International Laws on Self-Determination

The right to self-determination — which allows people to secede from a mother state if they so choose — appears in
various international conventions, including the founding document of the United Nations.

International Law Dealing with Self-determination and Territorial Integrity

U.N. Founding Charter (Article 1) — 1945
• One purpose of the United Nations is “to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of
equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace.”

U.N. Resolution 2625 — 1970
• “Every State has the duty to refrain from any forcible action which deprives peoples referred to in the elaboration of
the principle of equal rights and self-determination of their right to self-determination and freedom and independence.”
• “Nothing in the foregoing paragraphs shall be construed as authorizing or encouraging any action which would dismember,
or impair, totally or in part, the territorial integrity or political unity of sovereign and independent states conducting
themselves in compliance with the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples and thus possessed of a
government representing the whole people belonging to the territory without distinction to race, creed or colour.”

African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Article 20) — 1981
• “All peoples shall have . . . the unquestionable and inalienable right to self-determination. They shall freely determine
their political status and shall pursue their economic development according to the policy they have freely chosen.”

Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe’s Charter of Paris for a New Europe — 1990
• “We affirm that the ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious identity of national minorities will be protected.”
• “We reaffirm the equal rights of peoples and their right to self-determination in conformity with the Charter of the
United Nations and with the relevant norms of international law, including those related to territorial integrity of states.”

• The conference recognizes “the right of peoples to take any legitimate action, in accordance with the Charter of the
U.N., to realize their inalienable right of self-determination.”

Lunda Tchokwe Political Prisoners

January 2012

Five political prisoners and two detainees held at Kakanda prison in Lunda Norte, Angola, are suffering from deteriorating health after finishing a 13-day-long hunger strike in protest against their continued detention. The conditions in which they are held have not improved, and they continue to be denied access to medical treatment, clean water, and adequate food supplies.

The seven men: Sérgio Augusto; Sebastião Lumani; José Muteba; António Malendeca; Domingos Henrique Samujaia, who were tried and convicted of crimes against the state at different times in 2010 and 2011, and two detainees, Mário Muamuene and Domingos Capenda, who were tried and acquitted on 8 March yet remain in prison, went on hunger strike from 16 to 29 May 2011. Their health has since continued to worsen owing to the persisting lack of sanitation, inadequate water provision and insufficient food supply- a cupful of rice once a day.

These conditions place prisoners’ lives at risk and amount to cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.

Amnesty International is particularly concerned about Sebastião Lumani, José Muteba, António Malendeka and Augusto Sérgio, who are reportedly the weakest in the group and are suffering from other ailments. In addition, Sebastião Lumani and José Muteba have reportedly contracted typhoid and are too weak to stand or walk without assistance.

The men named above were part of a group of some 40 members of the Comissão do Manifesto Jurídico Sociológico do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe (Commission of the Legal Sociological Manifesto of Lunda Tchokwe Protectorate- CMJSP-Lunda) and were arrested at various times from April 2009 to October 2010. They were initially held at Conduege prison in Lunda Norte Province.

On 7 February 2011 they were transferred to the newer Kakanda prison in Dundo, where conditions were initially better. However, the prison has become overcrowded; there is NO electricity; food and drinking water provision is scarce and there are no health facilities there.

On 17 March 2011, over 30 of the CMJSP-Lunda detainees were released following a petition of habeas corpus lodged by their lawyer. However the five convicted prisoners and the two detainees mentioned above were not among them.

Sérgio Augusto; Sebastião Lumani; José Muteba; António Malendeca; Domingos Henrique Samujaia, were tried and convicted of crimes against the state at different times in 2010 and 2011 and sentenced to prison terms ranging between three and six years.

Regime Comunista e Corrupto do JES-MPLA coloca membros do
Manifesto do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe a 3 anos de prisão

10 March 2011

No dia 8 de Outubro de 2010, haviam sido raptados os membros do Manifesto do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe em casa por volta das 19 horas, na cidade de Dundo, Lunda-Norte, sem mandado, a luz do revogado artigo 26 da Lei 7/78 - Crimes contra a segurança do Estado, trata-se dos Senhores Domingos Henrique tc Samujaia, Domingos Capenda e Paulo Muamuene.

Neste mesmo mês e ano 2010 constituiu-se um grupo de Advogados da Associação Mãos Livres, que no pretérito mês de Janeiro de 2011, interpuseram um Habeas Corpus ao Tribunal Supremo, porque a Lei 7/78 foi revogado e porque a prisão excedeu o tempo que a lei estipula.

O Tribunal Supremo até hoje não respondeu ao Habeas Corpus. No terreno os Tribunais e a Policia continua a perseguir com prisões arbitrarias e a prender os membros do Manifesto, um movimento reivindicativo pacifico, sem violência e que pauta pelo dialogo como forma de resolução de qualquer tipo de conflito.

Hoje dia 10 de Março de 2011, fomos surpreendidos, por volta das 14 horas que os nossos membros na prisão da Kakanda, no Dundo haviam sido levados ao tribunal Provincial para responderem pelo processo N.º 4381-B/2010 ( 3 membros), com um advogado oficioso o Sr Dr Tchizeka, no lugar dos Advogados de defesa.

De acordo com as informações que acabamos de receber, foi condenado a 3 anos de prisão efectiva o Activista Domingos Henrique, pelo artigo 21 da Lei 23 do CP Angola, que de acordo com a mesma fonte é Crime de Rebelião e Perturbação da Ordem Publica. No lugar de Crimes contra a segurança do Estado que inicialmente haviam sido indiciados em 2010.

Os outros dois membros do mesmo processo foram colocados em Liberdade, trata-se dos Activistas Domingos Capenda e Paulo Muamuene.

Desde 2007 até a data já foram condenados 5 membros do Manifesto do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe, com sentenças que vão desde os 3 à 6 anos de prisão efectiva, todos pelo tribunal da Lunda-Norte. Em Luanda, foram colocados em Liberdade condicional dois membros e o Dr.º Jota Filipe Malakito continua na Comarca de Viana no Processo N.º 3450 - A/2009 Crimes contra a segurança de Estado.

Dr Jota Filipe Malakito, Continua doente com problemas de perca continuada de visão, problemas dos testículos e no Joelho. Tanto os já condenados e os outros membros por julgarem cerca de 39 continuam no Kakanda.

7 de Fevereiro de 2011 a Policia do Lukapa havia detido
Cidadão António Txichicussula por tirar Fotocopia em documento com Informações De Jota Malakito

O cidadão em causa, é activista do Movimento do Manifesto do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe, continua há mais de um mês detido na cadeia da Policia do Comando Municipal de Lukapa, LUNDA-NORTE.

Continua numa sala em condições péssimas de vida, falta de alimentação e a proibição de receber visitas. Não tem processo instaurado. Ninguém explica as razões do porque o mesmo continua detido.

Informações que a CMJSPLT teve acesso, indicam que a prisão do António Txichicussula é ilegal, a secção da PGR municipal não legalizou a mesma. Solicitamos que o Cidadão em causa seja posto em liberdade.

A seguir é o teor da informação que havíamos noticiado no dia 10/02/2011.

The People of Lunda and Moxico march naked over diamonds

Where is the revenue of the Diamonds of the producing regions? “In the ties” reply the population of the Lunda Tchokwe. Near to the 4th largest deposit of Diamonds in the World in the city of Saurimo, the capital of Lunda South.

This are the areas less developed in contrast to the wealth of the Diamonds. There are no health centres in the Lunda Tchokwe region. There are no running water, electricity, roads, and houses. Both health and school infrastructures are non existent. The people of Lunda Tchokwe lived better during the civil war than now!

“The MPLA Regime shows their ties, and say the society is developing”. The MPLA Regime farce continues On the 4th of February 2011 the Deputy minister checked the readiness of the MPLA Regime Police Forces in Lunda Norte.

MPLA Regime - Political detainees are held under repealed law must be released

Amnesty International - 31 January 2011

Nearly 40 members of the Commission of the Legal Sociological Manifesto of the Lunda Tchokwe Protectorate (Comissão do Manifesto Jurídico Sociológico do Protectorado da Lunda Tchokwe – CMJSP-Lunda), an organization that calls peacefully for economic and administrative autonomy of the diamond rich Lunda provinces in north-eastern Angola, were arrested between April 2009 and October 2010. Most are being held in Conduege prison in Dundo, Lunda Norte province, although three, including the organization’s leader were imprisoned in the capital, Luanda. Most were charged with contravening the now repealed Article 26 of Law on Crimes Against the Security of the State (Law 7/78 of May 1978). The repealed article criminalised “All and every act, not foreseen in the law that puts at risk or could put at risk the security of the state”. This Article was vague and open to misuse by the Angolan authorities who often used it to arrest peaceful political activists like the CMJSP-Lunda Tchokwe members as well as human rights activists. The article also violated international human rights law.

Soon after the law was revoked in December 2010, four human rights activists who had been convicted under the terms of this law were released from prison unconditionally.

However, 33 members of the CMJSP-Lunda Tchokwe remain in detention without trial on charges of contravening this article.

Three other members of CMJSP-Lunda Tchokwe are serving prison sentences after been convicted in September 2010 on the basis of Article 26.

The Angolan authorities have not responded to the detainees’ lawyers appeal for their release or to the writ of habeas corpus issued on 14 January 2011 They have also not provided an explanation for their continued detention.

It is reported that on 19 January the Supreme Court, which deals with habeas corpus petitions, requested the Lunda Norte Provincial Court to explain why these detainees had not been released. However, the Lunda Norte Provincial Court has not yet responded to the request.

The continued detention of the 36 members of the CMJSP-Lunda Tchokwe, charged under a law that has now been repealed, is a violation of their human rights. Amnesty International calls on the Angolan authorities to immediately and unconditionally release these and all other detainees in the country being held for allegedly violating this law, as well as those serving sentences after being convicted on the basis of this law.

Presos políticos em Angola detidos nos termos de uma lei inexistente

17 January 2011

Mais de 30 reclusos angolanos, ainda detidos em condições deploráveis nos termos de uma lei de segurança vaga e abolida o ano passado, devem ser libertados, declararam os seus familiares à Amnistia Internacional.

Trinta e três membros de um grupo conhecido como CMJSP-Lunda, que defenderam pacificamente a autonomia da região da Lunda Tchokwe, estão ainda detidos na cadeia de Conduege, no norte de Angola, apesar de a legislação de segurança generalista ao abrigo da qual foram acusados ter sido revogada em Dezembro de 2010.

O agora revogado Artigo 26º da lei 7/78 criminalizava “todo e qualquer acto, não previsto na lei, que ponha ou possa pôr em perigo a segurança do estado” e prestava-se a aplicação incorrecta pelas autoridades para prender activistas políticos pacíficos e mesmo activistas dos direitos humanos em alguns casos.

A esposa de um recluso, que falou à Amnistia Internacional sob condição de anonimato, reclamou “A lei já não existe. Então como é que [o meu marido] ainda continua detido? Se a lei já não existe, deviam deixá-los ir para casa.”

“Peço ao governo que os solte. O crime deixou de ser crime.”

"Soubemos que outros foram libertados, então porque é que ele tem que permanecer na prisão?"

"Devem soltá-los para que voltem para as suas famílias... Deixaram-nos a sofrer sem os nossos maridos... Os filhos precisam deles.”

As autoridades angolanas deixaram sem resposta os apelos dos advogados no sentido de libertar os membros da CMJSP-Lunda desde a revogação do Artigo 26º e não apresentaram também qualquer razão para que continuem detidos.

Os activistas de direitos humanos condenados nos termos desta lei noutras partes do país foram já libertados desde a revogação da lei em Dezembro, mas a Amnistia Internacional receia que os membros da CMJSP-Lunda estejam a ser alvos deliberados de penas continuadas.

Os reclusos são originários de uma área rica em diamantes nas províncias do leste de Angola. A Amnistia Internacional recebeu relatos de abusos dos direitos humanos cometidos nesta região.

Durante o ano de 2010, um membro da CMJSP-Lunda que se encontrava detido faleceu devido à falta de tratamento médico na prisão e 37 membros do grupo quase morreram de fome e foram sujeitos a condições terríveis durante a sua detenção na cadeia de Conduege, na Lunda Norte.

“Saudamos a revogação do Artigo 26º, mas as autoridades angolanas devem agora libertar sem demora todos os reclusos que foram originalmente detidos nos termos desta legislação já extinta”, frisou Muluka-Anne Miti, investigadora da Amnistia Internacional sobre questões relacionadas com Angola.

A CMJS-Lunda foi criada em 2007 para defender a autonomia para o ex-reino Tchokwe, que abrange as actuais províncias da Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul, Moxico e parte do Kuando Kubango.

Abaixo a Ocupacao do MPLA

September 2010

O território do REINO DA LUNDA TCHOKWE, é o mais atrasado, 90% da população activa, menor de 35 anos de idade é analfabeta, os Guerrilheiros que combateram ao lado do MPLA e da UNITA, foram entregue ao abandono, não existe nenhuma instituição UNIVERSITARIA em toda a região, dai a falta de quadros, não há emprego porque não existe empresas, os Projectos Mineiros em nada beneficiam a região e não empregam os nativos.

Inhumane conditions under the unelected Communist Regime of the MPLA

September 2010

O Tratado de Protectorado Internacional da Lunda Tchokwe

1. A Lunda Tchokwe é um Estado criado por DEUS e organizado politicamente pelos nossos bisavôs no século XI, reconhecido pelas 14 Nações Europeias e não só presentes na Conferência de Bérlim em 1884 – 1885 e pelo Reino de Ndongo (Kimbundo), através das subscrições dos 6 Tratados de Protectorado celebrados entre o Governo de Portugal e os Soberanos e Potentados Lundas e Tratados de fronteiras convencionais desde 1885 – 1895, ano de mapeamento dos limites definitivos do Estado da Lunda Tchokwe.

2. O Reino de Ndongo (Kimbundu), representado nos autos pelo Soberano AMBANGO, Grande Soba de Malanje e o seu irmão Don Augusto Jayme, que testemunhou ao representante do Governo de Portugal o Major do Exercito e Chefe da Comitiva Cientifica Portuguesa a Mussumba do Imperador Muatianvua, Henrique Augusto Dias de Carvalho que, Angola terminava em Malanje!

E, para que no futuro não houvesse dúvidas, e como os Soberanos Lundas não sabiam ler nem escrever, o sr Henrique de Carvalho, informou a todos que, ditassem os seus nomes e, cada um colocasse a frente do seu nome, uma cruz ou, o sinal de mais (+).- VERBA VOLANT SCRIPTA MANENT.

3. As palavras voam as escritas mantém-se. É por isso que, o 1.º Tratado de Protectorado Internacional da Lunda Tchokwe, está escrito em Kimbundu a língua natural do Reino de Ndongo – a palavra “KIVAJANA”, traduzida para a língua portuguesa significa Tratado.

4. A Lunda Tchokwe Tornou-se Protectorado Internacional, pelo facto, dos Tratados oficiais terem sido, celebrados por 3 Nações e testemunhados pelas 14 Nações Europeias. Os 5 Tratados de Protectorados, estão em língua Kimbundu, o 1.º e os outros 4 em língua Portuguesa entre 1885 a 1887.

5. O Tratado de fronteiras na “LUNDA”, celebrado a 25 de Maio de 1891 em Lisboa entre o Governo de Portugal e o Governo da Bélgica, ratificado no dia 24 de Março de 1894 em Bruxelas sob mediação do Governo Francês com a observação Internacional do Governo da Alemanha, o Governo do Reino Unido e do Vaticano, a troca de assinaturas teve lugar em Paris no dia 1 de Agosto 1894, esta escrito em Português e Francês.- 1.ª PACTA SCRIPTA SUNT SERVANDA.

6. A LUNDA TCHOKWE é uma propriedade colectiva, bem titulada, bem reconhecida internacionalmente e registada pelo seu Protector Legal com a letra “G” com o seu Governo estabelecido pelo artigo 44º da Lei 8904 de 19 de Fevereiro de 1955. Os tratados de protectorado e o acordo de alvore, são títulos de reconhecimento formal ou de “Jure”, dos 2 Estados, sob autoria moral e material do mesmo estado Português.

7. O Protectorado, um direito fundamental de propriedade Real ou coisa material ou, um imóvel ou Estado criado por “DEUS” e, organizado politicamente pelos donos, através de normas do direito consuetutinário ou costumeiro, reconhecido formalmente por outros Estados através de tratados de protecção externa, aplicáveis á regras ou normas do direito internacional dos tratados.
