Popular Lawyer Joseph Fitzgerald Kamara has reacted to the trial of Ex-Guinean military president Moussa Dadis Camara. He cautioned current perpetrators that the long arm of the law will find those that are in conflict with the law because they cannot run.

The lawyer and politician posted on his Twitter page that “Guinea’s military ruler on trial over stadium massacre. The long arm of the law will reach perpetrators of crimes against humanity. You can run but not hide. A crime is a crime until prosecuted. Do justice to all, you never know tomorrow.”

Lawyer Kamara’s reaction came after Moussa Dadis Camara, was accused of responsibility for the 2009 massacre and mass rape of pro-democracy protesters by forces linked to him.

On Wednesday, exactly 13 years after the massacre, a trial accusing 11 former security and government officials of participating in the attack finally opened in Guinea.

The 2009 protest, which drew tens of thousands of demonstrators, was organized in response to a presidential bid by Guinea’s then-military ruler, Moussa Dadis Camara.
Camara, who came to power in a 2008 coup, has since lived in exile in Burkina Faso but returned to Guinea to stand trial. He has denied responsibility for the attack, placing the blame on errant soldiers.
