The opponent's lawyers have indicated that his personal doctor - who was to accompany him - was unable to embark, although he was in possession of all the necessary documents. General Mokoko is therefore not accompanied by his doctor or his family, but only three security agents.

For several weeks, his family, but also several associations for the defense of human rights have called for his medical evacuation. The 78-year-old opponent - imprisoned for 4 years - is said to be suffering from malaria and heart problems, according to his doctor.

It was not until the morning of Wednesday July 29 that the Congolese authorities announced that they had accepted his transfer abroad for treatment, but only in Turkey and not in France or Morocco as requested by his family.
