Burkina Faso opens trial on 1987 Sankara assassination

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

A trial has begun in Burkina Faso for 14 people accused of involvement in the assassination of former President Thomas Sankara.
Sankara came to power in 1983 and was shot dead four years later.
He was a revolutionary leader who had called on African countries to default on unfair international debt.
Among the suspects is former President Blaise Compaore.
Compaore was deposed in 2014 following a popular uprising that brought an end to his 27-year rule.
He lives in exile in neighbouring Ivory Coast and has refused to take part in the trial.
His supporters see it as a political witch-hunt.

Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque reports.

    I don’t know the whole story, but i don’t think that Blaise was really is closet “friend”

    • Avatar Truly Zambian says:

      They describe him as that because he was the right-hand man to Thomas Sankara; he was Sankara’s deputy so pretty much his closest confidante.

    • Avatar Frédérick Lehoux says:

      @Truly Zambian I understand but with retrospect it make no sense to call him a close friend, i would have phrased it as “someone he thought was a friend”. Anyway i don’t want to look like i’m nitpicking on details.

    • Avatar Truly Zambian says:

      @Frédérick Lehoux I understand your point.

    France has been killing Pan-African leaders who want the fully independence of the continent. Who was the first to dropped bombs in Libya?. France was because Gadaffi was trying to liberate the minds of African leaders to stop all forms of exploitation from the west,and they got him like the.Lumumba’s, Sankara’s…..

    Sankar was killed by France government because Sankar was so hard for France government. Because Sankar will not sit down for his people to suffer for Frenchmen and women.

    The French secret service (SDEC) should be on trial, they are the one who assassinated him under the direct order of the late French President Mitterrand.

    Westernrs killed well known African icon and now helping with the investigation for there own crime they comitted years ago. Even now they are hunting African icons to slow down our progress. Look what they are doing in Ethiopia to delegetimize the current government and remove a leaders who have the same vision like Sankara. Africans watch out watch out all the sabotage going on in Africa right now and say no for new form Of western colonization.

    Seems like a good lad! Want to know what Role France played in the assassination, since his reforms ostensibly threatened their interests in the region, particularly that his approach would spread.
