Conte’s son in drug trafficking charge

afrol News, 13 November - Guinea court has charged Moussa Conte, a second son of the late President Lansana Conte with drug trafficking.

Mr Conte and his three alleged associates have denied importing machines for the manufacture of narcotics, saying they were for processing bio-fuels.

In February this year, Guinea’s military junta arrested the son of the late President Lansana Conte, Ousmane Conte for alleged drug trafficking.

The head of the military junta in Guinea, Captain Moussa Dadis Camara has promised to root out drug trafficking in the West Africa State.

Drugs have become a general security issue in West Africa with narco-dollars altering already weak economies of the region and also threatening democratic institutions according to the United Nation.

United Nations estimates that at least 50 tonnes of cocaine are shipped through West African region every year.

The Guinean junta is under pressure after some 157 protesters were killed recently. The junta opened fire at opposition protesters on 28 September at a national stadium in the capital Conakry.

Guinea, like rest of the West African states, is known to be a transit point for smuggling drugs from Latin America to markets in Europe.
