Guinea media leader arrested

The African Editors Forum (TAEF) strongly condemns the arrest of one of the leading lights of African media, Souleymane Diallo of Guinea Conakry. Diallo, a founding member of TAEF and the Forum of West African Media Leaders, was arrested for doing his job as a journalist and editor.

TAEF deplores the onerous bail conditions imposed on him. These conditions require him, Diallo, the director of the Lynx/La Lance media group, to report to the police twice a week.

Diallo was arrested following an interview in which a woman from the United States of America alleged that a minister had embezzled funds from the Guinean military.

TAEF calls on the government of Guinea to remove all restrictions on Diallo and to respect all freedoms, especially freedom of the media and freedom of expression.
