Makaila Nguébla, Chadian blogger and dissident, announced this afternoon to Internet Without Borders that he received a safe-conduct and a long stay visa from the French diplomatic authorities in Guinea Conakry. The French authorities have told him that he could apply for asylum once present on the territory.

After more than two months in fear for the safety and physical integrity of our correspondent, Internet Without Borders welcomes the decision of the French government. Such decision to welcome the most famous Chadian online dissident conforms to the republican tradition of France,  a safe haven for freedom fighters.

Internet Without Borders  wishes Makaila to continue to inform the world about the social and political situation of his country, under more freedom-friendly skies.

This victory must not let us forget that other Chadians, including the blogger Jean Laokolé and the president of the Union of Chadian journalists Eric Topona, are still detained in Chad, for exercising the fundamental freedom to express their ideas and opinions.
