African Diamond Author
A prominent Angolan journalist has been given a six-month suspended jail term for defaming army generals in a book that revealed killings and torture in the country’s diamond fields.
Rafael Marques de Morais described the sentence as a blow to freedom of expression in the southern African country: “It’s sending a message that ‘we can lock you up, including Rafael. We can send him to jail any time we want.’”
