Chad: Borrell condemns violence

Brussels 23.10.2022 “The European Union strongly condemns the violence perpetrated today in several towns in Chad which has led to the death of some fifty people. The repression of demonstrations and the excessive use of force constitute serious attacks on the freedoms of expression and demonstration which undermine the ongoing transition process” reads the Statement by High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell on the violence in Chad.

“The European Union calls on the transitional authorities to quickly identify the perpetrators of this violence and bring them to justice.

“The European Union reiterates the importance of a rapid return to constitutional order and of a time-limited transition that guarantees respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. A real engagement with all civil and political actors is also essential in order to guarantee the credibility and legitimacy of the ongoing process”.
