Equatorial Guinea Slams French Prosecution, ICP Asks Why Not Cameroon's Biya, Francophony

By Matthew Russell Lee, Photos

UNITED NATIONS, August 14 – Equatorial Guinea won a seat on the UN Security Council, getting 185 votes from the UN's 193 member states. The country's Ambassador Anatolio Ndong Mba mentioned that figure repeatedly in a press conference in the UN on August 14, including when asked if France was among the “Yes” votes. (He said the French ambassador told him he would support Equatorial Guinea).

 The press conference was to denounce the embezzlement prosecution of the country's vice president, son of President Obiang, in France. Alamy photos here. Ndong Mba said that France, and Switzerland too, had made their own money in Central Africa. Inner City Press asked, among other things, if  Ndong Mba thought France went after former Spanish colony Equatorial Guinea rather than “its” long time leaders, Paul Biya in Cameroon and the Bongo family in Gabon.

 Ndong Mba, ever the diplomat, said his country might want to join the Commonwealth. He lashed out at Transparency International and at mercenaries. Will these be topics of Equatorial Guinea's “thematic debates” when it has the monthly presidency of the Security Council? We'll see.
