Supporters of the coup on constitutional legality

From this page you can follow accurate and detailed information about those who have committed, on August the 6th 2008, a crime against the people of Mauritania by executing a coup on constitutional legality and using force as a means to gain power, fourteen months after the Mauritanians have elected Mr. Sidi Mohamed Ould Cheikh Abdallahi as their President, in a fair and transparent election according to the testimony of political opponents in Mauritania as well as that of the international community.

These pages contain information about those military personnel who carried out the military coup as a reaction to their removal from office, in a perfectly legal move by their Commander in Chief, President Sidi Ould Cheikh Abdellahi. It is important to note that this was not the first time in Mauritania a President uses his prerogatives to remove military officers from office. In fact all former heads of the state of Mauritania have issued similar reshuffles that included the leaders of the military institution. But today the Putschists are trying to prevent the first elected President of Mauritania from using a prerogative that was enjoyed by his predecessors, the legitimacy of many of whom was disputed among the Mauritanian people.

Here, you can find detailed information about these officers who seized power by force as soon they were removed from office. Is also available here, information about all those who provide a helping hand to them and try to justify their forfeiture or call upon the Mauritanian people to accept it as a fait accompli, at a time when the People have, for the first time in our History, announced their rejection to the seize of power by force and launched marches and demonstrations in various cities of the country, condemning the coup and demanding the return of constitutional legality.

Here you will find short and important information about the so-called "Supreme Council of the State", its members and their activities in the demolition of the Mauritanian Democracy. In addition, information about the political parties that endorsed their act, in a stark contrast with their claim of belief in democracy and the access to power through the ballot box rather than by force, is provided.
