Amnesty International has received the names of some of the military officers
arrested around 20 February 1995 in connection with the alleged attempt to
overthrow the government. All but one of the new names were arrested in Bata:
Rufino Ntutumu Abago was arrested in Malabo but was taken to Bata where he
is being held. All the military detainees and Agapito Ona are being held
incommunicado within the Presidential Palace grounds in Bata. The Presidential
Palace is in an isolated part of town not easily accessible to the public.
Amnesty International has also learned that Severo Moto Nsá and Tomás Eló were
tried between 2 and 6 March 1995 in Malabo. Both men were convicted of corruption.
Severo Moto was also convicted of insulting the Head of State and was sentenced
to two and a half years in prison and to pay a fine of 50 million Cfa (Central
Africa Franc, equivalent to US $50,000). Tomás Eló was sentenced to 2 years'
imprisonment. Their trial was unfair in that the defence counsel was not allowed
to call certain witnesses and the prosecution failed to present evidence to
support the charges against the two men.
Amnesty International is concerned that, immediately after the sentences were
passed, Severo Moto Nsá was taken to Blackbeach prison in Malabo instead of
being placed under house arrest until his appeal is due to be heard. Tomás
Eló was also returned to Blackbeach prison after sentencing. Both men are now
2
being held incommunicado.
