"I join in your incomprehension in the face of this flagrant lack of coherence, the absence of dialogue and democracy that you have denounced, and that a large number of our active internationals have also denounced.

"It is for all these reasons that led me to resign from my position as Vice-President of the AFI and at the same time from its Steering Committee."
