FNDC-led protest in Conakry, October 24, 2019 via Wikipedia.orgDOWNLOAD PDF OF UA 165 HERE
Five pro-democracy activists, Alseny Farinta Camara, Moussa Sanoh, Boubacar Diallo, Thierno Seydi Ly and Thierno Oumar Barry, were arrested on 14 November 2019 in Kindia, western Guinea. Officials charged them with participation in an unauthorized gathering and are holding them in Kindia Prison in connection with their participation in a protest against the revision of Guinea’s Constitution. They are all members of pro-democracy coalition National Front for the Defence of the Constitution (FNDC in French).
Two of the activists require medical attention. Alseny Farinta Camara, local coordinator of FNDC, has alleged that he was the victim of ill-treatment by police officers during his arrest and, according to relatives, his health condition is poor. Moussa Sanoh suffers from asthma and the overcrowded conditions of his detention are putting his health at risk.
