EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Togo is a republic governed by President Faure Gnassingbe, whom voters re-elected in 2015 in a process international observers characterized as generally free and fair. In 2013 the ruling Union for the Republic party (UNIR) won 62 of 91 seats in the National Assembly. International and national observers declared it generally free, fair, transparent, and peaceful, although there were logistical shortcomings.

Civilian authorities at times did not maintain effective control over the security forces.

The most significant human rights issues included arbitrary deprivation of life and use of excessive force by security forces; lack of due process; harsh and life-threatening conditions in prisons and detention centers; arbitrary arrest; executive influence on the judiciary; government restrictions on freedom of assembly; official corruption; criminalization of same-sex sexual conduct, although not enforced; and trafficking in persons.

The government took limited steps to prosecute or punish officials who committed abuses. Impunity was a problem.
