Ceiba Intercontinental Airlines - Equatorial Guinea
Equatorial Guinea Airline Chief Denies Stealing Money
LIBREVILLE, Gabon (AFP)--The head of Equatorial Guinea's national airline denied Monday allegations he fled the country with EUR5 million in company money.
"It's all false, it's a plot against me," Ceiba director general Mamadou Jaye told AFP after a company official charged that he had vanished with the money since leaving on a business trip in late February.
"I am still the director general of Ceiba. The planes are flying. These are stories being told to hurt me," he said. "I did not take any money."
"It's an attempt to destabilise the government," Jaye said, adding that unnamed people were out to say that he should have not gotten the job.
Miguel Oyono, a top presidential adviser in Equatorial Guinea, said the government had recently requested a probe into the airline's management but that he was unaware of any embezzlement.
"To my knowledge, there is no embezzlement problem," he said.

Anyone know what has happened to Mamadou Jaye (Gaye), his whereabouts and what has happened to the money.??????

Journalist appears in court on defamation charges

Incident details

legal action

English Français
(JED/IFEX) - Rodrigo Angwe, a Malabo-based correspondent for Radio France Internationale (RFI) and Agence France Presse (AFP), was summoned to court on 15 April 2009 on charges of insult, slander and defamation after he alleged that the director general of Equatorial Guinea's national airline, CEIBA Intercontinental, had absconded with 3.5 million FCFA (approx. US$7 million).

According to a company source, Mamadou Jaye, director-general of CEIBA Intercontinental, fled the country between the end of February and early March 2009 with 3.5 million FCFA. The employee, whom Angwe believed to be the direct source of the story, later admitted that he had obtained the information from the Internet. At Angwe's initiative, RFI and AFP immediately published retractions and offered Jaye a right of reply.

Jaye, who feels he has been wronged by the piece, is demanding a settlement of 3.5 million FCFA - the same amount he was accused of embezzling - from Angwe and the two media outlets. His lawyer also cited in his complaint an article which appeared on http://www.guinea-ecuatorial.net,signed by one Mbo Oba and entitled "Mamadou Jaye brings down CEIBA Intercontinental". The lawyer believes Angwe wrote the article himself under a pseudonym.

The two parties met before an investigating judge on 15 April to attempt to reach a settlement out of court. As they were unable to do so, they are now waiting for a court date to be set.

Flight to Ghana

CEIBA Airline makes debut flight to Accra

CEIBA Intercontinental Airline, an airline from Equatorial Guinea, has started operations in Ghana to provide air services and deepen existing bonds between the two countries.
The move is expected to open up the two countries for increased business as well help connect the West and Central African regions.
The Minister for Roads and Transport, Mr Mike Hammah, said the the inauguration of the flight in Accra that the initiative was timely considering the difficulty of flight connections and limited availability of flights options for travel within the sub-region.
"The government of Ghana believes that the development of the region requires much more attention and integration than has been forthcoming in the past and we consider transportation especially air travel as an essential vehicle to move economic development at a quicker pace", he remarked.
The flight operations are in line with a Memorandum of Understanding between the Ghana Aeronautical and the Equatorial Guinea authorities recently signed for the provision of air services between the two countries.
He said under the terms airlines of the two countries were at liberty to operate air services for both passenger and cargo.
"The two states also concluded and initiated a main text on Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA), which now is expected to undergo ratification in the respective countries before the signing of the agreement", Mi Hammah added.
CEIBA Intercontinental is the national airline of Equatorial Guinea which will fly four times from Accra to Malabo via Cotonou and Abudjan and also land in Libreville, Brazaville, Bata and Pointe Noire.
The Chief Executive of CEIBA, Mr Mamadou Jaye, commended Ghanaian and Equatorial Guinean authorities for their swiftness and efficiency in implementing the open skies agreement between the two countries.
The opening of the Ghanaian skies, he acknowledged, would go a long way to boost the expansion efforts of the Equatorial Guinea national carrier which started operations only in 2007.
The relationship between Ghana and that country dates back decades, as Malabo, one of its major cities, was built out of the ancient Island of Francisco Miacias Nguema (Fernando Po), from where Tetteh Quarshie brought cocoa to Ghana that has become an important cash crop for the country.
The airline has dominance in the Central African Republic and is seeking to widen its presence in West Africa, with Accra as its hub within the sub-region.
Many of its nationals, civil servants and professionals of Equatorial Guinea are products of Ghanaian institutions of higher learning and are still coming here to train.
“The economic importance of Ghana in the sub-region as the first Anglophone country we have interactions with is bound to contribute to drawing our countries closer to the realisation of objectives we have set for ourselves,” Mr Mamadou said.

Letter to the President
Reporters Without Borders addressed an open letter yesterday to President Teodoro Obiang Nguema calling for the immediate release of Rodrigo Angue Nguema, the Malabo correspondent of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Radio France Internationale (RFI), who has been held in the capital’s Black Beach prison since 17 June for getting his facts wrong in a report. This is the letter:
Mr. Teodoro Obiang Nguema,
President of the Republic,
Malabo, Equatorial Guinea

Paris, 25 June 2009
Dear Mr. President
Reporters Without Borders, an organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, would like to express to you its deep concern about Rodrigo Angue Nguema, the Malabo correspondent of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Radio France Internationale (RFI), who has been held for the past eight days.
As you know, Mr. Nguema wrote a dispatch for AFP and RFI in April in which he said the head of the national airline Ceiba, Mamadou Jaye, had embezzled 3.5 billion CFA francs (5 million euros) and skipped the country. When the information turned out to be wrong, Mr. Nguema recognised this and apologised. Mr. Jaye nonetheless brought a libel suit against Mr. Nguema, demanding 5 million euros in damages, the amount he was alleged to have embezzled.
Mr. Nguema was incarcerated in Black Beach prison on 17 July on the orders of Malabo investigating judge Agustin Chicampo because he was unable to post bail of 20 million CFA francs (30,000 euros). Since then, he has only been able to receive two visits from his wife. AFP and RFI say they have sent Mr. Nguema the money to pay the bail but there have been problems that have prevented the payment being made.
We obviously hope this is not a deliberate ploy by the authorities to keep this journalist in prison. We point out that Mr. Nguema has not been tried and no date has so far been set for his trial. Reporters Without Borders believes that his detention is arbitrary, unjust and incomprehensible and we urge you to arrange for his immediate release.
We trust you will give this request your careful consideration. Respectfully
Jean-François Julliard
