly and association as guaranteed by the constitution of Sierra Leone and other international human rights instruments .

The SLP should not forget that the right to freedom of peaceful assembly, i.e. to both organize and participate in indoor and outdoor peaceful assemblies is a fundamental right and the freedom of peaceful assembly and association is a cornerstone of democracy; a fundamental freedom.

We wish to remind the SLP that there are laws that guarantee every Sierra Leonean the right to assembly; therefore they should not be seen acting in a manner that may not be reasonable and justifiable in a democratic Society.

We want to kindly appeal to the SLP to find a way to uphold the balance of rights and freedoms with safety and security at the core.

Sierra Leone is built and should be allowed to grow on the principles of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.

Note: Campaign for Human Rights and Development International (CHRDI ) is a Rights based social-policy advocacy Organisation. We Draw attention to the responsibility of duty-bearers to uphold human rights, and seek to support rights-holders to claim their rights. CHRDI is in Special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council and accredited to many UN Agencies.
