                         MAURICIO LUBOTA "SABATA", Operational Commander of Northern Region of FLEC / FAC, was found dead


In less than three weeks another Commander of the Cabindan Resistance was found dead on the border between Massabi (Cabinda) and the Republic of Congo.


On 19.03.2011, MAURICIO LUBOTA "SABATA", Operational Commander of Northern Region of FLEC / FAC, the faction led by Nzita Tiago, was found dead.

According to the statement of Stanislau Boma to the Voice of America, Commander Sabata had been abducted from Pointe-Noire before being murdered in the same circumstances as “Pirilampo”, Chief of Staff of FLEC/FAC, abducted and assassinated by Angolan security forces on 02.03.2011.


Stanislau Boma did not reveal the source of his statement, as we know that "Sabata" was not part of his faction that is involved in the alleged negotiations with the government, according to Alexandre Tati recently interviewed by the Voice of America said that they had not abandoned the negotiations.


The people of Cabinda question once again the silence and indifference of the leadership of the FLEC / FAC lead by Nzita Tiago on the wave of kidnappings and assassinations of Cabindan military resistants linked to this faction.


In the face of those criminal actions perpetrated by Angolan secret services with the complicity of their agents of cabindan origin, Cabindan refugees living in Republic of Congo fear for the vulnerability they are exposed and urged the authorities of the host country to ensure their protection of ongoing barbarism.

It is not by killing those who oppose the occupation of Cabinda that the issue of Cabinda will be solved. The Civilization recommends dialogue for the resolution of disputes, and the regime of Luanda should prove that.


The Liberal Forum for the Emancipation of Cabinda renews its call to the international community, particularly the UNHCR to ensure the protection of Cabindan refugees in both Congo's according to international standards on protection of refugees.


The intimidation and murder of Cabindans in the Congo's constitute a violation of international law, so these countries (DRC and Congo Brazzaville) should challenge
Angola and if necessary to approach the international institutions to enforce their sovereignty and ensure the safety of Cabindan refugees in their countries.


In this moment of pain, the Liberal Forum for the Emancipation of Cabinda presents its condolences to the family and to the people of Cabinda for the physical disappearance of this great fight for freedom.


                                                         MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE!
