"the absence of due process" means that there was no a proper (court) process which is a base to imprison someone etc. "harassment of ethnic and religious minorities" means that ethnic and religious minorities (so the groups of people who live in a place where most of the people are of different ethnicity or profess another religion) are opressed which means treated cruelly, unfairly, without respect etc.
