Guinea's Justice Minister Alphonse Wright has announced an investigation into former President Alpha Conde's alleged involvement in treason, two years after he was overthrown by the military in a coup. The Public Prosecutor reportedly received a letter from Wright, requesting that the new ‘authorised’ investigation look into ‘alleged acts of treason, criminal conspiracy and complicity in the illicit possession of arms and ammunition.’ Al Jazeera reports that Conde, who was Guinea's first democratically elected leader, was ousted by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya's army squad in September 2021. The coup followed Conde's attempt to prolong his 10-year rule with a third term in office. Since then, Conde has been the subject of many legal investigations by Guinea's military authorities, including allegations of corruption, rape, kidnapping, torture, and assassination. Conde is currently living in exile in Turkey.
