The society and the information 27: information crosses the border

From this issue, we look at how information crossing the border helps people.

First, I take up incidents that happened in current Africa as a theme.


An incident happened in Congo

In 2009, a man was arrested by the national secret intelligence agency.

He was sentenced to a suspended prison term of one year on the charge of “publication of the disinformation” and “threat to national security”.

It all started with his announcement that military men and the government official mined uranium illegally from a mine that had closed for a safety and it had been causing the serious environmental disruption.

Furthermore, he exposed that mining rights had been granted to atomic energy company AREVA by a secret agreement of the Congo government and France.

He is Golden Misabiko, President of the Association Africaine de défense des Droits de l’Homme in Katanga province. 

He and the civil-rights activists of cooperator fitted a kidnapping, violence and intimidation.

The civil war that neighboring countries intervenes in a dispute has continued, and this country became impoverished.

This economy accounts for 45% of GDP only by the mineral resources export of diamonds.

Uranium of the problematic mine was used for atom bomb dropped on Japan.

This country has a parliamentary democracy, but the press freedom is extremely low.

According to “press freedom index 2013” by Reporters Without Borders, Congo was the 142nd within 179 countries in the world.

Subsequent deployment

It was foreign countries to have saved him.

Media of Europe and America reported this incident and appealed for the issue of environment, human rights and an unjust doubt.

Amnesty International that is a non-governmental organization focused on human rights appealed this incident all over the world, sent the request document to the President of Congo, and conferred with the United Nations.


Former American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met the President of Congo during her Africa tour in 2009, and requested his release.

His safety was secured, because the world supervised this incident.

In 2013, he stayed in South Africa, and continued the activity.

I seem that the secret agreement in which French president was also involved became unraveling by his exposure.














In Africa, the dig of rare minerals such as uranium, diamond and etc. still produces much darkness – environmental disruption, work accident, conflict, and corruption.



If cooperating with foreign country, it becomes possible to correct the injustice though the country has had little press freedom.
