MONROVIA, LIBERIA – West African leaders including President George Weah have imposed travel bans and a freeze of the financial assets of Guinea’s coup leaders and their families.
The decisions were announced after an extraordinary summit of the Authority of Heads of States and Government of ECOWAS in Accra, Ghana, Thursday, September 16, 2021.
According to a communiqué, the sanctions are expected to put more pressure on the military junta to restore constitutional rule.
They called on the African Union, the UN, and their international partners to help enforce the travel bans and financial sanctions against the junta and their families.
The regional bloc also wants the conduct of elections within six months and insists that none of the military leaders be allowed to contest the polls.
