Democratic Republic of the Congo: "Time to recharge": Corporate action and inaction to tackle abuses in the cobalt supply chain 15.11.2017 Chinese / English / French -> Amnesty Report .. This report builds on This is What We Die For, which showed how cobalt mined by children and adults in hazardous conditions in the DRC entered the supply chains of many of the world’s biggest brands. This report assesses the policies and practices of 29 companies and how much their cobalt-sourcing practices have improved since then. While there have been signs of progress by some companies, too many continue to lag behind. Company responses sought in the production of this report can be found in document AFR 62/7418/2017 available on this website.'''

Democratic Republic of Congo: "This is what we die for": Human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo power the global trade in cobalt 19.01.2016 Chinese / English / French -> Amnesty Report .. documents the hazardous conditions in which artisanal miners, including thousands of children, mine cobalt in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It goes on to trace how this cobalt is used to power mobile phones, laptop computers, and other portable electronic devices.
Research by Amnesty International and Afrewatch found that one of the largest of these companies in Kolwezi is Congo Dongfang Mining International SARL (CDM). This company is a 100 per cent owned subsidiary of China-based Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Company Ltd (Huayou Cobalt), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of cobalt products. CDM is a smelter and therefore processes the ore before exporting it to Huayou Cobalt in China which then processes it further.

Amnesty-Bericht: "China's Deadly Secrets" 11. April 2017 - Die chinesische Regierung verschweigt das Ausmaß der Anwendung der Todesstrafe im Land. Das ausgeklügelte Geheimhaltungssystem, das den völkerrechtlichen Verpflichtungen Chinas zuwiderläuft, verschleiert die Zahl der jedes Jahr zum Tode verurteilten und hingerichteten Menschen, die nach Schätzungen von Amnesty International jeweils in die Tausende gehen. -> Zusammenfassung des Berichts "China's Deadly Secrets" auf Deutsch als PDF-Datei
Vollständiges Bericht -English und Chinese -> Amnesty Research: China's Deadly Secrets
The Chinese government continues to conceal the extent to which capital punishment is being used in China, despite more than four decades of requests from UN bodies and the international community and despite the Chinese authorities’ own pledges to bring about increased openness in the country’s criminal justice system. This report focuses on the extent to which the authorities maintain near absolute secrecy over the death penalty system, while using partial and generally unverifiable disclosures to claim progress and reject demands for greater transparency.
