Diary: Legalbrief Africa Old
The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda (FLEC), in response to a request by the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights (ACHPR), has submitted additional factual and legal briefings in the case Cabinda v Angola, ACHPR case no. 328/06.
According to the ACHPR, the matter of economic self-determination will be on the ACHPR November agenda in Brazzaville. FLEC has argued that Angola is exploiting the natural resources of Cabinda while denying any significant benefit to the people of Cabinda. FLEC is requesting that the African Commission appoint a Special Rapporteur to investigate the situation and make recommendations. Download the Admissibility Brief (PDF file)
