  • Equatorial Guinea: Concerns Regarding the Political Environment in Equatorial Guinea Both Before and After the April 24th Presidential Election.

    The United States is concerned about the political environment in Equatorial Guinea, both before and after its April 24 presidential election.There have been numerous credible reports of government security services using excessive force, obstructing and dispersing opposition rallies and intimidating civil society activists. We are especially concerned that the security services violently attacked the headquarters of the opposition party Ciudadanos por la Innovación (CI) on April 22, two days before the Presidential election, causing serious injuries among those inside. Members of CI have since had their freedom of movement restricted in Malabo and Bata, and more than 60 people remain detained without charges. We call on the government to permit citizens to exercise their democratic rights, and for all in Equatorial Guinea to address political differences through peaceful and consensual dialogue.   »
