On June 24, 2004 the General Secretary of Communist Youth of Côte d’Ivoire, Habib Dodo, was murdered by Student Federation [FESCI] of Côte d’Ivoire activists.
During a press conference held on June 23 in Williamsville, M. Ekissi Achy, secretary general of the Revolutionary Communist Party of Côte d’Ivoire, called for the reopening of the case Habbib Dodo. To believe his words, Habbib Dodo, the first Secretary General of the youth of that party and a founding member of the General Association of the youth of the Communist Party, was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by a gang belonging to FESCI [Student Federation of Cote d’Ivoire (FESCI)].
After seven years of procedure not followed and the disappearance of the prosecution case Habbib Dodo Abidjan, Mr. Achy Ekissi calls the new government to reopen this folder to see justice done. He therefore stressed that “Comrade Kouadio Kouadio Richard, also a member of AGEECI was murdered in the same conditions. For the perpetrators, as these young people had to wear them, the flag of the FESCI is to say, prevent pupils and students to question the descent into hell Ivorian school. While the enemies of the Ivorian school, freedom and democracy have declared persona non grata. ”
To inquire about this new record, Mr. Achy Ekissi accompanied by the provisional president of the collective fight against impunity, Drissa Sheriff and the Secretary General of AGEECI Séka Jules went to the floor of Abidjan. But against all odds, he was brought to their attention, the disappearance of the file. It has meant that “we are not surprised by this information, because already in 2008, the major sponsors of the FESCI, reassured the defendants that the case was closed at the level of justice.”
In the words of the latter, a notion of reopening of the case will be presented to the public prosecutor and the minister of state for justice to be done about this crime. Because he said the duty to remember, is binding on all, criminals are accountable for their crimes. Secretary General of AGEECI, Jules Séka reaffirmed the continuing struggle begun by Habbib to achieve the full opening of freedoms, democratic practice in education, the cessation of all forms of violence and the decision of all crimes committed in education.
Continuing, he said that in this sense, a collective fight against impunity has been created. The provisional president of this group, Sheriff Drissa invites victims to be identified so that repairs be made to victims in order to guard against other crimes.
