Former President Alpha Condé has been granted a new visa to travel abroad for medical treatment.
The CNRD, the country’s ruling organization, did not provide any information on the 84-year-old man’s whereabouts.
According to local news sources, he went out of Guinea on a Turkish jet on Saturday.
Alpha Condé, the former president of Guinea, has been granted a new visa to go overseas for medical treatment.
The declaration was issued on Friday by the transitional authorities, citing appointments that the deposed leader had to honour and that will take place outside of the West African country.
Alpha Condé’s return to Guinea was announced just over a month ago.
The 84-year-old man’s destination is unknown at this time, according to a representative for the country’s ruling National Rallying Committee for Development.
There was also no indication of how long Conde would be staying.
According to several local news outlets, the former president traveled out of Guinea on a Turkish airliner on Saturday.
Condé and some 30 former top officers are being investigated by the Conakry public prosecutor for murder, torture, and looting, among other charges.
Despite the constitutional term limit, Conde’s desire to prolong his authority to a third term caused protests.
Colonel Doumbouya then deposed the old leader on September 5, 2021.
Alpha Condé was deemed “free” of his movements after his return in April, although he has not been seen in public since.
