BURKINA FASO – France 24 emissions suspended

Publie

le

Burkinabe authorities ordered the cessation of France 24’s broadcasts following an interview with the head of the North African branch of the Al-Qaeda group, Aqim. The French channel deplores the decision.

In a statement available on its website, the French media “challenges the unfounded accusations” put forward by the Burkinabe authorities to justify their decision, this Thursday, June 30, 2023.

At the reproach of the Burkinabe government for having granted an interview to the head of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (Aqmi), France 24 replies that it did not grant him an interview directly, “taking care to recount his remarks in the form of a chronicle allowing the necessary distancing and contextualization.”

MEDIA – Press release of the Senegalese Press Club in France on the case of investigative journalist Pape Alé Niang

Publie

le

Once again, our colleague Pape Alé Niang has been arrested and placed in pre-trial detention for a few days. Accused of leaking information prejudicial to national defence and spreading fake news, he had already been imprisoned a few months ago. This time, he is imprisoned under the charge of having launched a “call for insurrection”, shortly after the arrest of the opponent Ousmane Sonko, leader of the Pastef.

The Senegalese Press Club in France first expresses its support and compassion to Pope Alé Niang, detained since July 29, 2023, he began a hunger strike to denounce the injustice he is a victim.

We draw the attention of national and international opinion to the very precarious state of health of Pope Alé Niang. We strongly denounce his arrest as a flagrant violation of press freedom and freedom of expression.

We therefore call for the immediate and unconditional release of Pope Alé Niang, whose health cannot be compatible with detention and is deteriorating day by day.

We remind the Senegalese authorities of the importance of guaranteeing citizens’ right to information and respecting democratic principles.
The Senegalese press club in France does not rule out bringing to justice the Senegalese authorities who have endangered the life of a journalist.
The life of Pape Alé NIANG is in the hands of the regime of Macky SALL!

PAPE ALE NIANG: The information closed, the prosecutor will inherit the file

new in the case of journalist columnist. Whose judicial information has just been completed according to his lawyer Me Ciré Clédor. According to the dress, black, the case must be referred to the prosecutor within three days. So the prosecution will have 15 days to make its closing statement. A long procedure that may not be in favor of Pope Alé who has a fragile health.

The investigating judge has just given notice to the lawyers of the journalist Pope ale Niang that the information is completed and the file made available to them for 3 days before being transmitted to the prosecutor of the republic for his final requisitions.

The prosecution will have 15 days to do so, after which the judge will probably make an order for referral to the correctional police even if the defence is of the opinion that the offences held by the prosecution at this stage are not proven.

The instructing magistrate will once again regain his independence to keep the journalist in detention until his appearance before the court of trial, or order his interim release to preserve the presumption of innocence he enjoys and not abuse his powers.

Given the journalist’s state of health, which justifies his hospitalization to preserve his life, the defense hopes that the epilogue of this procedure will not experience more delays with delays that no complexity of the case could justify.
