Niger anti-slave activist jailed

I don't pretend to know the background, but the BBC reports Niger anti-slave activist jailed perhaps on a "trumped-up" charge? But what stunned me was this line:
"At least 43,000 people are thought to live in subjugation across Niger, which officially banned slavery in May 2003."
2003?!?
