Freedom of expression, in all its forms, is the very essence of democracy. Only with a thriving, free and independent media landscape, we can hold governments, businesses and society at large accountable. And precisely for this fundamental right, far too often, journalists and media workers are attacked, persecuted, harassed, or intimidated for carrying out their work. Most journalists are not wounded in the heat of war coverage, but suffer violence in our immediate surroundings. In 2018 alone, 94 journalists and media staff were killed in work-related incidents as reported by the International Federation of Journalists. Hundreds more have been subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention without ever having been tried in a court.

La tentative illégale de destituer le premier ministre Gomes et son gouvernement menace de faire échouer le processus électoral en cours en Guinée‑Bissau.

Languages:

The illegal attempt to dismiss Prime-Minister Gomes and his Government threatens to derail the ongoing electoral process in Guinea-Bissau. The Government, whose programme was recently approved by a parliamentary majority, is the sole and legitimate executive power in Guinea-Bissau, supported by regional and international partners.

In order to preserve stability and sustainable development, the electoral cycle should be pursued with the Presidential elections planned on November 24th 2019. The EU expects all stakeholders to avoid any actions that undermine this process.
