  • Nov.19.2019: Amnesty 'failed to support and value' Paris worker who killed himself. Independent inquiry finds serious failure of management over Gaëtan Mootoo, who felt ‘abandoned’ by the organisation. Unite, which represents hundreds of Amnesty staff in offices around the world, revealed one in three employees recently surveyed by the union felt “badly treated or bullied at work since 2017”. Karen McVeigh, The Guardian.
  • Nov.19.2018: Amnesty condemned over suicide of worker Gaëtan Mootoo. Amnesty International’s reputation as the world’s leading human rights organisation has been dealt a heavy blow as an inquiry concluded that a “serious failure of management” contributed to the suicide of veteran employee Gaëtan Mootoo, who was Amnesty’s west Africa researcher for 32 years. An independent review found that he was left feeling “abandoned and neglected” by a workplace reorganisation. The death of this gentle, dignified man, who was loved throughout the organisation, caused what one former colleague described as “an earthquake”. Sean O'Neill, The Times.
