The Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) of president Teodoro Obiang has implicitly recognized for the first time, the Spanish origin of the guinean Feliciano Ephah and July, Obama and the equatoguinean Welcome Ndong and Martin Obiang, resident in Spain, are prisoners in their country. Through a statement, which leaves the step of an article of THE COUNTRY, the ruling party in Malabo suggests that the four opponents were delivered by the authorities of South Sudan, where they were captured last November 15, after falling into a trap, and complains that Spain has not responded to the demands of Equatorial Guinea to be detained and extradited.
the release of The PDGE remember that the Criminal chamber of the Provincial court of Waterfront-Bata sentenced to a number of people, in different degrees, as perpetrators or accomplices of the crimes of treason, financing of terrorism or incitement to sedition military for their alleged involvement in the alleged coup attempt of December 2017. And he adds that some of the damned “are in absentia and reside in Spain”.
Following the issuing of warrants of search and arrest, continues the note, the Government of Malabo“, requested through diplomatic channels the cooperation of friendly countries and international organizations; among them, Spain and Interpol". But, “while some countries are reacting positively to these petitions,” he added, in apparent allusion to South Sudan, “others maintain a complicit silence”.
The statement condemns what it calls “double-standard” of countries, organizations and the media to serious crimes such as terrorism, “depending on where it occurs or against whom it directs its actions.” It does not explain, however, why Equatorial Guinea has not informed in any moment of the arrest of the four opponents, even to their families, if they were delivered by the authorities of South Sudan for already a month and a half on the basis of a legal procedure of extradition.
Neither man referred to in the note to the refusal of the authorities ecuatoguineanas to allow the Spanish Embassy in Malabo providing consular assistance to the two Spanish citizens and even provide information about his state of health or whereabouts.Updated Date: 03 January 2020, 01:00
