  • Description

    THE POLITICAL SECRETARY OF THE INDEPENDENCE PARTI MOUVEMENT POPULAIRE (PMP) OF FRENCH SOMALILAND, M.HASSAN GOULED, SAID IN DJIBOUTI TODAY (WEDNESDAY) THAT "GRAVE CONSEQUENCES" WOULD FOLLOW IF NEXT SUNDAY'S REFERENDUM WENT AGAINST INDEPENDENCE FOR THE TERRITORY. HE REITERATED ALLEGATIONS OF "ELECTIONS RIGGING" BY THE FRENCH, WHO HAVE BEEN MOUNTING MASSIVE SECURITY PRECAUTIONS AMID GROWING THREATS OF VIOLENCE BY ANTI-FRENCH FACTIONS AS THE DATE OF THE REFERENDUM NEARS.

    FEARS OF TROUBLE HAVE BEEN FURTHER INCREASED BY A BOYCOTT ON PRIMARY SCHOOLS BY SOMALIS IN DJIBOUTI. IT'S REPORTED THAT THE FRENCH AUTHORITIES FEAR THE PRO-INDEPENDENCE SOMALIS MIGHT TRY TO PROVOKE FRENCH SECURITY FORCES INTO ACTION BEFORE THE REFERENDUM TO SUPPORT CLAIMS THAT THE VOTE WAS TAKEN UNDER MILITARY PRESSURE.
