Angola: Situation in Guinea Bissau Slammed At CPLP Forum

Luanda — The Ninth Conference of the Forum of Chief Justices of the Portuguese Speaking Countries Community (CPLP), held from October 22 to 24, in the city of Dili, East Timor, condemned the situation prevailing in Guinea Bissau.

ANGOP learnt of the information from the Angolan chief justice, Cristiano André, moments after arriving in the country, following his participation at the aforementioned conference that led to the final declaration, in which the forum adopted a position regarding the situation prevailing in the Republic of Guinea Bissau.

"The situation prevailing in that country disobeys justice, as it is a violation of human rights and obviously the people of Guinea Bissau are living a situation that should need the suport of the regional and international community, in order to reverse this situation", he asserted.

The conference, which gathered nine countries and territories having Portuguese as their official language, was held under the aegis of the government of East Timor and aimed at analysing matters that concern the community in the sector of courts and the magistracy, in particular.

The 10th Conference of the Forum of Chief Justices of CPLP will be held in November 2014, in Sao Tome and Principe.
