The Guinean government on Tuesday said it would maintained the ban on demonstration to support Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, whose regime is being battered by airstrikes by Western countries.

On Monday night, the governor of Conakry command, Resco Camara, announced the ban on state radio and television.

The governor said the government was informed that certain group of people wanted to stage a demonstration in the capital Conakry in support of the embattled Libyan leader.

This would not be accepted, the governor said, warning any group of people caught defying the law would be pursued in a court of justice.

The governor called on all five mayors of Conakry and area chiefs to make sure that they implement the ban to the fullest.

Lots of Guineans have expressed sympathy with the Libyan leader, denouncing the air raids on Libya by France, Britain and the United States as unjust and unacceptable.

Pro-Gaddafi Guineans said they would seize this opportunity to show their gratefulness to the Libyan leader who has always been kind to Guinea.

The Guinean government's fear is that some of the demonstrators may take the opportunity during the peaceful march to indulge in odd acts that will cause disorder in the country.

Lots of Guinean youths have been making preparations for the events set for Friday, when they are to stage the planned demonstration and dress in a white T-shirt of gown with placard in their hands lambasting the intervention in Libya.

Guinean President Alpha Conde is paying a visit in France for talks on Libya and Cote d'Ivoire. The demonstration could not make him feel fine on French soil, according to local analysts.
