          The old liberal order is on its knees – I’ll miss it when it’s gone | Nick Cohen   
Putting kleptocrats like Teodorin Obiang on trial harks back to a time when we valued justice but the future looks less encouraging

It is hard to find reasons to be cheerful, but the sight of the law finally catching up with Teodorin Obiang is among them. His trial in Paris ought to represent the triumph of the globalisation of justice. Yet as liberalism shudders under the blows of Trump, Putin and Brexit, support for the values that can check men such as Obiang is fading. The case feels like yesterday’s news, even though Obiang’s prosecution is by any reasonable standard a sensational event.

This is the first time the serving minister of a tyrant has been arraigned on corruption charges. Obiang is something more than a mere official, I should add. Dictatorships can always turn into monarchies, as the strong man decides that only his brats are fit to succeed him. True to form, Obiang became Equatorial Guinea’s vice president as a reward for being the son of a dictator who has been in power since 1979. He is its Prince of Wales in all but name.

OPEC oil output reached a 2017 high in June as Libya and Nigeria continue a production recovery despite the bloc’s efforts to ease a global supply glut, the results of a new Reuters survey shows. The African duo is exempt from an OPEC deal to limit output to 32.5 million barrels per day through March 2018, but the June rate will surge to 32.72 million bpd – marking a 280,000 bpd increase from the previous month. This figure includes production from Equatorial Guinea, which only officially joined OPEC in May. Saudi Arabia and Kuwait…

"

Since 2010, the government of Equatorial Guinea has paid $3.1 million to Washington, D.C.-based communications firm Qorvis/MSLGroup to help with the image of its president, currently the longest-serving head of state in Africa, according to a Center for Public Integrity review of Justice Department disclosures.

Qorvis/MSLGroup has monitored media, drafted letters to the editor and distributed press releases on behalf of Equatorial Guinea to news outlets and the State Department, disclosures show. Press releases have highlighted everything from the country’s literacy rate and eradication of disease to its acceptance of political opponents, disclosures show.

Qorvis/MSLGroup and the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea did not respond to requests for comment.

          2017 Trafficking in Persons Report - Equatorial Guinea   
Publisher: United States Department of State - Document type: Annual Reports
          Letter From Buea To Yaounde   
Dear Ngwa Why is it that each time people the react to Cameroonian authorities wrong-doing, they would say the people are being influenced by some people? University of Buea, UB, authorities are again trying to shed responsibility for the recent strike action that resulted in hundreds of students arrested, tortured and whisked into detention. There are reports of female students raped. UB Vice Chancellor, VC, Dr. Nalova Lyonga, has resorted to the same excuse that has been employed over the years and now sounds like a broken record. Whenever university authorities falter and students react, the authorities would claim that the students are being “manipulated” either by opposition political parties or by movements like the Southern Cameroons National Council, SCNC, which is fighting against the marginalisation and subjugation of Anglophone Cameroon or the Southern Cameroons. This is usually done to seek the sympathy of the CPDM Francophone authorities in Yaounde to come to their protection. In 1995, when the students got restive over what they termed the high handedness of the then VC, Dr. Dorothy Limunga Njeuma, it was alleed that they were being manipulated by an opposition party. The student leader, Ebenezer Akwanga, and others were suspended, Akwanga was hounded by security forces until in 1997; he was arrested, charged with terrorist activities and sentenced to 27 years in the Kondengui Maximum Security Prison in Yaounde. In 2005, when the students went on strike against inadequate infrastructure they were accused of being sponsored by the SCNC. The Vice Chancellor and then Southwest Governor, Ejake Mbonda, claimed that the SCNC had brought guns and hidden around the bushes at the university and were using the students to destabilize the institution and incite armed insurrection. Due to the allegation a military helicopter was sent by Yaounde authorities with combat ready troops hat combed the university area and the entire Buea municipality, but tracked down no arms. IN the confirmation with the stone-throwing students, the troops shot and killed two students and wounded many others. The University of Buea Student Union, UBSU executive that led the strike, like Walters Angwere, were blacklisted and witch-hunted by university authorities and local administrators. In 2006, UBSU organised a strike against the short-changing of the list of successful candidates in the exam for admission into the Medical School, by Yaounde authorities. Two people were shot by the troops brought into campus and in the neighbouhoods of the university- one of them a student. The leaders of the strike, Donatus Asu Wanobi, Ashu Kingsley, were hounded until they escaped to Nigeria to avoid being arrested and tried in military tribunals on trumped charges. During the strike of 2009, the students were again tagged with manipulation by the SCNC. The leaders; Abia David, Nguve Fred, Tabogo Eno-Jah, Bara Mark, were arrested, tortured and sentenced by kangaroo courts. Their family homes were often stormed and siblings beaten. Because of heavy police presence on campus targeting the student leaders, they were forced to abandon their studies and go into hiding. Some, like Ayuk Tang, Wabi Frankline, Kenyu Serge Herve, Tata Kwami Mbinglo, Tchaumou Marie Loue, fled neighbouring countries like Nigeria, Chad and Equatorial Guinea. Just like others before them, their names entered the black book of the administration and each time they are around, they are picked up and tortured and locked up in prisons without trial, in a bid to extract information on their mission. In 2013, UBSU organised a strike predicated on the handling of the association’s dues. Yet the authorities said they were being manipulated by the lecturers’ union. Abia David, UB student leader; Pente Raphael, former student activist of Yaounde I University and of Catholic University of Central Africa, and others, were charged with vandalism. Pente was hunted right to his native Batibo village. The student union was emasculated and replaced with the Students Representative Council now answerable to the authorities. This time around, in 2016 the student who spelled out their demands clearly that they wanted FCFA 10.000 penalty for late registration cancelled and the presidential grant of FCFA 50,000 paid to them, are again said to have been manipulated by the SCNC. During the clamp down on the students, the homes of both past and present leaders were stormed and occupants beaten and some (non-students) carried into detention. Persons found in the streets near such homes and university hostels were also arrested (whether students or not), and ferried into detention. The police and gendarme cells in Buea were full until some were transferred to the SONARA Gendarmerie Brigade in Limbe – some 30km away. Hundreds of the students were detained in overcrowded sails and under horrible conditions where there were subjected to torture, frequent molestation, sexual abuse. Six of the suspect leaders are still detained awaiting trial and imprisonment. Meantime, those picked along the streets or in the neighbouhoods, who are not students of UB, are the categories of people the university authorities are now brandishing as having infiltrated the ranks of students and staged the strike. It is feared that such people, as usual, will be tried and jailed. And the security authorities who arrested them are not helping matters by stating the circumstances under which these persons were arrested so as to clear their names. It goes without say that when the computers promised university students by President Biya will come and, for one or the other reason, they are not distributed, […]

There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight LESIBIAN man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved.Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesbian clients.If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .
