Ulisses Correia e Silva does not comment on the news about the African Bar Association that asks for the release of Alex Saab


The prime minister, Ulisses Correia e Silva, declined today to comment on the news in which the African Bar Association advises Cape Verde to respect the rule of law and “immediately release” Alex Saab.

Urged by journalists during the presentation of the Cape Verde National Hospital project, in the city of Praia, on the effects that the case of the Colombian businessman detained in Cape Verde since June is having, Ulisses Correia e Silva, simply stated that “The case is of justice and I do not talk about this specific case”.

It should be noted that as reported first-hand by this online, on Monday, the African Bar Association advised the Government of Cabo Verde to respect the rule of law and “immediately” release Alex Saab, otherwise sanctions will be demanded against him. the country to ECOWAS, AU and UN.

The African Bar Association also disputes the fact that Cape Verde has claimed that it is not bound by the decision of the ECOWAS Court, because it did not sign the 2005 protocol that extended the Court's authority to judge human rights cases.

According to the same statement, the “illegal” behavior of the Cape Verdean Government may not only “discredit” ECOWAS and the AU, but also pave the way for “big countries to violate the diplomatic status” of African diplomats.
