"It appears that arrests were largely random, with security forces pursuing and subduing any person within reach. In addition, men without insignia and wearing balaclavas took part in the forced dispersal of protests, 'creating a climate of fear and lawlessness,'' the report says. Broad use of unnecessary and disproportionate force repeatedly violated people’s rights, including to freedom of expression, assembly and association.

In total, between May 2020 and May 2021, at least 37,000 people were detained, many of them placed in administrative detention for up to 15 days. Of this total, some 13,500 people were arbitrarily arrested and detained between 9 and 14 August alone. The information collected by the examination indicates that torture and ill-treatment were widespread and systematic."

Moreover, the nature of use differs. For example, while up to 8 in 10 Internet users shop online in several developed countries, that figure is less than 1 in 10 in many LDCs. Further, within countries, there are significant divides between rural and urban areas, as well as between men and women. The largest gender divides are observed among LDCs and in the African region."
