  U.S. Government Moves Against African Dictator's Son  

The United States Department of Justice filed an asset forfeiture claim against property worth over $70 million owned by Teodorin Nguema Obiang, the 41 year-old first son of Equatorial Guinea’s President.

  An African Dictator's Son And His Very Lavish Toys  

While most of Equatorial Guinea's citizens live in abject poverty, Teodorin Nguema Obiang, the 41 year-old son of the president, apparently spends millions on art, homes and a jet.


D.C. Foundation Closes Its Doors Following Summit Glorifying African Dictator.


There was a time when the Sullivan Foundation´s work for a better Africa commanded enormous respect in Washington. In part, this was due to its namesake, iconic civil rights leader Rev. Leon H. Sullivan. Corporate codes of conduct that Sullivan developed, called the ”Sullivan principles,” were used by America´s largest corporations for decades.

The foundation´s annual summit also regularly drew world leaders to Africa—from George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to General Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton. Until 2010, President Clinton was listed as an honorary member of the foundation´s board.[MORE: Politicians Bow Out of Summit Hosted by Africa´s Longest Serving Dictator]

Sometime in the past few months, the Sullivan Foundation quite suddenly—and quietly—closed its doors. And it isn´t saying why.

The foundation´s CEO and president (and daughter of Rev. Sullivan) Hope Masters, who once had an active presence for the foundation on the web, has now gone silent online. The Sullivan Foundation´s phone number has been disconnected. A visit to the foundation´s former offices shows it now exclusively houses GoodWorks International, an Africa-focused global firm run by Hope´s husband Carlton Masters. Their daughter Vanessa Masters, who answered the phone at GoodWorks, says she isn´t ”particularly interested” in talking about why it closed. And the organization´s web site and Twitter accounts don´t appear to have been updated since August.

  Equatorial Guinea: Arrest Highlights Arbitrary Justice  

Washington, DC) – The arbitrary arrest and detention of a former business associate of the son of Equatorial Guinea’s president demonstrates the government’s continued violation of basic rights, EG Justice and Human Rights Watch said today. The arrest came just days before Equatorial Guinea is to host an event designed to improve its global image.
Florentino Manguire Eneme Ovina was detained on August 11, 2012, in the city of Bata, and transferred on August 13 to the central police station in Malabo, the capital, according to sources close to him. No warrant was issued authorizing his arrest, nor was he brought before a judge within the 72-hour period required under national law, the sources said..
Florentino Manguire’s arrest and continued detention are further examples of the lack of rule of law in Equatorial Guinea. Manguire has been repeatedly jailed without formal charges, raising concerns that he is being harassed for perceived disloyalty to President Obiang’s son, not for any crime.

Hope Sullivan Masters is Defending the Indefensible.


The Sullivan Foundation is targeting African Americans in the diaspora in their attempt to legitimize the Obiang regime. The response from Leon H. Sullivan Foundation CEO Hope Sullivan Masters to the criticisms surrounding the groups’ summit is nothing more than a desperate attempt to defend the indefensible: the aiding and abetting of one of Africa’s worst dictators.
Hope Sullivan Masters, daughter of the late Leon H. Sullivan, is under intense international criticism for the decision to host the Sullivan Foundation’s 9th Biennial Africa Rising Summit in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. The four-day summit will be hosted by none other than President Teodoro Obiang, who has been in power since 1979, and whose plunder of Equatorial Guinea’s oil revenues has enriched him and his family to the tune $600 million. Numerous African American VIPs from the worlds of politics, business, media, and entertainment are planning to attend.
Sullivan’s response posted Monday evening lashed at out her critics: journalists, bloggers, and human rights organizations. She calls the Foundation’s detractors “misinformed individuals who are clearly hell-bent on throwing rocks at others.” She also questions their professionalism and integrity: these journalists and human rights organizations make claims “without fact checking…of their outrageous claims of ongoing abuse and corruption [in Equatorial Guinea]”.

  Equatorial Guinea´s dictator attempts to rebrand himself as a champion of human rights with the help of a Clinton-endorsed charity  
  Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo´s PR campaign begins on 20 August, when he welcomes 4,000 delegates, including world leaders, Hollywood actors, Emmy-winning pop stars, famous athletes, and a cross-section of US television celebrities, to the city of Malabo
He is the dictator’s dictator: a spectacular kleptocrat who seized power in a coup and has presided over Equatorial Guinea for more than three decades, imprisoning political opponents, censoring hostile media coverage and rigging Presidential elections, which he has occasionally won with more than 95 per cent of the vote.
Now Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, whose appetite for the proceeds of thuggish corruption saw him described by the US authorities as the head of “an ongoing family criminal conspiracy,” is attempting to perform bizarre career volte face. Despite his status as Africa’s longest-serving dictator, he will this month seek to rebrand himself on the international stage - as a principled advocate for human rights.

Comics vs. Dictatorship in Equatorial Guinea




Obi’s Nightmare (La Pesadilla de Obi) is about Teodoro “Obi” Obiang, real life President of the resource-rich West-Central African country of Equatorial Guinea. In the graphic novel, artist Ramon Esono (also known as Jamón y Queso) and his collaborators ask what would be the worst nightmare of the rich, powerful, and corrupt leader of a poor, struggling African population? Becoming an ordinary citizen of his own country, of course! Hilarity and tragedy ensues as Obi navigates the education, health, and prison systems he created in Equatorial Guinea.The Spanish-language text for Obi’s Nightmare is 50% complete and its artists are waiting for funds to purchase the material necessary to illustrate the book. We won’t be able to publish the book without your support, so please pledge generously and promote our project to your friends and colleagues.

  Graphic novels are a powerful medium for story-telling and satire. They allow us to penetrate into spaces that conventional media, radio, and TV do not reach, especially in repressive societies. Through the fictional perspective of the comic, Jamón y Queso captures how unreal and absurd life in Equatorial Guinea can be  

Obiang’s American Enablers

For more than a decade, the dictator of Equatorial Guinea and his family members have spent enormous sums of money in the United States on real estate and extravagant purchases at stores like Dolce & Gabanna and Louis Vuitton. In late October, the American government finally acted to halt the collective shopping spree of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema’s inner circle when it filed a civil asset forfeiture complaint seeking to take possession of tens of millions of dollars in assets owned by his son and heir apparent.The complaint, filed by the Justice Department and U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said that the son, Teodorin, who is the country’s minister of forestry, had used money laundered into the United States to buy a $30 million estate in Malibu, a private plane and assorted Michael Jackson memorabilia, including a “white crystal covered ‘Bad Tour’ glove.”“Grand corruption isn’t just a local problem, it’s an international one, and oftentimes involves multiple jurisdictions,” said Mark Vlasic, a law professor at Georgetown University, who previously served as the head of operations of the World Bank’s Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative.“Corrupt officials don’t use PayPal accounts to move large sums of money,” Vlasic said. “They need people to assist them, and their facilitators should also be held accountable for any crimes they may have committed.”

Obiang Should Tackle Corruption, Poverty, and Repression in Oil-Rich Equatorial Guinea

  The president of Equatorial Guinea should take concrete steps to respect human rights, address corruption, and improve transparency, Global Witness, Human Rights Watch, Open Society Foundations, and Oxfam America said today. On June 15, the four groups will meet with President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo in Washington, DC, to press for meaningful reforms.Corruption, poverty, and a very poor human rights record are all hallmarks of today’s Equatorial Guinea.Vast oil revenues fund lavish lifestyles for the small elite surrounding the president, while most of the country’s people are denied access to basic economic and social rights, and so are trapped in poverty. President Obiang exercises extensive control over all branches of government. Civil society groups are not permitted to operate freely and independently, and freedom of speech and the press are routinely curtailed.There have been numerous foreign investigations into high-level corruption tied to Equatorial Guinea’s natural resource wealth. This week, the US Department of Justice amended its October 2011 legal filing seeking to seize assets of Obiang’s eldest son, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, known as Teodorín, alleging that he had obtained hundreds of millions of dollars through corruption. Other corruption and money-laundering investigations implicating Teodorín or other officials are ongoing in France and Spain.  
  Ex-ambassador hosts D.C. soiree for African strongman  
Various members of the Washington diplomatic elite gathered in the D.C. suburbs last night to honor and celebrate Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the president of Equitorial Guinea, whose American real estate empire, allegedly financed through corruption and oppression, is now being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department. "Ambassador Carlton Masters and Hope Masters Cordially invite you to join us along with His Excellency Teodoro Obiang Mbasago, Presidential Host of the Ninth Leon H. Sullivan Summit FOR Cocktails, Dinner and Dancing," read the invitation to a reception at the Masters residence in Chevy Chase Thursday night. Masters, who was the first special envoy of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) on African Diasporan Relations, is now the president and CEO of Goodworks International, a lobbying firm that brings together mostly energy companies and African governments. He also started a company with former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo. Also late last year, the Justice Department and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) filed a civil asset forfeiture complaint against Obiang's son Teodorin, the country's minister of forestry. The U.S. government is going after more than $70 million of Teodorin's assets allegedly laundered in the United States, including a Malibu mansion, a rare Ferrari, a $38.5 million Gulfstream G-V jet, and roughly $1.1 million worth of Michael Jackson memorabilia.

Annual Report 2012 IN Equatorial Guinea

  Background  Legal, constitutional or institutional developments , Arbitrary arrests and detentions Detention without trial Freedom of expression – journalists Freedom of assembly Prisoners of conscience – releases Amnesty International Reports Amnesty International Visits lign="justify"> Political tension increased throughout the year and the authorities continued to stifle opposition by harassing, arresting and briefly detaining political activists. There was an upsurge in the number of arrests in the run-up to the AU summit in June. In November, at least 30 detainees, apparently held as hostages, were acquitted by a military court and released. They had been held since October 2010 in incommunicado detention without charge or trial. Five prisoners of conscience and 17 political prisoners were released in a presidential pardon. Freedom of expression and assembly continued to be curtailed and journalists were briefly detained or suspended from their functions. Constitutional reforms giving more power to the President were approved in a referendum in November.  
  Background In March, when Equatorial Guinea’s report under the UN Universal Periodic Review was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council, the government rejected all recommendations related to the abolition of the death penalty and ratification of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
Also in March, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), an international voluntary initiative seeking to promote transparency in oil, gas and mining, rejected Equatorial Guinea’s candidacy. The country had failed to comply with requirements, including participation in the EITI process by independent civil society groups and submission of an oil revenue report.
In June, President Obiang publicly pledged to improve human rights, expand press freedom, ensure judicial credibility and introduce transparency and accountability in the oil industry. None of these pledges was implemented by the end of the year. In July, President Obiang decreed Portuguese as the country’s third official language to support its bid for full membership of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), but the CPLP postponed making a decision. In August, the UN Working Group on the use of mercenaries visited the country at the invitation of the government. However, they were not allowed to visit prisons. in October, UNESCO suspended indefinitely the awarding of the UNESCO-Obiang international prize for the Study of Life Sciences. The award had been postponed in March and in June following worldwide opposition by NGOs and individuals.

Equatorial Guinea: Where oppression still reigns


Johannesburg (South Africa) - Over the past year, the world has watched with great interest as the Arab Spring has dissolved decades of repression. Citizens weary of injustice have stood up and demanded control of their destinies. I wish that oppressed people everywhere in Africa could benefit from the dramatic changes we are witnessing in North Africa.

The people of Equatorial Guinea, for instance, an oil-rich country home to the continent´s

  longest-ruling leader, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, have endured decades of repression, and many remain mired in poverty despite the country´s considerable natural resource wealth. Torture, extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detentions, and harassment of journalists and civil society groups have been well documented by the United Nations and other sources.  

Equatorial Guinea executions over coup plot condemned


Obiang Nguema has survived several coup attempts The execution of four men in Equatorial Guinea for involvement in an attack on the presidential palace last year has been condemned by a rights group.Amnesty International says the men, former military and government officials, were put to death within an hour of being sentenced.They were convicted by an army tribunal on Saturday, with no chance of appeal.Amnesty says the men were living in exile in Benin at the time of the attempted presidential assassination.President Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who has ruled the oil-rich nation since 1979 after toppling his uncle in a coup, has survived several coup attempts.The most infamous was in 2004, involving former British mercenary Simon Mann, who was pardoned by Equatorial Guinea's leader last year.


4 executed in Equatorial Guinea coup plot

  Equatorial Guinea´s government on Tuesday defended the execution of four alleged coup plotters just an hour after they were condemned in a case that Amnesty International called a ”pretense of justice.”The main opposition coalition described the executions as ”political assassinations.”
The government of the oil-rich but impoverished Central African nation said in a statement that the former military and government officials were given a fair trial in open court. Two colonels defended them before a military tribunal, the government said on its website.
The four were convicted Saturday of terrorism, high treason, attempting to assassinate the head of state and to overthrow the government.
Others tried in the plot received jail sentences ranging from one to 20 years.
Amnesty International said the four men were abducted by Guinean security forces in January from neighboring Benin, where they had been living in exile for years, including during the Feb. 11, 2009 attack for which they were convicted.

Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity

  Africa抯 biodiversity holds an ernomous potential of transforming the continent抯 agricultural and industrial systems to contribute to economic growth and poverty reduction. The unique species of plants and animals as well as ecosystems constitute the continent抯 natural wealth. However, this diversity is underutilized and is being lost at alarming rates. Conserving and promoting sustainable use of biodiversity is one of the challenges that African countries have committed themselves to addressing.  

Rights group slams Equatorial Guinea leader’s pledges of reforms in transparency, human rights

 The longtime leader of Equatorial Guinea pledged Monday to make sweeping reforms in transparency and human rights in the country he has ruled for three decades. But an international rights group called it empty posturing from a corrupt leader intent on attracting investors.
Teodoro Obiang Nguema told a meeting of investors and business leaders in
  Cape Town that his five-point plan will dramatically change conditions in the West African country, which is regularly criticized for its corruption, poor human rights record and grinding poverty despite its tremendous oil wealth.Obiang said the 10-year plan includes investing “substantial” oil revenues in public projects such as schools, hospitals and infrastructure. He said he also will invite the African Union to review and suggest reforms for the legal system and will bring in the Red Cross to assess the human rights situation.He said he hopes the plan will “invite investors from across the globe to consider the exciting possibilities with us.” He spoke in Spanish while reading from a prepared statement.  

Controversy over Equatorial Guinea’s $121 million compensation for Nigerians

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs feels constrained, following the article on the above subject matter which was published in the Punch of Monday 14 June, 2010 edition, to issue this rejoinder, to correct the facts which have been largely misrepresented in the news report.
It is important to state that contrary to the charges of indifference levelled against officials in the Ministry and in the Mission in Malabo – Equatorial Guinea – over the plight of our
   citizens, the Nigerian government has been fully seized with the matter since the news first broke in February, 2009. Aside from the visit by the then Foreign Minister,Ojo Maduekwe, CFR, to Malabo on 26th February, 2009, as Special Envoy of President Umaru Musa Yar‘Adua; the follow-up visit of the then Hon. Minister of State II for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Bagudu Hirse, on the 7th of August, 2009; and the Joint Commission meetings in Abuja, from August 31-01 Septemeber, 2009, provided opportunities for fruitful consultations with the Equatorial Guinean authorities, which finally led to the release of many Nigerians from Equatorial Guinean prisons, including the release of 55 crewmen of seven (7) canoes that were confiscated by the Guinean authorities.  

African Human Rights Defenders or Colonialists? Seeking Justice in Equatorial Guinea


“Some of us are in exile today because the government of Teodoro Obiang Nguema unjustly persecuted, arbitrarily detained, threatened directly or indirectly, or denied us entry into Equatorial Guinea. Others remain in exile because of pending judgments against us, entered during our absence from Equatorial Guinea, for expressing our political views or denouncing the government’s human rights record. In short, under the current regime there are no freedoms of expression, association, or assembly in Equatorial Guinea.”They argue that, in this context, the prize amounts to international endorsement of Obiang’s systematic political repression, his deprivation of the most basic needs of his people, and his blatant use of public funds for personal gain. They believe the funds should be used instead “for the purchase of books, benches, and other such rudimentary educational materials” for students in Equatorial Guinea, in the hopes that the country may one day produce scientists and other professionals capable of becoming future recipients of international prizes. Their move has garnered international attention, receiving support from over 35 nongovernmental organizations and from hundreds of scientists, journalists, scholars, and others asking UNESCO to cancel the prize.


Freedom in the World.

  2009 Key Developments: Spanish authorities launched an investigation into alleged money laundering by Equatorial Guinea’s government in January 2009, and in February unidentified gunmen attacked the presidential palace, prompting the authorities to deny speculation that the incident was a coup attempt. President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the longest-serving ruler in sub-Saharan Africa, easily won a new term in the November presidential election, which was widely regarded as rigged.
Political Rights:Equatorial Guinea is not an electoral democracy and has never held credible elections. President Obiang dominates the political system. The 100 members of the unicameral House of People’s Representatives wield little power, and 99 seats belong to the ruling pro-presidential coalition. The activities of the few opposition parties are closely monitored by the government. Obiang denies that a 2009 attack on the presidential palace was a coup attempt, although several opposition members were subsequently arrested. Equatorial Guinea is considered one of the most corrupt countries in the world, and Obiang and members of his inner circle continue to amass huge personal profits from the country’s oil windfall.
Civil Liberties: Although the constitution guarantees press freedom,

EITI Board agrees status of 20 countries

  The Board of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, the international standard for improved transparency in countries’ natural resource sector, met in Berlin 15-16 April. The Board discussed the request of 17 of the 32 countries currently implementing the EITI to extend their deadline for completing EITI Validation. In addition, Sao Tome and Principe had applied to voluntarily suspend their EITI Candidate status. The EITI Board has considered these applications on a case by case basis in accordance with the EITI rules. An extension of the Validation deadline is granted only if the country demonstrates that exceptional and unforeseeable circumstances outside the country’s control. Having considered the merits of each applications, the Board agreed to grant extensions to 16 countries[1]. It agreed new deadlines in each case. The Board did not approve the request for an extension of the deadline from Equatorial Guinea. Sao Tome and Principe’s application for a voluntary suspension was not approved. As a consequence of these decisions, these countries are no longer considered implementing (EITI Candidate) countries. Both countries are welcome to reapply to become EITI candidate countries once the barriers to effective implementation have been addressed.The EITI Chairman, Peter Eigen, made the following comment:

Keeping Foreign Corruption Out of the United States: Four Case Histories

  Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations
The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has scheduled a hearing, ”Keeping Foreign Corruption Out of the United States: Four Case Histories,” on Thursday, February 4, 2010, at 9:30 a.m., in Room 342 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
The Subcommittee hearing will examine how some politically powerful foreign officials, their relatives, or close associates – referred to in international agreements as “Politically Exposed Persons” or PEPs – have used the services of U.S. professionals and U.S. financial institutions to bring millions of dollars in suspect funds into the United States to advance their interests. Four case histories will illustrate how some PEPs have used U.S. lawyers, realtors, escrow agents, lobbyists, bankers, and others to circumvent U.S. anti-money laundering and anti-corruption safeguards. It will also look at how some U.S. professionals have actively helped PEPs avoid bank scrutiny or facilitated suspect transactions with no questions asked.

Human Rights Watch

Conditions in Equatorial Guinea cast serious doubt about the credibility of the forthcoming presidential election, Human Rights Watch said today.
President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who has ruled the oil-rich West African country since seizing power in a coup in 1979, is widely expected to easily win the presidential vote scheduled for November 29, 2009.
"President Obiang claims that he's committed to the rule of law," said Arvind Ganesan, director of the Business and Human Rights Program at Human Rights Watch. "But his actions time and again are those of a dictator determined to hang onto power and control of the country's oil money."
There are indications that visas might be restricted again this year. In mid-November, while speaking at an oil and gas conference in London, the vice minister of mines, industry and energy announced that the government was instituting a new visa regime "to defend Equatorial Guinea" from "people without good intentions.

Equatorial Guinea:One-Man Rule in Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea, a geographical speck on the landscape of Africa, is surely one of the sad stories of the continent. The late President Masie Nguema Biyogo, the uncle of the present dictator, remains one of the worst tyrants ever produced by Africa. His 11-year reign in Equatorial Guinea was characterized by brutal massacres and horrifying atrocities against his compatriots.For instance, about 150 alleged coup plotters were executed at the national stadium on December 25, 1975 with the killings accompanied by the sound of a band playing Mary Hopkin's tune, **Those Were The Days**! An estimated 7,000 Europeans were said to have emigrated from a country of about 300,000 population, while about 45,000 Nigerians were evacuated in 1976. In all, between September 1968 when Nguema Biyogo was inaugurated as president and August 1979 when he was overthrown, an estimated 80,000 citizens were reported to have been killed by the regime with about one-fourth of that number fleeing into exile.

Equatorial Guinea:President Confident of Electoral Landslide

So confident is President Teodoro Obiang Nguema of the outcome of Equatorial Guinea's election on Sunday that he expects to win by the same margin as in 2002 - with 97.1 percent of the vote, reports Le Pays of Ouagadougou.
The newspaper also reports that Obiang Nguema, who came to power in a coup in 1979, could very possibly achieve his objective, since the only opposition leader in the country's parliament, Plácido Micó Abogo, is not strong enough to provide a real challenge to the ruling party.Moreover, says the paper, all state power is concerntrated in the hands of the president and his ,
  associates  who will do everything to make sure he gets re-elected.

Dear Mr. President BUSH


I am deeply concerned that aforementioned statements and actions by you and high ranking administration officials directly contradict the policy you articulated in your second inaugural address when you said that the United States will encourage reform in other governments by making clear that success in our relation "will require the decent treatment of their own people."


The government of Equatorial Guinea has an abysmal track record in the area of human rights, democracy and transparency. According to this year's Country Reports on Human Rights, "(t)he government's human rights record remained poor, and the government continues to commit or condone serious abuses," including torture by


the security forces, abridgement of citizens' right to change their government, government and judicial corruption, and severe restrictions on freedom of the press. President Obiang, who took over Equatorial Guinea in a coup in 1979, has never stood for free and fair elections. The State Department found that "(t)he 2002 presidential election was marred by extensive fraud and intimidation," and "the international community widely criticized the 2004 parliamentary elections as seriously flawed."
