Appeal Of Conakry for the commencement of their appeal proceedings. The hearing was adjourned to January 09, 2017 for lack of report by a magistrate. Mauritius Camara, head of the Promotion and Marketing Division of the National Tourism Board, and Mamadouba John Camara, Guinea’s consul in Lagos, had their case dismissed to the dismay of their lawyers.
They unsuccessfully requested the provisional release of their clients. For Salif Béavogui and his colleagues, their clients are paying the costs of the dysfunction of the administration. Last July, the two executives had each been sentenced to 18 months in prison.
Mamadou Foula Diallo, who had never taken part in court hearings, had been convicted in absentia. He was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment. On the civil action, the court had condemned the three defendants to pay a symbolic franc. But Mamadouba John Camara has always considered his trial as a settlement of accounts. To be continued.
