Post-March Update: Guinea Security Forces Fire Live Rounds, 1 Dead and Four Wounded, Plus Video Featuring “Wall of China-Sized” Tear Gas Used to Split March in Two

April 25, 2013

In a previous post, Guinea Oye wrote that it is customary for security services, during or after marches, to `pursue opposition of marchers into their neighborhoods by security forces to mete out punishment. It happened today again and resulted in the death of a 16 year-old boy. Below is a short article by guineenews.org, about the boy’s death and the injury of other opposition supporters by live ammunition from security forces. Note that the mother of the dead boy says her family cannot mourn in peace because the security forces have besieged their neighborhood.

It is 17h 40 Guineenews’ reporter and leader of the opposition, Cellou Dalein Diallo, had access to the morgue where rests the moment Boubacar Diallo. Aged only 16, a mechanic by trade, Boubacar Diallo is from Djouriyah prefecture Dalaba.


Inconsolable now, his parents explain to the leader of the UFDG Diallo that it is punishment that they have to have a death without being able to mourn in peace, their neighborhood is besieged by forces .. .


At Donka morgue where we were not allowed to take a picture of the deceased Boubacar Diallo, through a doctor we still found a list of some victims.

Souleymane Bah, 16, was shot in the thigh;
Alhassane Diallo, 22, was shot in the hip;

    Phony condolences coming from Alpha Conde, the Guinean president after his militia shot a peaceful demonstrator, once again!
    People may wonder why or how come he seems all of a sudden to care?
    The answer is simple for anyone who follows closely the guinean politics: a French NGO called Anticor with some Guineans individuals decided to prosecute Mr Alpha Condé as a French citizen in Paris for crimes against humanity committed in Guinea –the French laws allow to do so for its citizens- and ask the Attorney in Paris to press charges before the ICC.
    Alpha Conde who is cruel but not stupid realized that he must redeem himself by pretending now that he has nothing to do with his militia’s murders. He may fool the Westerners, some of them, but not us!
    However, we are not stupid either. We will prosecute Alpha Condé no matter what, soon or later!
