Guinea’s Court of Repression of Economic and Financial Offences has issued a directive seeking to impose travel restrictions on all directors of administrative and financial affairs within ministerial departments.
The prosecutor has raised suspicions of their involvement in financial embezzlement. However, some legal experts are contesting this move, arguing that Aly Touré is overstepping his authority.
They maintain that while the public prosecutor can take administrative measures to prevent the commission of an offense, he does not possess the authority to curtail the freedom of the accused.
Such prerogatives are specifically reserved for investigating magistrates.
