Prisoner of conscience on hunger strike


On 28 January 2021, Oumar Sylla (also known as Foniké Mengué) was sentenced to 11 months in prison for «participating in a prohibited assembly likely to disturb public order» after four months of arbitrary detention. His lawyers are appealing the decision.

As you know, Oumar was arrested in Conakry, the Guinean capital, on 29 September 2020, while mobilizing against President Alpha Condé's candidacy for the presidential election. He was initially prosecuted for «illegal assembly, disturbing public order, destruction of public properties and endangering state security». According to a list drawn up by lawyers representing detained opposition supporters, 167 activists or opposition supporters are currently detained at the central prison in Conakry – and between 350 and 400 others are detained elsewhere in the country.

Oumar Sylla is a prisoner of conscience who must be immediately and unconditionally released, so please continue to take action.
