Dakar - Human rights groups say the situation in Gambia is worsening as political opponents are detained by authorities and some receive death threats.
The tiny West African country awaits a key court ruling January 10 in the disputed presidential election.
President Yahya Jammeh initially conceded defeat in the December 1 vote, only to change his mind a week later.
Meanwhile, supporters of President-elect Adama Barrow say he is going ahead with plans for a January 19 inauguration.
Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International said on Thursday that two founding members of the #Gambiahasdecided movement have fled the country.
The country's election chief also has left Gambia after a threat made against his life.
At least six others have been briefly detained for wearing #Gambiahasdecided T-shirts.
