In a telephone interview with a private radio station (FIM FM) on the morning of Saturday, November 4th, the Minister of Justice confirmed the escape of several detainees from the central prison in Conakry. “At 5:00 AM, heavily armed men stormed the central prison in Conakry. They managed to take away four defendants in the trial related to the events of September 28th,” stated Alphonse Charles Wright.
Among the escapees are Moussa Dadis Camara, the former leader of the CNDD junta, Claude Pivi, his former minister responsible for presidential security, and Moussa Tiegboro Camara, the former head of the special services.
All of them are accused in the trial concerning the massacre at Conakry’s stadium on September 28, 2009, which resulted in over 150 fatalities. Tiegboro has been “recaptured” and has already returned to the central prison, as confirmed by Alphonse Charles Wright.
