The accredited Republic of Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, the Permanent Mission before the African Union and the ECA, Simeon Oyono Esos Angue, met at the weekend with the Vice-President of the African Union Commission, the Ghanaian Kwesi Quartey.
The meeting, held at the AU headquarters, served for the delivery of a message in which the Government of Equatorial Guinea denounced the judicial masquerade in France against the Vice-President of the Republic, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue.
The message was presented to the heads of State and Governments at the 29th Ordinary Summit of AU Heads of State, held on 3rd and 4th July, which was attended by the Prime Minister, Charged with Administrative Coordination, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, and expressed the rejection and condemnation of the political process and judicial farce of which the Republic of Equatorial Guinea is a victim, with the manipulation by French justice, Transparency�France, SERPA, and pressure groups.
The manoeuvres of the French judiciary are an attempted attack on the sovereignty of the State of Equatorial Guinea, a deed considered to be an unacceptable act of political persecution as it constitutes a flagrant violation of the principles of both the United Nations Charter and the Constitution of the AU, and contradicts international rights relating to the independence of peoples, territorial integrity, sovereignty of nations, and non-interference in the internal affairs of States.
In view of the above, the Government of Equatorial Guinea is asking the AU Commission to spread this message to member countries and provide its support and solidarity for the Equatoguinean Executive.
