Malian political parties say leaders arrested amid crackdown

22/6/2024 13:01
        An alliance of political parties and civil society groups in junta-led Mali said several of their leaders were arrested on Thursday evening during a private meeting at a house of a former minister. The alliance in a statement demanded their prompt release. The West African country, which has been under military rule since a coup in 2020, in April issued a decree that restricted political life in the name of maintaining public order.
        
        The political parties and civil society groups did not say how many people were detained, but Boubacar Toure, a representative of one of the parties, told Reuters on Friday that 11 people had been arrested at the private meeting. Most of them were political leaders, he said.
        
        In a statement, the political parties and groups accused the authorities of pursuing "a path to dictatorship ... with the sole aim of staying in power and silencing all democratic and republican voices."
