Switzerland: Mohamed Wa Baile Wins Ethnic Profiling Case as the European Court of Human Rights Unanimously Condemns Racial Discrimination

Years of campaigning for justice and the tireless engagement of activist Mohamed Wa Baile and supporters have paid off, resulting in an important judgment against ethnic profiling. The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has condemned Switzerland for racial discrimination across the board. Amnesty International submitted a Third-Party Intervention to the Court on the key issues of discriminatory identity checks and Switzerland’s serious failings in the prevention of ethnic profiling.
