The Court of Justice of the West African Economic and Monetary Union requests the suspension of economic sanctions against Mali

Posted in:

A decision is being organized that will come in the form of a new summit of ECOWAS, the Community of West African States, dedicated to the situation in Mali, tomorrow, Friday 25 March 2022. A meeting in which at this time the President of the transition, Assim Guetta, will participate.

The information was relayed by a state attorney in Mali and confirmed by a source within the organization. The Court of Justice of the West African Monetary Union (WAEMU), the State of Mali, has notified of its decision to suspend the sanctions imposed on Bamako. This decree has not yet been published, so we do not yet know the legal reasons for this.

As a reminder, a group of lawyers filed before the court, on February 15, two appeals against the sanctions filed by the leaders of the region on January 9, following the announcement of the extension of the transitional period. The first appeal requested that they be cancelled, and the second that his request be suspended due to their impact on the population.

These sanctions, which Bamako considered a violation of the law of the community, included in particular the suspension of almost all commercial transactions with Mali.
