NGO denounced damage to citizens due to sanctions against Niger

Niamey, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) Several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) based in Niger requested Tuesday humanitarian exemptions to the sanctions imposed on this country due to the July 26 coup d'état.

The measures, most by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) member countries, impose trade and financial sanctions against Niger and threaten a possible military intervention if former President Mohamed Bazoum is not released and reinstated.

Such a situation, the NGOs denounced, has disrupted the humanitarian aid needed by 4.3 million Nigeriens.

As a result, stocks of vital supplies such as food or medical supplies are being held up at borders, and these delays could be disastrous, they add.

So far, the military junta in Niamey has rejected such threats and appointed a new prime minister to form a transitional government.

A military junta called the National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland announced on national television on July 26 the dismissal of President Mohamed Bazoum, the suspension of all institutions, the closure of the nation’s borders, and a night curfew.
