Guinea twists September massacre findings
afrol News, 3 February - The Guinean military authorities are said to be shifting the blame of the September last year massacre to the aide who is also accused of trying to murder Captain Moussa ‘Dadis’ Camara.
According to reports, the government has issued its own findings on the September massacre where more than 150 people were killed in a government crackdown to silence opposition protests.
The findings by the government inquiry are said to be totally contradictory to all other enquiries by the UN and other human rights groups, which cleared pointed out that the Guinean military junta was accountable and chargeable for crimes against humanity.
Lt Aboubakar Toumba Diakite, who is still at large or disappeared, is the man who has been accused of the sole responsibility on the massacre, while he is also facing charges of an assassination attempt on the military junta leader in December, who has since been flown out of the country and is said to be recovering from his wound in Burkina Faso.
At least 157 people were killed and scores of women reportedly got raped when armed soldiers shot at and sjamboked protestors rally held at the football stadium on 28 September last year in Conakry. The Guinean authorities are still stubbornly putting the figure of people who were killed at a mere 58.
