 The communication No. 17/88, was submitted by Mr. Hilaire Badjogoume. He complained of being arbitrarily detained for two years, from 5 April 1988 to 10 January 1990.
 Notices of hearing were sent to the parties, but only the representative of the Government of Benin appeared. The Government representative was duly given the opportunity to present his case at the end of which the Commission after due consideration decided that the Government of Benin has settled the complainant's claim administratively.
 This decision was communicated to the complainants and in absence of response the Commission confirms its decision.
