European Parliament resolution on the situation in Guinea 
B6‑0064/07

The European Parliament,

A.  Gravely concerned by reports from international human rights groups of the violent repression by security forces of a peaceful demonstration held on 17 January 2007 in Conakry in support of a general strike launched on 10 January 2007 by Guinea’s national trade unions and civil society concerning economic and social claims,

B.  Whereas since 2005 there have been several incidents in which Guinean security forces have fired on unarmed demonstrators, notably in June 2006, when the government responded to demonstrations against rising prices of basic commodities with a brutal crackdown, during which the police and soldiers gunned down at least 13 unarmed demonstrators,

C.  Whereas Guinean security forces have in many cases abused protesters in public strikes and scores of Guineans, many of them mere bystanders to the demonstrations, have been severely beaten, robbed and, in a few cases, raped by security forces,

D.  Whereas the Guinean government has legal obligations under several international and African human rights treaties, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, which require it to respect human rights and freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly,

E.  Whereas President Conté's appointment, on 9 February, of Mr Eugene CAMARA as prime minister was not in accordance with the 27 January agreement signed between the government and the unions that called for a "consensus prime minister" with extensive executive powers for a three-year transition period during which parliamentary and presidential elections would be organised and has consequently led to continued violence and lawlessness through out Guinea;

1. Strongly condemns the disproportionate and excessive use of force by the Guinean security forces during the recent demonstrations in various parts of the country, which resulted in the death of many civilians, the wounding of several demonstrators and the detention, among others, of trade union leaders;

2.  Urges the Guinean authorities to put an immediate end to all forms of repression against civil society which exercises its freedom of expression and right to peaceful demonstration;

3.  Calls upon the Guinean authorities to order the immediate release of all persons arrested during the demonstration in the absence of valid legal charges and, if such charges exist, to ensure that they are given a prompt and fair trial in which their procedural rights are guaranteed at all times;

4.  Calls on the Guinean security forces to abide by the UN Basic Principles on the Use of Force and Firearms by Law Enforcement Officials in policing demonstrations; stresses that these principles require that law enforcement officials, in carrying out their duty, apply non-violent means as far as possible before resorting to the use of force;

5.  Fully supports the call by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights for an independent, expeditious and impartial investigation into reports that security forces killed dozens of unarmed protestors in Guinea since the start of the recent nationwide strike, in order to identify all those responsible, bring them to trial and apply the penal and/or administrative sanctions as provided by law;

6.  Urges the Guinean authorities to sustain a dialogue with civil society on guaranteeing respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms throughout the country, in accordance with national laws and international humanitarian law and human rights standards;

7.  Demande à la Commission européenne d'envisager le dialogue politique prévu par l'article 96 de l'Accord de Cotonou au cas où le pouvoir exécutif ne tiendrait pas ses promesses;

8.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the Member States, the African Union and the Guinea Government.
