Statement of the Spokesperson on the trial of Marcos Mavungo in Cabinda (Angola)

BRUSSELS, Belgium, May 25, 2016/APO (African Press Organization)/ --

The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Justice acquitted Mr. Marcos Mavungo of the charges of rebellion against the State. 

It should allow further progress in the full and unhindered implementation of the rights of association and manifestation enshrined in Angola's Constitution and international conventions and regional human rights instruments the country adhered to.
