Two SA men appear in Malabo Court

Breaking News!
The two men currently being held on alleged drug trafficking charges in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea finally appeared in court and have been remanded in custody pending an appeal of their USD5million fine and twelve year sentence.
As I am not aware of all the facts, I cannot comment on the court case or verdict, but I am relieved to see that both men look healthy considering their recent arrest and detention.
In my case, I was illegally detained and denied access to legal representation whereas they have been officially tried in court and, from my experience living in Black Beach with others accused of similar crimes, it seems that the sentence for the two men reflects the severity of their alleged crimes and would not be considered unusual if they were in fact guilty.
However, I believe that they are being held on trumped up charges and doubt that they’ve been given a reasonable and fair opportunity to plead their case or prove their innocence.
Being 'official' prisoners could ensure better treatment for the men and with any luck they will be permitted to have contact with their loved ones as well as their legal representatives and the SA Embassy.
Their situation is a chilling reminder of what I experienced during my unlawful imprisonment at Black Beach, and we have kept the men and their loved ones in our prayers, always hopeful for a positive outcome, and that they are reunited with their family in South Africa soon.
