Spain has withdrawn political asylum from Equatorial Guinea opposition leader Severo Moto. The Spanish government said he had proven involvement in coup attempts in his home country, a former colony.

Mr Moto denies any links to coups and says he will lodge an appeal against the withdrawal of his asylum status.

Mr Moto has lived in Spain since the 1980s. He leads a self-proclaimed government-in-exile in Madrid, in opposition to President Teodoro Obiang.

Jail sentence

Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega said the move had been considered since June.

"Nobody has sufficient reason to accuse me of [plotting coups]," Mr Moto told the AFP news agency.

Mr Obiang accuses Mr Moto of sponsoring a failed coup plot last year and ministers have also claimed Spain was involved - claims denied in Madrid.

Last November, a court in Equatorial Guinea sentenced 19 people, including Mr Moto, to jail over the coup plot.

Mr Moto was sentenced to 63 years in prison.

Earlier this year, Spain rejected an Equatorial Guinea request to extradite Mr Moto, saying he would not get a fair trial.

Other alleged mercenaries are in prison in Zimbabwe, while Sir Mark Thatcher, son of the former UK prime minister, has pleaded guilty to unknowingly helping to finance the plot to seize power in oil-rich Equatorial Guinea.

In April, Mr Moto went missing from Spain, before he reappeared in Croatia.

He accused Equatorial Guinea and Spain of colluding to have him killed - an accusation both countries deny.

It is not clear if Mr Moto will have to leave Spain.

Equatorial Guinea is Africa's third largest oil producer.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
