Declaración de Djibloho

The Government of Equatorial Guinea has issued a strong statement in response to an article published by the Spanish newspaper El País on April 1, 2024, in which it is accused of using the presidential plane to transport kidnapped opponents. This article, titled “Obiang’s Presidential plane, a flying prison to transport kidnapped opponents” has generated a strong reaction from the Equatoguinean authorities, who denounce a lack of journalistic rigor and improper use of unverified sources of information.

Below is the official statement from the Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea:

The Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea categorically denies the unfounded information published by the Spanish newspaper El País in its article dated April 1, 2024, entitled: Obiang’s Presidential Plane, a Flying Prison for Transporting Kidnapped Opponents. Regrettably, various foreign media outlets echoed these claims without any prior research to verify the truthfulness of the reported facts before their dissemination, as required by journalistic ethics.

The Equatoguinean Government is not surprised that El País quoted among its sources a confidential report from the General Commissariat of Information of the Spanish police (CGI) and NGOs, as these entities are often used as tools to destabilize the Republic of Equatorial Guinea and intervene in its internal affairs. Otherwise, the passivity and silence of the Spanish intelligence services and their NGOs regarding acts of constant threat against the territorial integrity and political independence of Equatorial Guinea, organized from Spanish territory and directed by persons protected by its authorities and media, would not be explainable.

It is proven that the development of a country, its people, and its institutions cannot occur under constant aggression, coercion, and threat. Equatorial Guinea believes in peaceful diplomacy built without aggression, with respect, and on equal terms. Only in this way can objective, cooperative, and mutually beneficial relationships be built among all peoples.

Indeed, the Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea most energetically rejects the false accusations made by the Spanish newspaper in its aforementioned article, while also denying the truthfulness of its content in its entirety.
