ECOWAS Suspends Guinea from the Regional Body and all its Subsidiaries
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), has unequivocally reiterated its condemnation of the coup and will immediately dispatch a high-level mediation team to Conakry to examine the political, social, and humanitarian situations.
ECOWAS also called for the immediate and unconditional release of President Alpha Conde and all others detained in relation to the military takeover.
The Regional Bloc cautioned the Coup Leaders of the CNRD that they will be held individually and collectively responsible for the safety and well-being of President Conde and others who were also detained.
Guinea has now been immediately suspended from the regional body and all its subsidiaries, pending the restoration of democratic rule to that West African Nation.
