Guinea Failing to Prosecute Perpetrators of Massacre, HRW Says

Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Guinea hasn’t prosecuted anyone responsible for the killing of more than 150 opposition supporters, one year after security forces opened fire on demonstrators at a stadium in the capital Conakry, Human Rights Watch said.

“Justice for the victims simply should not be allowed to slide,” said Corinne Dufka, a researcher with the New York-based group, in a statement on its website.

Soldiers and police loyal to the former military regime known as the Conseil National pour la Democratie et le Development planned the attack in advance, HRW said.

Former CNDD leader Moussa Dadis Camara was wounded in an assassination attempt in December and has been incapacitated since. Under new leadership the country held its first round of national elections in June. A second round will take place on Oct. 10.
