Official Title

A resolution deploring the rape and assault of women in Guinea and the killing of political protesters on September 28, 2009.

Summary

Deplores the rape and assault of women and the killing of political protesters in Guinea and urges the prosecution of those responsible for such violence. Urges the President, in coordination with leaders from the European Union (EU) and the African Union (AU), to consider punitive measures that could be taken against senior officials in Guinea complicit in the violence and the atrocities against women and other gross human rights violations. Encourages the President to remain engaged in the political situation in Guinea and to convey that the blatant abuse of women will not be tolerated. Calls on President Blaise Compaore of Burkina Faso to ensure that Captain Camara does not return to Guinea. Recognizes: (1) that the first steps set forth in the Joint Declaration of Ouagadougou have been initiated with the naming of a prime minister and urges all parties to continue to adhere to the agreement; and (2) the importance of the multilateral observer mission to help ensure peace and security in Guinea during the transition period.
