Spain expresses its concern over the attack on the headquarters of the Citizens for Innovation party in Malabo

Reports of unusual violence between opponents and security forces indicate a climate of tension that is incompatible with the dialogue required during the current electoral period.

Spain calls for restraint and the opening of channels of dialogue between all political forces and civil society to allow the elections to be held in an atmosphere of tolerance and openness.

Spain appeals to the Equatoguinean authorities to act prudently and responsibly at such a delicate time.

In this context, Spain expresses the need to preserve legal certainty and procedural guarantees for all persons detained.
