The above were arrested on 11 October at their homes in Malabo apparently for no other reason than their peaceful opposition to the government. Felipe Ondo Obiang, former parliamentarian, and Bonifacio Nguema Esono, former government minister, are two of the founder members of the opposition party, Republican Democratic Force, created in August 1995 but not yet legalized.
